Why Invest in Commercial EV Charge Points?
Investing in commercial EV charge points offers many benefits, both from an environmental standpoint and in terms of economic advantages and brand positioning.
Gain Environmental Benefits: You can significantly reduce your business’s carbon footprint by installing EV charge points. Perfect if you’re currently pursuing carbon-neutral status as a company.
Attract Customers: With the number of EV users rising, offering charging facilities can make your business more appealing to this eco-conscious demographic. It’s a clear signal of your commitment to eco-friendliness and sustainability.
Switch to an EV Fleet: Transitioning to an electric fleet is a forward-thinking move that offers long-term benefits. Beyond the obvious environmental advantages, you can also enjoy significant fuel savings, making it both an eco-friendly and economically sound decision.
Access Government Funding: The availability of government grants allows you to offset the costs of installing EV charging infrastructure. These initiatives make adopting green energy solutions more feasible for businesses like yours.
Enhance Brand Image: Incorporating EV charge points enhances your brand image, positioning your business as forward-thinking and environmentally responsible. In an age where consumers increasingly value sustainability and scrutinise green credentials, this can set you apart in the market.
EV Charge Point Funding: Workplace Charging Scheme and Beyond
Navigating the financial aspects of installing EV charge points can seem daunting, but several funding options are available to support businesses and commercial landlords.
OZEV Workplace Charging Scheme
The Office for Zero Emission Vehicles (OZEV) offers a Workplace Charging Scheme that can significantly offset the costs associated with purchasing and installing EV charge points. The grant covers up to 75% of the total costs (including VAT), capped at a maximum of £350 per socket.
Furthermore, there’s a provision for up to 40 sockets across all sites per applicant. This means, for instance, if you’re considering installations across 40 sites, you can obtain funding for one socket per site.
Other Available Commercial EV Grants
Beyond the Workplace Charging Scheme, there are additional grants available under the OZEV umbrella to further support businesses and landlords:
- Chargepoint and infrastructure grant for business staff and fleet car parks.
- Chargepoint and infrastructure grant for landlords, including car parks.
While the specifics of each grant can vary, the overarching goal is to make the transition to EV charging infrastructure more accessible and affordable for businesses and commercial entities like yours.
Choosing an OZEV-Approved Installer
To secure these grants, an OZEV-approved provider must carry out the installation. Partnering with an authorised installer also ensures compliance with grant requirements and guarantees a standard of quality and expertise in the installation process.
