Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Where is the grant scheme available?

The grant scheme is available in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland, but is not available in the Channel Islands, Isle of Man or crown dependencies.

Q: Can I complete an installation and then make an application for a voucher?

No. The date of installation must not precede the date the voucher is issued.

Q: I have applied to the grant scheme in the past and successfully had chargepoints installed. Can I apply for the grant again?

Yes. You can now apply to have additional vouchers until you exceed the limit of 20 chargepoint sockets per company, as long as you still meet eligibility requirements.

Q: What shall I do in order to get a voucher to install a chargepoint?

You will need to complete the application process online, available here, providing information about your business, the desired number of sockets you would like to install, and de minimis declaration (if applies). Previous paper forms are not accepted and the online portal is the only way through which you are able to send your application. If you are eligible, you will be issued a voucher code on screen and receive a confirmation email. Please note that the generation of the voucher may take up to 5 working days.

Q: Is there a limit on the number of chargepoints I can claim for?

Yes. The WCS grant is limited to the installation of 20 chargepoints sockets for each applicant. You can deploy them in how many sites you want, which means that if you would like to have them on 40 sites, you will have 1 socket available per site. If you apply for less than 40 sockets, you are allowed to submit additional applications in the future until reaching that limit.
