An OLEV grant is a grant provided by the government, specifically the Office for Low Emissions Vehicles (OLEV), to assist in the installation of electric vehicle charging points. There are currently two schemes running: the Electric Vehicle Homecharge Scheme (EVHS) and the Workplace Charging Scheme (WCS).

Both grants are limited to 75% off purchase and installation costs up to a maximum of £350. The EVHS scheme enables the purchaser to claim one charge point per eligible vehicle, and up to two eligible vehicles per household. The WCS scheme offers businesses, charities and local authorities the opportunity to claim £350 per socket, up to a maximum of 40 sockets.

Amongst other specifications, in order to qualify for an OLEV grant for the home or workplace, the charge point must be installed by an approved OLEV installer. Axis has been approved by the Office for Low Emissions Vehicles as an approved installer and can use our experience to access the two OLEV grants available.
