Detail

To help private plug-in vehicle owners offset some of the upfront cost of the purchase and installation of a dedicated domestic recharging unit, the government has launched the domestic chargepoint grant. Homeowners may receive up to 75% (capped at £1,000, including VAT) off the total capital costs of the chargepoint plus associated installation costs. This document sets out the information that domestic chargepoint providers and installers need in order to install such chargepoints and the process by which the grant is claimed on behalf of the homeowner. Please note that due its popularity the funds allocated to this scheme have been exhausted. We are no longer accepting applications for accreditation. To accommodate existing installation orders, only installations that happen on or before the 31 August 2014 will receive a grant under this scheme. A successor scheme will begin on the 1 September 2014. Details of this new scheme will be published shortly.
