Grants for Electric Vehicle Charging Points

To charge your new Electric Vehicle, you may wish to install a Charge Point at your home or small business. Typically these will be 7kW  ‘fast’ chargers. To do this you will need to appoint a Charge Point Installer to carry out the work. You may also be eligible for funding through the Electric Vehicle Homecharge Scheme. Details of Charge Point Installers and grants are available on the government website.

Notifying UK Power Networks of an Electric Vehicle Charge Point installation 

If you are installing a Charge Point at an existing property it may be as simple as your Charge Point Installer notifying us that they have installed a charger.

Your Charge Point Installer will need to make a number of checks on your electrical installation. Once the appropriate checks have been made and if your electricity supply is adequate to accommodate your new charger, your Charge Point Installer can now complete the installation. They then have 30 days to notify us of the new installation. To make it easier they can even notify us of multiple installations in a single spreadsheet. 

If your main electricity fuse needs to be checked or upgraded, your installer will help you get in contact with us to arrange a free site visit. Read our help and advice for more information. If you need a fuse upgrade to 100amps, apply here.
