EV Home Charger Grant
A government funded support scheme to assist homeowners install an electric vehicle charge point on their property. The scheme provides a grant up to the value of €600 towards the purchase and installation of a home charger unit. The applicant must be the owner of an eligible new or second-hand electric vehicle (EV).
Transport Minister Eamon Ryan has warmly welcomed a forthcoming SEAI public consultation on EV charging infrastructure for apartments and strongly urges residents and management companies to take part and make their views known.
It is estimated that 80% of annual EV charging is done at a driver’s home location. Therefore, widespread availability of residential charging at all locations is therefore a critical requirement to achieve Ireland’s 2030 electric vehicle target. Firstly, support will be provided to the Owners' Management Companies (OMCs) to install the electrical network and any shared chargers. Secondly, each resident will be provided with support to install a charge point to connect to the local Apartment/Multi-Unit Development (MUD) charging network.
