ADDITIONAL EV CHARGEPOINT FUNDING ANNOUNCED FOR APARTMENT BLOCK OWNERS

 We will deliver a reformed EVHS in 2022 to accelerate provision in apartment blocks and rental accommodation: 

  • We will continue supporting people living in flats (incl. leasehold flats) and rental accommodation (as we currently do under the EVHS): 
    • Up to £350 is available towards the cost of installing a chargepoint. 
    • It will be open to people living in either a flat or rental accommodation. 
    • Only one application will be permitted per person. 
    • The applicant must have a qualifying electric vehicle and their property must have dedicated off-street parking. 
  • We will allow non-resident building owners (incl. landlords and social housing providers) to apply for an EVHS grant: o Up to £350 will be available per socket towards the cost of a chargepoint installation, with a limit of 200 applications per year per applicant. 
    • The applicant must be a registered business or a public authority. If they are a private entity, they may be registered with Companies House, have a VAT registration, or be a private registered provider of social housing. 
    • The property must have associated private parking. There is no limit as to how many chargepoint sockets can be installed in each property (within the overall number of grants available). 
  • We will provide additional help for owners of apartment blocks to provision the building’s associated parking with chargepoints: 
    • Up to £30,000 will be available per building towards the cost of installing chargepoints, with a limit of 30 applications per year per applicant. 
    • The amount of grant available per application will depend on how many parking bays are being provisioned with either a chargepoint socket (up to £850 available per bay) or supporting infrastructure for a chargepoint to be installed at a later date (up to £500 available per bay). 
    • The applicant must be a registered business or a public authority. If they are a private entity, they may be registered with Companies House, have a VAT registration, or be a private registered provider of social housing. 
    • The property must have associated private parking. There is no limit as to how many chargepoint sockets can be installed in each property (within the overall limit of £30,000 per property). A minimum of five bays must be provisioned, at least one of which must have a working chargepoint. 
    • The allocation will be in addition to that available under the EVHS extension listed above. 
  • These reforms to the EVHS will be delivered through a new digital platform for OZEV chargepoint grants (available in early 2022).
