Electric Vehicle Chargepoint and Infrastructure Grants for Landlords

A complete guide about what the OZEV EV Chargepoint and infrastructure grant is, for homeowners, landlords and commercial property owners.

EV Chargepoint Grant

An EV chargepoint grant gives you money off the cost of installing an electric vehicle chargepoint socket.

You can get either £350 or 75% off the cost to buy and install a socket, whichever amount is lower.

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.

You cannot apply if:

  • you live in the property
  • you only rent your property out as a holiday rental
  • you rent the parking spaces from someone else

Your Property

Your property must be in the UK. You cannot apply for this grant if you live in the Channel Islands or Isle of Man.

You can apply for:

  • flats and houses
  • apartment blocks
  • commercial properties

If you’re letting out a commercial property, the chargepoint can only be used by the building’s staff and vehicles. It cannot be used by members of the public.


Your Parking Space

Each parking space you’re applying to install a chargepoint at must be:

  • off-street, private and clearly defined – it does not have to be part of the property
  • accessible to your tenant
  • owned by you, or be one you have the legal right to – you may need to provide Land Registry title deeds as evidence

Some installations may need cables or parts to be placed across private or public land. You must have proof of all legal rights and permissions before work begins.

Your installer will check that the electric vehicle can charge safely in the parking space.


Extra Requirements for an EV Infrastructure Grant

If you’re applying for an EV infrastructure grant, you must:

  • be using it for a property with multiple homes – for example an apartment block, or estate with buildings that share a car park
  • be installing at least one chargepoint socket as part of the work
  • carry out work on at least 5 parking spaces, so they either have chargepoint sockets or are ready to have them installed in the future
