Work place ev chargers

The Workplace Charging Scheme (WCS), is a government grant which eligible businesses can claim to significantly reduce the cost of the installation of electric charging points.

Financial support – Up to £14,000.  The WCS can cover up to £350 per socket for eligible businesses to help with the cost of future-proofing your business and utilising green energy.

The OZEV scheme is a voucher based system covering up to a maximum of 20 double sockets across all business sites.  Open to businesses, charities and public sector organisations that meet the applicant and site eligibility criteria.

Covering up to 75% of the total costs to purchase and install EV chargepoints, capped at a maximum of:

  • Capped at £350 per socket
  • 40 sockets across all site per applicant (or 20 double socket chargepoints)

However you can only claim the WCS for new chargepoints installed after the date the voucher is issued,  a claim cannot take place retrospectively.

Following a successful application the applicant will be issued with a unique voucher code which will then need to be supplied to our CHARGE team in order for your order and installation to be placed at the reduced cost.

Eligibility: There are a number of requirements which need to be met in order for a successful application for the OZEV workplace charging scheme.  In theory any registered business, charity or public authority should be eligible to claim the grant providing there is dedicated off-street parking for staff.  Plus the following eligibility criteria:

  • Charge points must be for a business, charity or organisation – Not residential
  • Dedicated and sufficient off-street parking, which is only used by staff or your fleet.  This should also be either on-site or a reasonable distance from the place of work.
