How Do I Qualify for the OLEV Grant?

If you want to check whether your electric vehicle meets the OLEV grant eligibility and criteria, our friendly team at Elmtronics are here to help. The OLEV (Office for Low Emission Vehicles) grant is a government grant available to put towards the cost of installation of an electric car charger.

To qualify for the OLEV grant for home electric vehicle charging, you must have a smart home charging point, use an OLEV-approved charging point installer and have private off-street parking.

To qualify for the OLEV workplace charging scheme, you are required to use an OLEV-approved workplace charging point installer. You also must be a business, public authority or charity with off-street parking available to staff.
