What is the OLEV Grant?

The UK government is committed to providing infrastructure for the uptake of electric vehicles to meet their pre-agreed green initiatives. Homeowners were able to claim up to £350 per home charger installed under the previous OLEV grant rules. The cost of domestic EV charger installation has reduced quite significantly as electric car charge points are now more easily accessible and affordable than ever before, however, flats, businesses and rental properties are very much underserved. The new OLEV grant structure provides financial incentives for forward thinking businesses and landlords making it cheaper than ever before to invest in EV chargers for your premises as inevitably, you'll need to install them at some point! If your home or business could benefit from EV charger installation the "OLEV Grant" also known as the OZEV grant is a government grant which entitles you to claim a significant discount. For example:

  • Owners of commercial properties can claim £350 per socket and receive funding for up to 40 sockets across all sites in the application
  • Workplace Voucher Scheme applicable to businesses, charities and public sector organisations, can claim £350 per socket across all sites up to £14,000
  • Landlords/ Property Owners can claim £350 per charging socket to landlords. Up to 200 grants for residential properties and 100 grants for commercial properties can be claimed each year via the EV chargepoint grant
  • EV infrastructure grants can provide for necessary infrastructure like wiring and posts worth £30,000. Up to 30 infrastructure grants can be claimed each year
  • Renters and leaseholders can receive a grant of up to £350 per person to purchase and install a charge point

About OLEV: The home EV charger grant

This current scheme, funded by the UK Government’s Office is called the Electric Vehicle Home Charging Scheme (EVHCS); it enables low emission vehicle owners (or committed buyers) to install EV charging points at their home at a reduced installation cost.

Under the Electric Vehicle Home Charge Scheme or the OLEV grant, the UK government provides an offer of up to £350 for your electric vehicle socket installation at home (max 2 sockets), making the electric charge point installation process easier and easing the financial burden on your transition to electric vehicles. You need to use an OLEV approved charger installed by an approved installer to qualify.

What Home EV charge points do you need?

It is important that you have charging points that are compatible with a wide range of EVs as there are a range of voltage types available. The Type 27kW charger is the most common option as this can be compatible with all the new and best-selling electric vehicles in the market. Electric vehicle charging at home can take a short time of three to four hours.

Wall or socket points?

Wall installations are the most commonly installed electric plug points, however, sockets that are installed on posts are also an option. The latter is more expensive than the former as electricity needs to be supplied to the post from under the ground.

Costs of an electric plug point installation at work

Installation is generally charged in addition to the cost of the plug point, however, up to £350 pounds can be claimed under the OLEV grant for home and for your business. As mentioned above, electric power points on posts tend to be more expensive, costing from £2500 to £5000 after the application of the EVHCS or WCS grant. An advanced rapid charger can cost up to £35000. It is important that get multiple quotes from a number of different manufacturers as to your options.
