On 1st April 2022, a significant change was made to the Government scheme for thos seeking to install EV chargers at home. The grants available to those living at freehold properties ended on 31st March 2022 but remained in place for owners of leasehold properties. This grant enables leaseholders to claim up to £350 towards the costs of their EV charger.

In addition to the continuation of this scheme, it is now possible to apply for a further £500 per car parking space towards the cost of “infrastructure” upgrades in recognition of the fact that very few leaseholders will be able to connect directly to their own electric meter and that improvements to electrical capacity will likley be required in most developments.
