Government confirm continuation of home-charging grant to encourage drivers' move to electric



The Office for Low Emission Vehicles (OLEV) has this week confirmed the continuation of the ‘electric vehicle homecharge scheme’ (EVHS) and ‘workplace charging scheme’ (WCS) for another year.


From 1 April 2020 the grant for these schemes will be set at £350 towards the cost of purchase and installation of a chargepoint at home through the electric vehicle homecharge scheme, and £350 towards a chargepoint socket at work through the workplace charging scheme.

This is a reduction from £500 to £350. The new rate will apply to installations on or after 1 April 2020 for EVHS, and will apply to voucher applications submitted on or after 1 April 2020 for WCS.


The change in the grant will enable twice as many people to benefit from a grant (from 30,000 to 57,000 under the EVHS). This will support the expected increase in the uptake of electric vehicles.


Currently over 120,000 domestic chargepoint installations have benefited from HMG grants as well as over 6,500 workplace installations, across the UK.
