The current Electric Vehicle Home Charge Scheme (EVHS) provides a 75% contribution towards the purchase and installation of an electric car home charger. This is capped at £350, but the government has recently announced changes to the EVHS grant. Owners of detached, semi-detached, terraced houses and bungalows will no longer be eligible from March 31, 2022. It can however still be claimed by people who rent their homes or those who live in flats.
The last claim for an installation that the government will accept under the scheme will be April 30, 2022. Also, the last date for an installation accepted under the scheme will be March 31, 2022.
So, who will be eligible for the EVHS grant after March 2022?
Changes to the EVHS grant after March 2022 mean that only certain individuals/businesses will be eligible for the grant, these include:
- People living in flats (incl. leasehold flats) and rental accommodation
- Non-resident building owners (incl. landlords and social housing providers)
- Owners of apartment blocks will be able to provide the building’s parking with charge points using a grant of up to £30,000 per building towards the cost of installing charge points (limited to 30 applications per year, per applicant)
