What is the Governments Workplace Grant Scheme?
The Workplace Charging Scheme is a government scheme for electric vehicles, offered by the Office for Low Emission Vehicles.
Since July 2018, this scheme provides £500 to £10,000 off the installation of an electric vehicle charging unit.
You can make a claim for up to 20 charge points on the Workplace Charge Scheme, but you can’t back-claim for old charge stations.
How Do I Qualify?
The Workplace Charging Scheme is available to any business, charity or public authority.
You must have off-street parking and clarify a need for the charging station for the business.
You must also have the charging station installed by an OLEV-approved installer.
How does the Workplace Charging Scheme work?
The Workplace Charging Scheme is a voucher based system.
If your application is successful, you’ll be emailed a voucher code which you can then present to your OLEV-approved installer to arrange an installation date.
The voucher code is valid for four months.
Why install at work?
Reports show 30% of electric vehicle drivers do their charging at the workplace, meaning they charge while they work.
You can save nearly £1,000 a year in fuel costs by converting your businesses transport to an electric set up.
You can offer electric vehicle charging to your visitors, boosting your company’s image as a modern and innovative entity.
A green fleet can also help reduce CO2 emissions and reach sustainability goals, raising your business profile as an environmentally friendly organisation.
