What are my options when it comes to Electric Vehicle Chargers?

There are essentially two types of Electric Vehicle Charger:

 

  1. A ‘Socketed/Untethered’ Charger Unit. These type of charger units do not have an attached lead. You use the lead which comes with your car to connect to the charger.
  2. A ‘Tethered’ Charger Unit. These type of charger units have a permanent lead attached which you plug into your electric vehicle.

 

The ‘Tethered’ Charger Units are either Type 1 or Type 2. The vast majority of new vehicles will require a Type 2 but some older vehicles may need a Type 1 (see vehicle manufacturers specification

EV Infrastructure Grant for Residential Car Parks​.

The government wants to help businesses and organisations who rent, lease or manage residential properties install electric vehicle (EV) chargepoints in their car parks. The Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) administers the grant on behalf of Office for Zero Emission Vehicles (OZEV).

To access the grant, a landlord must first register. Installers approved by OZEV such as Excel Electrical Services Ltd can then make claims for work completed on their behalf.

The EV infrastructure grant for residential car parks will provide money towards the infrastructure needed for chargepoints, as well as for installing the chargepoints themselves.

The grant means landlords do not have to install all the chargepoints the infrastructure allows for. It permits them to plan for the future by creating infrastructure now that can enable chargepoints to be installed later on.

There is a separate and different grant from the EV chargepoint grant for landlords, which does not help towards the cost of chargepoint infrastructure. Both grants may be used for the same site, but not the same chargepoints.
