The Workplace Charging Scheme (WCS)

The Workplace Charging Scheme, also known as WCS, allows UK businesses to apply for a grant for up to a maximum of 40 charging points, a saving of £14,000, with each charging unit being capped at £350.

Businesses considering applying for the WCS grant are not required to have a fleet of electric vehicles, but they are required to provide evidence for the need for electric vehicle charging points.

By installing an EV charging point at your business you’re taking steps to reduce your carbon footprint, future-proofing your business for the rise in electric vehicles and helping your employees save money on tax when they opt for a zero-emission vehicle!
