OLEV HomeCharge Scheme

What is the Grant?

To help private plug-in vehicle owners offset some of the upfront cost of the purchase and installation of a dedicated domestic recharging unit, the Government is running the Electric Vehicle Home charge Scheme.

Customers who are the registered keeper, lessee or have primary use of an eligible electric vehicle may receive up to 75% (capped at £395, inc. VAT) off the total capital costs of the ChargePoint and associated installation costs.

Who can apply for the OLEV HomeCharge Grant?

Anyone who can provide evidence of keepership, lease, be named as the primary user of an eligible electric vehicle or have a vehicle on order in order will be able to qualify for the grant.

How much can I claim?

The grant is a 75% contribution towards the cost of one ChargePoint and its installation up to a maximum of £395 (including VAT) per household/eligible vehicle.

I'm not sure my vehicle is eligible - how do I check?
I have a vehicle on order - can I install in advance?

You can install your charge point up to four months ahead of getting your electric vehicle.

My vehicle is a company car - can I still claim?

As well as Electric Vehicle Owners, the grant is also available too:

  • Individuals who are assigned a company car for at least six months on or after 1 October 2016;
  • Individuals who lease an eligible vehicle for at least six months on or after 1 October 2016;
  • Individuals who have leased the vehicle as part of a salary-sacrifice
    scheme from 1 October 2016 onwards;
  • Individuals who are named by their employer as the primary user of an eligible electric vehicle for at least six months on or after 1 October 2016
