Entire OZEV information can be accessed in full on the official GOV website here.

What is the OZEV grant?
The Electric Vehicle Homecharge Scheme (EVHS) is a grant that provides a 75% contribution to the cost of one chargepoint and its installation. A grant cap is set at £350 (including VAT) per installation. The £350 home charge point grant is going to run until 31st March 2022.
Can I apply for 2 chargepoints?
Yes. A person may apply for 2 chargepoints at the same property if they have 2 qualifying vehicles.
Am I eligible to claim the grant if I want to replace an old chargepoint?
If a customer is moving to a new house with an old chargepoint and they wish to replace it, they would be eligible for the grant (providing that customer has not previously claimed against the scheme and all other requirements are met).
Vehicle requirements
The following customers are eligible to access the grant:

– Individuals who become registered keepers of a new or second-hand eligible electric vehicle – note that the registered keeper is not necessarily the owner of a vehicle, but the person responsible for the car that pays for road tax and MOT
– Individuals who are assigned a company car for at least 6 months
– Individuals who lease an eligible vehicle for at least 6 months
– Individuals who lease an eligible electric vehicle through a salary sacrifice scheme
– Individuals who are named, by their employer, as the primary user of an eligible electric vehicle for at least 6 months
– Individuals who have ordered an eligible electric vehicle
Eligible vehicles list
To be eligible for the grant, the vehicle must be listed on the EVHS eligible vehicles list at the time of installation. The list includes battery-powered and plug-in electric cars, vans, taxis and motorcycles.
Property requirements
– The customer must be resident at the property. This will be checked via vehicle registration details
– Any necessary third-party permissions (such as from a freeholder or managing agent of a block of flats) must be obtained by the customer before an installation occurs
– There is no requirement to inform OZEV if you are moving a chargepoint to a new house or if you move house
Dedicated off-street parking
The grant is not available where the customer does not own the parking or have sole legal right to it. This includes:

– Rented spaces
– Spaces shared with other properties
– Spaces that provide access routes to other properties
What if I don’t have off-street parking?
If you do not have off-street parking, OZEV have a grant scheme for on-street residential charging that can be taken up by your local authority.
Installer requirements
The grant can only be claimed by EVHS-approved installers (on behalf of their customers). Details of authorised installers may be found on the EVHS authorised installers list.
Does Hypervolt have an authorised installer network?
Yes. We have our own fast-growing network of installers approved by Hypervolt. We cover entire England, Wales, Northern Ireland and Scotland. For more information on our installer network, please visit this link here.
Equipment requirements
All chargepoints must be on the EVHS approved chargepoint model list at the time of installation.
It is important to ensure that the chargepoint model name is exactly the same as one stated on the eligible list. Claims will be rejected if the model claimed is not on the list.
If a model is not listed, it is not eligible for the grant.
Is Hypervolt Home 2.0 EVHS approved?
Yes. Hypervolt Home 2.0 is EVHS approved and can be found on the model list here.
Do I have to apply for the grant on my own?
A customer needs to ask an EVHS-approved installer to apply for the grant on their behalf. Customers cannot apply directly for an EVHS grant. Installers are required to process claims as this ensures that the requirements of the scheme are fulfilled and minimises the risk of incorrectly completed claim forms.
Information required by the installer when claiming the grant
The form requires:

– The customers’ personal details
– Evidence of an eligible electric vehicle
– A declaration by the customer that they and their property meet the requirements of the scheme
– The details of the chargepoint
– The costs of the installation
– Consent from the customer for the installer to claim on their behalf
