Electric car sales have increased from 3,500 in 2013 to 219,000 UK registered cars in June 2019. This exponential growth is set to continue. The owners of these vehicles require electric vehicle charging points at their home, business or at other locations.
IDDEA are accredited under the UK government’s Office for Low Emissions Vehicle scheme (OLEV) to install charge points under the Electric Vehicle Homecharge Scheme and the Workplace Charging Scheme. This means we are eligible to submit grant claims under both schemes for our customers.
Electric Vehicle Homecharge Scheme
Electric plug-in vehicle owners will carry out most of their charging at home. To increase the uptake of electric vehicles (EV), OLEV operates the Electric Vehicle Homecharge Scheme which makes charge points more accessible and affordable by providing a grant to offset the cost of installing an EV charging unit at your home. If you are the registered keeper, lessee or have primary use of an eligible EV and have off street parking, you could receive up to 75% (capped at £500, inc. VAT) off the total costs of the charge point and installation costs.
IDDEA are approved Electric Vehicle Homecharge Scheme installers and can claim grant funding on your behalf.
Workplace Charging Scheme
Similarly, OLEV also offer a scheme to encourage work places to install EV charge points. WCS is a voucher-based scheme designed to provide eligible applicants with support towards the upfront costs of the purchase and installation of EV chargepoints. The contribution is limited to £500 for each socket up to a maximum of 20 across all sites for each application.
IDDEA are OLEV-authorised WCS installers and can redeem WCS vouchers.
