A recent Government forecast predicts that there are currently approximately 200,000 plug-in cars in the UK and by 2021 there will be 2 million! As you can see by the graph below, they may have underestimated!

All these cars will need charging, either in the home, workplace, the gym, hospitals, schools, churches, mosques or public car parks; basically, everywhere electric vehicles are likely to go.

We have set up a dedicated team to supply and install these EV charge points. We can guide you through the whole procedure starting with free, no-obligation, advice right through to installation and commissioning and not forgetting the especially important aftersales service!

    EV CHARGEPOINTS GRANTS AND HOW THEY WORK

    To encourage use of electric vehicles there are generous grants available from the government.

    The government originally set up a dedicated department, known as OLEV, which is the “Office for Low Emission Vehicles” who forecast and monitor everything to do with low emission vehicles, including electric vehicles.

    The “Office for Low Emission Vehicles” (or “OLEV”) has since been renamed and it will, from now on be known as the “Office for Zero Emission Vehicles” (or “OZEV”) to align with the government’s net-zero ambitions and is responsible for overseeing the transition to zero-emission cars and vans.  It is expected that while the industry adjusts to the change, the names “OLEV” and “OZEV” will be used interchangeably for a time.

    The UK government has reduced the plug-in car grant for electric cars. In an announcement published on 18th March, the Department for Transport (DfT) and the Office for Zero Emission Vehicles (OZEV) confirmed that the grant scheme for electric cars, vans and trucks has been updated.

    Effective immediately, the government will provide grants of up to £2,500 – down from £3,000 – for electric vehicles on cars priced under £35,000 (previously less than £50,000).

    The plug-in van grant has also changed. It previously covered up to 20% of the van’s cost to a maximum of £8,000. Now, plug-in van grants cover 35% of the purchase price for small vans, up to a maximum of £3,000. They will also pay for 35% of the purchase price for large vans, up to a maximum of £6,000.

    UK drivers are already making the switch to electric vehicles. As of the end of February 2021, there were more than 455,000 plug-in vehicles registered in the UK – with approximately 215,000 battery-electric vehicles (BEV) and 240,000 plug-in hybrids (PHEV). 2020 saw the biggest annual increase in number of registrations, with more than 175,000 electric vehicles registered, showing a growth of 66% on 2019.

     

    For Your Home:

    The Electric Vehicle Homecharge Scheme (EVHS) is a grant that provides a 75% contribution to the cost of one chargepoint and its installation. A grant cap is set at £350 (including VAT) per installation. The main requirement is that a person owns, leases, or has ordered a qualifying vehicle and has dedicated off-street parking at their property. A person may apply for 2 chargepoints at the same property if they have 2 qualifying vehicles.

    For The Workplace:

    The Workplace Charging Scheme (WCS) is a Government scheme for electric vehicles offered by the Office for Low Emission (OLEV).
    The WCS reduces the purchase and installation cost of a new workplace charging station (single socket) by 75% (capped at £350 per socket)
    A single business can claim for up to a maximum of 20 ChargePoint’s (e.g. 40 single sockets or 20 double socket ChargePoint’s)

     

     

    As an OZEV approved installer, we can claim these grants on your behalf. We can take you through the whole process, from grant application to supplying, fitting and commissioning your EV ChargePoint/s.

    We offer a free energy survey with any commercial EV charge point installation. This is for two reasons, one so we can make sure your electrical installation has the capacity, and two, we very often find energy savings solutions that may enable you to Charge Your EV For Free!  For example, if we can find 7kw of energy savings for you then that cancels out the cost of charging an electric vehicle.

    The main areas we concentrate on are Gloucestershire, Swindon, Bristol, Worcestershire and Herefordshire but we can travel nationwide!
