Many people believe that grant funding has ended but the criteria has simply been tightened. There are still great opportunities for funding if your circumstances meet the criteria.

PWS are fully registered, trained and government approved installers of electric vehicle charging points. We are registered with both the OZEV home charge scheme (EVHS) and workplace charging scheme (WCS) to offer grant funding for domestic and commercial clients. In addition to OZEV grants the Scottish Energy Savings Trust (EST) offer additional grant funding if you fit the criteria.

EV is an exciting new technology that is gathering momentum as more people are converted by sleek vehicle design, high performance, high savings and environmental benefits.

OZEV EV Charge Point Grant & Energy Savings Trust Grants

We can secure you a £350 government grant via the OZEV (office for zero emission vehicles) scheme we are approved by. Further to that, we are one of only a small number of installers that are approved by the Scottish Energy Savings Trust to grant you a further £300 for your electric vehicle home charge point.

This is an exceptional offer of up to £650 toward your new home charging point. Grants are subject to terms & conditions and we provide a fantastic 3 year guarantee on all labour & materials.

Your new car doesn't need to be ready on your driveway to have a charger installed. Proof of an order form from a dealership and/or letter from your workplace if being used as a company car is enough to begin the process before delivery, ensuring you will be ready for charging when the car arrives. We make the process simple and guide you through the paperwork for the grant.

£350 OZEV Home Charging Grant - Eligibility Criteria:

  • Living in a flat with a dedicated parking space belonging to the property
  • Renting any kind of property with a dedicated off-street parking space belonging to the property
  • Self-employed persons with a business registered at their home address - can be sole trader or limited company

£300 EST Home Charging Grant - Eligibility Criteria:

  • Living in a rural area - your post code can be checked on the EST website link
  • Purchase of a used electric vehicle using the EST 2nd hand vehicle loan scheme

The Process

  1. Arrange a home visit to discuss and assess what charger suits your needs and we measure up to provide a quote for the install
  2. A written quote is provided and if happy to proceed, paperwork must be completed including copies of evidence such as order form or V5 vehicle ownership documents
  3. If eligible, the client then completes the energy savings trust grant application online, they usually reply within 3 weeks with a grant offer e-mail
  4. If you have an eligible business, the client completes the online OZEV form
  5. All e-mail with grant offers are forwarded to PWS and we can then arrange a date for the install if all paperwork and evidence has been received
  6. The install is completed and payment is made for the quoted price minus £350 which PWS claim back from OZEV later. EST payment is made then reimbursed from the savings trust.
  7. PWS will then e-mail you a receipt of payment and an electrical installation certificate
  8. The client submits the receipt of payment and electrical certificate to the energy savings trust and the £300 is paid to the client within 3 weeks
  9. No ongoing maintenance is required for the charger and labour and materials are covered by a 3 year warranty

EV Chargepoint Infrastructure Grants for Landlords

Designed for landlords and property factoring companies managing multiple properties. There are 2 grants you can get for installing charge points for electric vehicles at a property you own:

  • an electric vehicle chargepoint grant (EV chargepoint grant)
  • an electric vehicle infrastructure grant (EV infrastructure grant)

You can use an infrastructure grant and a chargepoint grant on the same property detailed below.

EV Chargepoint Grant for Multiple Sites

Each financial year, you can get up to:

  • 200 grants for residential properties
  • 100 grants for commercial properties

These can be across several properties and installations or for one property.

EV chargepoint grants have replaced the Electric Vehicle Homecharge Scheme (EVHS). If you applied to the EVHS and you’re waiting for a decision, you do not need to apply for an EV chargepoint grant.

EV Infrastructure grant

An EV infrastructure grant gives you money off the cost of wider building and installation work that’s needed to install multiple chargepoint sockets.

The work can be for sockets you want to install now and in the future. For example, an EV infrastructure grant can cover things like wiring and posts.

You can get up to £30,000 or 75% off the cost of the work. The amount depends on how many parking spaces the work covers. You can get up to 30 infrastructure grants each financial year. Each infrastructure grant must be used for a different property.


You can apply for the electric vehicle chargepoint (EV chargepoint) or infrastructure (EV infrastructure) grant if you’re a:

  • landlord with property to let
  • right to manage (RTM) company
  • residents' management company (RMC)
  • company or person owning the freehold of a property
  • company owning a building's common areas, including shareholders who are the leaseholders
  • property factor in Scotland
  • private registered provider of social housing (PRP)
  • public sector organisation - for example government departments, local councils, the armed forces or the NHS and emergency services
  • charity that manages or owns residential property

If you’re a company, charity or public sector organisation, you must be registered in the UK to apply.

OZEV Workplace Charging Scheme (WCS) Grants

WCS is available to businesses, charity and public sector organisations. Many businesses are recognising the need to supply staff and customers with chargers at their workplace and retail sites, demonstrating a commitment to protecting the environment and promoting brand values.

Statistics show that an employee would be 6 times more likely to own an electric vehicle if their workplace had charging facilities, combined with fantastic benefit in kind tax savings it will provide convenience and keep staff and clients happy.

The WCS scheme offers up to 40 sockets across one or multiple sites owned by the same client at £350 per socket, an impressive grant funding total of £14,000. The energy savings trust also offers further support to small and medium-sized enterprises in rural areas up to 50% and if your business is a third sector organisation up to 75%.

Bespoke solutions can include key fob access for authorised users and back office third party software for site owners to manage and monitor their EV charging infrastructure and finances. PWS provide full civil works and electrical package for a single point of contact and turn key solution to your EV charging project.

  5. When approved a copy of the OZEV voucher and EST approval is sent to PWS
  6. Installation arranged, completed and invoiced minus the OZEV grant amount.
  7. PWS submit a grant claim for the voucher amount on the OZEV online portal
  8. Client receives an e-mail to confirm the installation is complete
