EV Chargepoint Grant

Government Electric Car Grants

The Government’s new EV chargepoint grant provides £350 towards the cost of purchasing and installing an EV charger for:

  • Homeowners who live in a flat or apartment
  • Anyone who lives in rented accommodation (with their landlord’s permission)

Under the scheme, authorised installers of electric vehicle charge points will be able to apply for the grant on behalf of their customer in order to reduce the costs of installing an EV charger in an eligible property.

The EV chargepoint grant can provide up to 75% of the cost or installation of one chargepoint to a maximum of £350 per installation (including VAT)

Any customer who has previously qualified for a grant isn’t eligible to apply again, including if they’ve applied through previous schemes such as the EVHS

What has happened to the Electric Vehicle Homecharge Scheme (EVSH)?

Here at Downtown Electrical, we are NICEIC-approved contractors.

The new EV chargepoint grant is a direct replacement for the previous EVHS, meaning the previous scheme is no longer available to homeowners (unless they’ve already applied for a grant under the previous scheme)

Unfortunately this means any homeowner who would have been eligible under the EVSH is no longer able to apply for it.

The EV chargepoint grant is now part of a move to extend more cost effective and efficient EV chargepoint installation to flat and apartment owners, or those living in rented accommodation who have their landlord’s permission to install an EV charger on the premises or property.

How to apply for the EV chargepoint grant

As a customer you don’t have to worry about applying the grant yourself.

By choosing an EVSH approved installer for your ev chargepoint project (like us at Downtown Electrical) your installation partner will apply for the grant on your behalf.

At Downtown Electrical we work closely with all our customers to check their eligibility for any grants that can reduce the costs of EV charger installations, and ensure they get the best deal on any project.

  • David Alexander ★★★★★
    Excellent professional service. George and Glenn overcame a number of problems, including significant delays with Northern Powergrid. They did so in a very professional and friendly manner and I would definitely recommend them to other … More businesses considering the installation of EV chargepoints.
  • Fraser M ★★★★★
    Excellent communication and service throughout. Highly recommended.
  • Linda Gartland ★★★★★
    Installing the charge point for an electric car outside our 400 year old house was a challenge which required experience and inventiveness beyond most installers. Downtown Electrical were extremely helpful through every stage of planning … More the installation, and did a fantastic job on the day. I thoroughly recommend them.
  • Ed Hayes ★★★★★
    Took my hamster to these guys for an operation and they injected it in the wrong place - unfortunately he died.. Do not take your pets to this company. Or your Hoover.Only joking, they did an amazingly efficient job installing a podpoint … More charger at my home this morning and George was massively knowledgeable and efficient throughout. My initial enquiry was dealt with in the most prompt and professional way I have ever experienced with any company actually. I highly recommend them.
