During the day many peoples cars sit motionless in their office car parks, until they go home. This is the perfect opportunity to plug-in and charge an electric car or hybrid vehicle. This makes driving an electric car to work a sensible option as the cost of travelling to work is a cost most people could do without. Travelling to work in an electric car can also contribute to improving air quality and your working environment.
Businesses across the country are aware of the benefits that electric cars offer. Many businesses are encouraging their workforce to drive electric or hybrid cars by installing workplace EV charge points, under the Workplace Chargepoint Scheme.
Workplace Charge Point Scheme
The Workplace Chargepoint Scheme is a government grant, provided by the Office For Low Emission Vehicles, for workplace EV chargers. The aim of the scheme is to support organisations who are thinking about installing EV charge points at their workplace for employees or customers. The scheme offers up to £300 off the cost of the purchase and installation of a workplace EV charge point. The grant can be claimed for up to 20 single socket EV chargers or 10 double socket EV charge points. The grant is available to businesses, charities and public authorities. To qualify for the grant you must have off-street parking.
The Workplace Chargepoint Scheme is a voucher based scheme, which you have to apply for online by completing an application form. If your application for the scheme is successful you will receive a voucher via email. You must then redeem the voucher within 4 months. The voucher can be redeemed by forwarding it on to your OLEV approved EV charge point installer.LEARN MORE
