Am I Eligible for the OZEV Grant?

‘Am I eligible for the OZEV grant?‘ should be a question on the mind of anyone who is considering buying an electric vehicle.

However, some people may not know what the OZEV grant actually is.

The Electric Vehicle Home charge Scheme or EVHS for short is a government grant by the Office for Zero Emission Vehicles (OZEV). It provides a contribution of up to 75% towards the cost of installing an electric car charger at your home. Certain criteria need to be met in order to receive the grant but we are here to talk you through what’s needed.

The grant is capped at £350 per installation and the main requirement is that you own, lease or have ordered a qualifying vehicle and you have dedicated off-street parking at your address. The grant can really reduce the cost of some chargers making it much more cost-effective to have one installed at your property.

But what are the other requirements to be able to claim the grant? The charger you choose must be OZEV approved and you must use an OZEV approved installer. We are an OZEV approved installer and all charges on our site are approved. You can view them here.

To be eligible for the grant the vehicle must be listed on the EVHS eligible vehicles list at the time of installation. The list includes battery-electric and plug-in electric cars, vans, taxis and motorcycles.

To make things even easier for you, we will apply for the grant on your behalf. We just need you to fill out a few questions to check you are eligible and then we can submit the application to the government. The prices on our site already have the grant reduction.
