So how do I apply for an OZEV Workplace Charging Scheme grant?

Our team at GlenFarrow are able to assist you through the grant application process right from the beginning, including all admin work. However, if you choose to complete the application alone follow the steps below:

  1. Your workplace needs to register its intention to have an EV charging point installed. You can do this by visiting this link: https://www.apply-workplace-chargepoint-grant.service.gov.uk/
  2. When your application has been sent off, OZEV will review it and contact you via email on whether you have been successful or if they require more information.
  3. If your application has been successful, you will be issued with a voucher/vouchers to the value of the application.
  4. Once you have received your voucher, get in touch with us via the contact details below to book your installation. Please note: Vouchers are valid for 6 months from the date of issue (180 days). The installation MUST be completed within this time period.
  5. GlenFarrow will firstly provide you with a full site survey and then our team will commence with the installation.
  6. Once the EV charger installation is completed, you will hand over the voucher to us and we will then claim the value back from OZEV.
