It’s time to up your green credentials by becoming a sustainable housing association or business owner. And when you choose Saltire to support your net-zero goals, you know you’re working with one of Scotland’s leading electric vehicle installation companies.
Electric vehicles are one of the key changes people and organisations can make to play their part in building a cleaner, greener society. Not only is it better for the environment, it’s better for your pocket too. Electric vehicles are far cheaper to run, especially if you charge your vehicle overnight.
Electric Vehicle Grant Funding
The Scottish Government is hoping to create change on a large scale, incentivising landlords, housing associations, apartment block owners, and residents in flats to make the switch to an electric vehicle.
- Residents in flats and rental properties will be eligible for £350 grant funding towards the purchase and installation of their charging point. To be eligible for the grant funding, residents must have off-street parking and an eligible EV/PHEV
- Landlords and housing associations are also eligible for OZEV grant funding; £350 per socket (units that are equipped with two sockets will be eligible for £700 grant funding per unit). A maximum of 200 grant funding applications can be made per year. Although there are no limits on the number of sockets per property, the charging units must be installed across private parking spaces.
- Apartment block owners can benefit from £30,000 grant funding per building. Grant funding will be capped at £500 per parking bay to wire them for future infrastructure, or £850 per parking bay for a working electric vehicle charging point. Apartment blocks must have 5 electric vehicle charging bays with one installed charging point.
