The Electric Vehicle Homecharge Scheme (EVHS) is a capped £350 grant that provides up to a 75% contribution of one chargepoint and its installation.
The main requirement is that a person owns, leases, or has ordered a qualifying vehicle and has dedicated off-street parking at their property. A person may apply for 2 chargepoints at the same property if they have 2 qualifying vehicles.
Unfortunately, from April 2022 this scheme will no longer be available for a majority of homeowners (including people with mortgages) who live in single-unit properties such as bungalows and detached, semi-detached or terraced housing.
The scheme will remain open to:
- homeowners who live in flats
- people in rental accommodation (flats and single-use properties)
If you wish to benefit from the grant, applicants need to act now!
The installation must be completed by 31st March 2022 and the claim submitted to the DVLA by 30th April 2022.
