Grant for Workplace EV charging points

Your business could receive up to £14,000 of government funding via the Workplace Charging Scheme (WCS) to help cover the costs of EV installation. Each business can apply for up to 40 charging points. The grant from the Government Office for Low Emission Vehicles (OLEV) covers up to £350 per socket of purchasing and installation costs.

This grant can go a long way to helping your business cover the costs, but you have to make sure you’re eligible. To start with, you’ll need to find an installation provider. We can help you there.

How do workplace charging points work for employees?

You can highly customise your EV charging stations to fit your business needs, giving employees a discount on the amount they pay or fully covering the cost of EVs for company vehicles. Many installers provide an online account system to track the EV usage of company vehicles connected to your workplace system.

You can set up different rates for customers versus employees. If you’d prefer, you could keep your workplace charging stations completely employees only by making the charging point accessible only with keys or contactless cards.
