Commercial EV funding

The Workplace Charging Scheme (WCS) is a Government-backed project that provides eligible businesses with vouchers to help offset the upfront costs of installing electric vehicle (EV) charge points. The WCS is open to all businesses, charities, and public sector organisations that meet the applicant and site eligibility criteria and can be used to provide charge points for staff, fleets, guests, or visitors.

How much is a commercial EV grant worth?

Because the Government is pushing its agenda of no new combustion engine cars being sold in the UK after 2030, the grant to install electric vehicle charging points is quite lucrative.

It’ll cover up to 75% of the purchase and installation costs of new EV charge points, inclusive of VAT. However, this is capped at a maximum of £350 per socket and 40 sockets overall. It’s worth noting here that the 40 sockets can also be spread across multiple sites, which is great if you have a nationwide franchise or commercial sites in different parts of the UK.

However, this ends in March 2024, so you’d better be fast if you want to take advantage of the generous scheme!

Are you eligible for a commercial EV grant?

To qualify for the Office for Zero Emission Vehicles (OZEV) Grant, you must meet the following criteria:

  • You must be a registered business, charity, or Government organisation
  • Declare a need for requiring EV car charge points
  • You must have designated staff/fleet off-street parking available
  • The business must be registered in England, Scotland, Wales, or Northern Ireland
  • You must use an OZEV-approved home charging point installer, like Grant Store
  • You must own the premises or have your landlord’s permission to install EV charge points on the premises

If you meet all of the above criteria, then you should be eligible to claim the commercial EV installation grant.

How the commercial EV grant works

This Government incentive is designed to lower carbon emissions across the country by helping businesses provide an EV charging point for their employees for as little as £149 incl. VAT. In just five easy steps, you could get up to 75% off the cost of new EV charging points installed on your properties.

  • The first step is to apply for WCS vouchers. Don’t worry, this is really easy to do, and if you get stuck, our expert staff are on hand to help.
  • After applying for a WCS voucher (or vouchers), successful applicants will receive a unique identification voucher code by email. You’d then give Grant Store this code, as we are an Office for Zero Emission Vehicles-authorised (OZEV) WCS installer.
  • We’ll then install the charge points and claim the grant from OZEV on your behalf. The installation must be completed and the voucher claimed within 6 months of the voucher’s issue date. Claims against expired vouchers will not be paid.
  • We won’t charge you for the grant in advance of the payment being made by OZEV. The cost of the grant will be discounted from the final invoice after OZEV reimburses us.
  • If you apply for less than 40 sockets, you can submit additional applications in the future until you reach that limit.

Can companies get grants for electric cars?

There are a few different schemes available. The most commonly-known one was the Plug-in Car Grant (PICG). This scheme offered a discount of up to £3,000 towards the purchase of a new electric car but was discontinued in 2022.

There are also a number of other schemes available, such as the Electric Vehicle Homecharge Scheme (EVHS) and the On-Street Residential Chargepoint Scheme (ORCS). These are aimed at individuals and households, but businesses may be able to apply for them if they meet the eligibility criteria.

To find out more about the different grants available, you can visit the Office for Zero Emission Vehicles (OZEV) website.
