The Office for Zero Emission Vehicles (OZEV) offers a grant of up to £350 to help pay some of the costs of buying and installing a chargepoint. This is available to anyone who owns or rents a flat

Previously referred to as the Electric Vehicle Homecharge Scheme (EVHS), the OZEV EV chargepoint grant is available to drivers of most electric and plug-in hybrid cars.

The grant allows you to claim towards the installation of one charge point per vehicle.

The grant allows you to claim towards the installation of one charge point per vehicle.


The manufacturer and installer of your charge point must be authorised by the OZEV. In addition, you must prove that you own or use a vehicle that meets the grant’s eligibility criteria. This can be:

  • as a registered owner
  • if you’ve leased one for at least six months
  • if you’ve used one as a work vehicle for at least six months
  • if you currently have an eligible vehicle on order

If your vehicle lease is bundled with a chargepoint, it must:

  • say that you own the chargepoint once payment is complete
  • list the cost of the chargepoint and installation, including VAT

You must also:

  • make sure the chargepoint warranty meets the grant requirements
  • make sure the associated vehicle lease is for at least six months
  • You must show your installer proof that you lease your electric vehicle.
  • In addition, your vehicle must meet the following criteria:
  • Your electric vehicle or plug-in hybrid must have been purchased after 1st October 2016.
  • All full battery electric vehicles are eligible, but only plug-in electric vehicles with CO2 emissions of 75g/km or less.

The OZEV maintains a list of eligible vehicles.

How to claim

The grant is claimed on your behalf by your charge point installer. You will typically be asked a few questions at the point of ordering. The grant is then deducted from the installation costs.
