EV chargepoint and infrastructure grants for landlords

There are 2 grants you can get for installing chargepoints for electric vehicles at a property you own: an electric vehicle chargepoint grant (EV chargepoint grant) and an electric vehicle infrastructure grant (EV infrastructure grant).

An EV chargepoint grant gives you money off the cost of installing an electric vehicle chargepoint socket. You can get either £350 or 75% off the cost to buy and install a socket, whichever amount is lower. You can receive up to 200 grants a year for residential properties and a further 100 for commercial properties.

An EV infrastructure grant gives you money off the cost of wider building and installation work that’s needed to install multiple chargepoint sockets. The work can be for sockets you want to install now and in the future. For example, an EV infrastructure grant can cover things like wiring and posts. You can get up to £30,000 or 75% off the cost of the work. The amount depends on how many parking spaces the work covers. You can receive up to 30 grants a year for installing infrastructure in residential car parks. Lean more
