Save £500 on purchase and installation
The Government has set up a scheme to support the wider use of electric and hybrid cars through the Office of Low Emission Vehicles (OLEV). The grant for home charge points, also known as the Electric Vehicle Homecharge Scheme (EVHS), offers £500 off the purchase and installation costs for a home charge point.
The OLEV Grant (also known as the Electric Vehicle Homecharge Scheme (EVHS) offers a £500 discount off the purchase & installation costs of a home charging point. The grant is available for most EVs and plug-in hybrids. You can claim one charge point per qualifying vehicle. A household can claim up to two charging points
How can I qualify for the OLEV Grant?
In order to qualify for the OLEV Grant, you will need to have bought a full electric or plug-in hybrid car from the 1st October 2016 onwards.
You must also have off-street parking (for example, a driveway or garage).
If you do not have access to off-street parking, your Local Authority may be able to help.

What are the differences in costs for petrol/EVs?
Traditional petrol vehicles may currently outweigh EVs in terms of options and purchase cost, but electric vehicles are cheaper to run. They are exempt from road tax as they don’t produce emissions, and with the growing demand, the infrastructure will continue to develop.
How much does it cost to charge an electric car? The charging costs to refuel electric cars and plug-in hybrids are also lower than filling up a traditional ICE car, considering ever-increasing petrol prices. This is especially true of using home charging points, which offer cheap and simple overnight charging. With a home charging point, you can fully charge your vehicle for less than £4 a time.
