The grant provides electric vehicle (EV) drivers with support towards the costs of the purchase and installation of EV chargepoints at residential properties if they are also installing a cross-pavement charging solution. An electric vehicle (EV) chargepoint grant can help towards the cost of installing an electric vehicle chargepoint socket at your property.  You can get 75% off the cost to buy and install a socket, up to a maximum of £350.You can apply for this grant if you:

  • Own or rent a residential property in which you live

  • Have adequate on-street parking as defined by your local planning and highways authority

  • Have permission from your local planning and highways authority to install a cross-pavement charging solution between your home and the approved parking space

  • Will install a cross-pavement charging solution before having your chargepoint installed

  • Own an eligible vehicle


In order to be eligible for this grant you must have all relevant permissions from the local planning and relevant highways authority (where the highway is public land). There are some instances where private landowners control and manage the road and you may need to secure additional permissions in these instances.

The cross-pavement solution market is nascent and not all planning and highways authorities, devolved administrations and private landowners currently approve their installation. Some are still developing internal policies tailored to their local area and the required permissions may vary.

Ultimate discretion of your eligibility remains with your planning and highways authority (and where applicable the private landowner).

Adequate on-street parking

The property must have access to adequate on-street parking. This means that street parking is generally available outside or near your home, that the on-street parking provision is lawful and does not serve to prejudice the safety and free flow of vehicular and pedestrian traffic. This includes ensuring the road is sufficiently wide to allow easy passage of traffic. The final decision on whether your property has access to adequate on-street parking is with your planning and highways authority (or where applicable private landowners), who will determine whether a cross-pavement solution is suitable to serve your property.

This grant does not confer ownership over, exclusive use of, or reserved access to any on-street parking space outside of or near to your home and cannot therefore guarantee you a parking space. You therefore may not have constant access to the funded chargepoint. 

Vehicle Requirements

This grant is only for people who have vehicles on the list of OZEV-approved electric vehicles.

You can apply for this grant if you:

  • are the registered keeper of a new or second-hand eligible electric vehicle – the registered keeper is not necessarily the owner of a vehicle, but the person responsible for the car that pays for road tax and MOT.

  • are assigned a company car.

  • lease an eligible vehicle.

  • are named by your employer as the primary user of an eligible electric vehicle.

  • have ordered an eligible electric vehicle.

Vehicle Leases

If your vehicle lease is a bundle with a chargepoint, it must:

  • state that you own the chargepoint once payment is complete

  • itemise the cost of the chargepoint and installation, including VAT

  • ensure the chargepoint warranty meets the grant requirements

  • ensure the associated vehicle lease is for at least 6 months

You must show your installer proof that you own or lease your electric vehicle. 

Property Requirements

This grant is for domestic properties only. You must be a resident at the property.

The grant cannot be given if the installation of the chargepoints and / or infrastructure was a mandatory requirement.

Outside of the permissions set out above, you must also get all necessary third-party permissions, such as from a landlord or freeholder or managing agent of a block of flats, before you apply for the grant and install a chargepoint on the property.

To be eligible for the grant, you must arrange and agree with a relevant local authority for a company to install a cross-pavement charging solution before the installation of your chargepoint. You must not install cross-pavement solutions on the public road network yourself.

The property must be located in England, Wales, Scotland or Northern Ireland. If your property is in the Channel Islands or the Isle of Man, it is not eligible. 

Grant eligible installers and chargepoints

You must use eligible installers and chargepoint models:
