We are regulated by the Office for Low Emission Vehicles and therefore have to provide them with the below information to allow us to reclaim the grant funding for your installation:

  • Image of your fuse board(s) with the lid open so we can see your fuses
  • Image of your main electric meter and supply
  • Proof that you have ordered, own or are the primary user for the vehicle
  • Your MPAN number found on your energy bill

Who are OLEV?

The Office for Low Emission Vehicles (OLEV) have been appointed by the UK Government to manage and distribute Electric Vehicle Homecharge Scheme (EVHS) funding for electric car charge points.

What is Electric Vehicle Homecharge Scheme (EVHS)

The Electric Vehicle Homecharge Scheme (EVHS) allows EV and plug-in hybrid drivers to receive ‘no fuss’ grant funding towards a home electric car charger provided you:

  • Meet the criteria for funding
  • Use an OLEV approved installer

To save you the time and trouble of having to apply and reclaim your funding, it is the OLEV approved installers responsibility to subsidise your installation, and we reclaim this under the Electric Vehicle Homecharge Scheme (EVHS).

This means we can install car charging points and you don’t have to complete piles of paperwork and wait for your money to be refunded.
