The OZEV Electric Vehicle Homecharge Scheme grant

As of April 1st 2022, the OZEV Homecharge Scheme grant is only available if you rent a property, with the exception of flats which can be owned or rented.

The Office for Zero Emission Vehicles (OZEV - Formerly OLEV) is a government department that exists to promote the adoption of low emission vehicles. Their Electric Vehicle Homecharge Scheme grant makes government funding available to homeowners to reduce the cost of their EV charger. The grant provides a 75% contribution, up to £350 to the cost of one charger and its installation.

How do I apply for the grant?

Your installer will apply for the OZEV grant on your behalf. That way they do the heavy lifting and just knock the discount off your invoice. All you need to do is send them some information about yourself, your home and your vehicle so that they can claim it for you. Your installer will explain what’s needed before your installation. It’s really straight forward!

If you're a residential landlord but you don't own your property through a business, you aren't eligible yourself. Your tenant would need to apply.
