OZEV Grants for home and workplace charge points
There are two types of OZEV grants for charge points:
- Home charge point grant (EVHS)
- Workplace charge point grant (WCS)
The OZEV Grant (also known as the Electric Vehicle Homecharge Scheme (EVHS) offers a £350 discount off the purchase & installation costs of a home charging point. The grant is available for most EVs and plug-in hybrids. You can claim one charge point per qualifying vehicle. A household can claim up to two charge point grants.
From April 2022, the EVHS will no longer be open to homeowners (including people with mortgages) who live in single-unit properties such as bungalows and detached, semi-detached or terraced housing.
The scheme will remain open to:
homeowners who live in flats
people in rental accommodation (flats and single-use properties)
The OZEV Grant also known as the Workplace Charging Scheme (WCS), reduces the purchase and installation cost of a workplace charge point by 75% (capped at £350 per socket).
The grant is available for most EVs and plug-in hybrids
You can claim from this scheme for up to a maximum of 20 charging stations (20 single - socket or 10 double socket charge points)
