The EV Chargepoint Grant for flat owner-occupiers and people living in rented properties is open to Electric Vehicle drivers who live in a flat or rent a property.

The grant will cover up to 75% of the total costs of the purchase and installation of EV chargepoints (inclusive of VAT) and enabling infrastructure for future chargepoints.

This grant is a continuation of the current Electric Vehicle Homecharge Scheme but with a reduced scope of who can apply.

A person will qualify if they have a qualifying vehicle and property.

Vehicle requirements To be eligible for the grant, the vehicle must be listed on the EVHS eligible vehicles list at the time of installation.

The following people are eligible to access the grant:

  • individuals who become registered keepers of a new or second-hand eligible electric vehicle – note that the registered keeper is not necessarily the owner of a vehicle, but the person responsible for the car that pays for road tax and MOT

  • individuals who are assigned a company car

  • individuals who lease an eligible vehicle

  • individuals who are named, by their employer, as the primary user of an eligible electric vehicle

  • individuals who have ordered an eligible electric vehicle

Property requirements

The following criteria apply:

The property is either:

  • a flat (a single unit property in a multiunit building). The people living in it may be the leaseholder or freeholder of the flat or rent it; or

  • a single unit property that is rented in its entirety. This is where the applicant’s tenancy is defined by a rental agreement. Mortgaged properties are not eligible

  • This grant is for domestic properties only

  • The grant is only for retrofit (existing) properties; it cannot be used for new-builds.

  • The applicant must be resident at the property

  • Any necessary third-party permissions (such as from a landlord or freeholder or managing agent of a block of flats) must be obtained before an installation occurs

  • The property must be located in England, Wales, Scotland or Northern Ireland (applicants in the Channel Islands and Isle of Man are not eligible)

Dedicated off-street parking

The property must have designated, private off-street parking. This may be co-located with the property or separate from it. Where the parking is separate, the person applying must be able to demonstrate that they have a legal entitlement to the parking space.

The parking must be suitable for a chargepoint installation (a survey before installation must be conducted by the installer). The parking must be able to permit an eligible vehicle to be charged safely. The customer must be able to access the parking space at all times.
