The Workplace Charging Scheme (WCS) is a voucher-based scheme that provides support towards the up-front costs of the purchase and installation of electric vehicle chargepoints.
The contribution is limited to the 75% of purchase and installation costs, up to a maximum of £350 for each socket, up to a
maximum of 20 across all sites for each business.
Full details of the scheme are available on the OLEV website here
Do I Qualify For a WCS Grant?
WCS is available to any business, charity or public authority, however there are few conditions which need to be met:
- The charge points are only for use by your staff or fleet vehicles, not for customer use
- You must have sufficient off-street parking and the parking facilities must be clearly associated with your premises
- You do not need to have electric vehicles as part of your existing fleet, but you will need to show how you intend to encourage the uptake of electric vehicles.
- You must have the charging station installed by an OLEV-approved workplace charging station installer.
