Time is running out for homeowners to claim £350 (up to 75%) of their Electric Car Charger Install as the EVHS grant (Electric Vehicle Homecharge Scheme) stops its current long-term offer on 31 March.
Go Electric is urging all electric car owners that do not have a dedicated charging point installed to act now before missing out on this excellent opportunity for good.
Last year the Government announced that from April 2022, the Electric Vehicle Homecharge Scheme (EVHS) will not be available to homeowners (including people with mortgages) who live in properties such as bungalows and detached, semi-detached or terraced housing.
To be eligible for the grant, all charging point installations in single-unit properties need to be completed by 31 March 2022.
The scheme is changing dramatically and in its new format it will only remain available to:
- homeowners who live in flats
- people in rental accommodation (flats and single-use properties)
About the EVHS Grant
The EVHS grant has been available in the UK for a number of years and has offered excellent incentives to electric vehicle owners that have had a dedicated charging point installed at home. It currently provides a 75% contribution to the cost of one charge point and its installation.
EVHS Grant Requirements
To be eligible for a grant a person must own, lease, or have ordered a qualifying vehicle. Their property must also have dedicated off-street parking. If a homeowner has two electric vehicles, they are eligible to apply for the grant twice.
There are a few more eligibility points to be covered too:
- The charging point must be installed by a OZEV approved installer (Go Electric is proud to be approved)
- The property must be a domestic property (Though the workplace charging scheme is available for commercial customers)
- It must be an existing property – these grants are not available for new-builds or properties that are not occupied
- The customer must be a resident at the property. This will be checked via vehicle registration details
- All charge points must be on the EVHS approved charge point model list at the time of installation.
We will be happy to discuss and confirm all requirements for your job and any other questions you might have if you get in touch.
