Applegarth Engineering install and maintain EV charge points for the public sector across the UK. We are approved by the OLEV (Office For Low Emission Vehicles) to install EV charge points under the On-Street Residential Chargepoint Scheme. We have recently provided EV Charger installations for local authorities, councils, universities and colleges.
What Is The On-Street Residential Chargepoint Scheme?
The On-Street Residential Chargepoint Scheme provides grant funding to local authorities, towards the cost of installing on-street residential EV charge points for electric vehicle drivers in their area. The aim of the grant is to provide EV charging infrastructure to electric car drivers who don’t have access to off-street parking. The scheme provides up to £7,500 towards an EV charge point.
Who Is Eligible For The On-Street Residential Chargepoint Scheme?
The On-Street Residential Chargepoint Scheme is available to local authorities who meet the following criteria:
- Have the support of the relevant highways authority.
- Can demonstrate that there is existing demand for on-street residential EV charge points in the area or explain whey they would like to install an EV charge point on that street.
- Plan to locate EV charge points in residential areas that lack off-street parking. These EV Charge points must have pay-as-you-go access and be able to provide data to the Office For Low Emission Vehicles for three years.
How Does The On-Street Residential Chargepoint Scheme Work?
The On-Street Residential Chargepoint Scheme gives local authorities access to the £2.5 million grant. This can be used to partially fund the procurement and installation of on-street EV Charger infrastructure. The scheme is managed and supported by the Energy Saving Trust. Residents are able to submit a request with their local council for an on-street EV Charger. Funding is available for 75% of the cost of installation and a parking bay. The remaining 25% must be funded by the local authority.
