The Electrical Vehicle Homecharge Scheme (EVHS) is a government scheme to make it easier and more affordable for people to switch to hybrid and electric vehicles.
The OLEV EVHS grant provides up to 75% off the cost of purchase and installation of an EV home charging point (capped to a maximum of £500). Each household can claim up to two charging points.
By applying for a grant for your home charging point, you can make your installation even more affordable!
For more information on the OLEV EVHS grant, take a look at our electric vehicle grants page. If you would like any help or advice with applying for a grant or your home electric car charging point installation, call our team today on 0800 051 9324.
We strongly recommend having a dedicated home EV charging point installed by an OLEV-approved installer, as opposed to using a 3-pin plug, because:
In order to charge an electric car at home, you can either have a dedicated EV charging point installed where you park your car or charge the vehicle using a standard 3-pin plug as you would with any domestic appliance.
How long it takes to charge an electric car depends largely on:
Charging using a 3-pin plug (as you would for most electric appliances at home) is much slower than having a dedicated home EV charger. Dedicated chargers also vary in terms of kilowatts and will as a result charge at different speeds.
Charging an electric car at home is very much similar to charging a mobile phone, with most owners finding that doing a full charge overnight is enough to cover journeys during the day. However, day charging may be needed as and when.
You should always check the individual manuals and guides for your own vehicle and charger to understand the charge time of your battery, vehicle and charger combo.
