What is the OZEV Grant?

The OZEV EVHS (electric vehicle homecharge scheme), was introduced by the government to support the uptake of low emission vehicles. The office for low emission vehicles has been set up with the specific target of decreasing emissions. In May 2020, this department announced £2 billion towards schemes including electric vehicle chargers. With the rising number of EV drivers, this government grant is designed to lower the cost of purchasing EV cars and EV chargers, in turn helping the UK to reduce emissions.

Currently, the OZEV grant offers £350 towards the cost of installing a home charging  point for your electric car.

OZEV Grant 2022 Changes

The prices you see on the Rightcharge comparison system take the £350 OZEV Homecharge grant into account. So what is the grant and how do I claim one?

In summary:

One of the most common questions is of course 'Can I get an OZEV grant?'

To be eligible for the OZEV Homecharge grant you must:

Once you request a quote through Rightcharge, your point installer will be able to confirm your eligibility.

Which charge points can I get the OZEV grant for?

As of 1st April 2020 the grant only applies to smart home charge points. The charger needs to be capable of sending and receiving information. This is OZEV's list of all approved charge points.

The prices shown on the Rightcharge comparison system take into account whether or not the charge point is OZEV approved. The majority of charge points shown in the comparison are OZEV-approved but the odd charge point that is not approved (like the Tesla Wall Charger) can be a lot more expensive to install.

What is the difference between the OZEV & OLEV Grants?

In January 2021 the OLEV grant was renamed to OZEV (Office for Zero Emissions Vehicles). The grant and eligibility criteria have not changed but as the department have been renamed so has the grant. If your electric vehicle was eligible for the grant before then it will still qualify for the OZEV Grant.

Can I get the OZEV grant for my workplace?

The OZEV grant is designed specifically for home charging points at non-commercial properties (your home!).

There is also a workplace charging scheme (ECS) that works slightly differently for business. If you are looking for more information about charging point installation for your business you can check out our handy guide below or apply directly via the government website
