Calling all Landlords - You could claim government grants for EV charging points



The EV chargepoint grant for landlords gives financial support to landlords and other entities to buy and install electric vehicle (EV) chargepoints at residential or commercial properties in the UK.


To access the grant, a landlord must first register. Installers approved by the Office for Zero Emission Vehicles (OZEV) can then make claims for work completed on their behalf.


The grant provides funding towards the cost of buying and installing EV chargepoints.

Chargepoints may be able to charge one or more vehicles simultaneously, depending on the number of sockets they have.


The grant amount given is per chargepoint socket installed. It provides up to 75% of the cost towards the purchase and installation of a chargepoint socket, limited to £350 per grant.


Landlords can receive up to 200 grants a year for residential properties, and a further 100 for commercial properties.


These may be across a number of properties and installations or just for one property.

The grant is provided by OZEV.
