The WCS (Workplace Charging Scheme) is a UK Government grant administered by OZEV (The Office for Zero Emission Vehicles). The scheme is designed to help with the upfront costs of installing new electric vehicle chargepoints. You can apply for the WCS if you are a business, charity or public sector organisation of any size.
The WCS saves you £350 for each chargepoint socket that you have installed. It operates as a voucher based system, meaning you benefit from an upfront cost reduction. OZEV limits the grant to a maximum of 40 sockets per organisation.
How do you apply?
You will need to complete an online application form and if successful, you will be given a voucher code. Contact us with this voucher code, and we do the rest.

This funding is intended to provide charging facilities in residential areas where there is a lack of off-street parking. For more information on eligibility, visit Road to Zero
How much funding is available?
OLEV has currently allocated £1.5m of funding and £4.5m for 18/19 and 19/20 for on-street residential projects, available on a first-come, first-serve basis.
Grants cover 75% of the cost of installing a chargepoint and dedicated parking bay (where applicable). Grant payment is made upon completion of the project.
How do I apply?
Contact us for further advice, or talk to organisations such as the Energy Saving Trust. You will need to complete an online application form to receive grant approval for your project, and you are reimbursed upon completion of the installation.
We’re OLEV-approved and can talk you through the grant process. We’ll also advise on the right chargepoints/charge payment schemes for your project.
