Public Sector Charging
When it comes to plug-in electric vehicles, charging at home usually occurs with off-street on driveways and garages. However, in many parts of the UK, especially in inner city and urban areas, convenient off-street parking is unavailable to many residents, making it extremely difficult to charge a vehicle overnight.
By installing charge points on-street, these residents can enjoy the convenience and value of charging their plug-in electric vehicles at home. As more residents use electric vehicles, communities will benefit from improved air quality and will lower their carbon footprint especially as more cities and towns are moving toward zero emissions zones.
On-Street Residential Chargepoint Scheme
. The On-Street Residential Chargepoint Scheme provides grant funding for Local Authorities towards the cost of buying and installing on-street residential EV Chargers for electric vehicles.
OLEV allocated £4.5m for 18/19 and 19/20 for on-street residential projects, which is available to Local Authorities for eligible projects, on a first come, first-served basis. The funding available is for 75% of the capital costs of procuring and installing the chargepoint and an associated dedicated parking bay, with OLEV providing up to £7,500 per chargepoint installation.
Full guidance, including application form for the On-Street Residential Chargepoint scheme can be found on the Office for Low Emissions’ Website
