Help with paying for an electric vehicle charge point
The government's Office for Zero-Emission Vehicles (OZEV) offers several grant schemes to promote the use of electric vehicles and the necessary charging provision.
EV chargepoint grant for flat owner-occupiers and people living in rented properties
This scheme provides grant funding of up to 75% towards the cost of installing electric vehicle smart charge points at domestic properties across the UK.
It replaces the previous Electric Vehicle Homecharge Scheme which was open to all homeowners with dedicated off-street parking as part of their property.
The new scheme now focuses the funding on flat owner-occupiers and people living in rented properties.

If you live in this type of property, then talk to your landlord or provider about this scheme.
