In this article, we explore the latest announcement from the Energy Saving Trust around the rural domestic chargepoint funding initiative and the expansion of its eligibility criteria.
This exciting development means that people residing in postcodes previously categorised under Groups 3 and 4 are now eligible to apply for the £400 funding to support the purchasing and installation of home EV Chargers. This postcode expansion promises to provide easier access to EV chargers for these communities, and we hope it encourages more households to join the transition to electric vehicles.
For those who haven’t heard of this initiative before, the rural domestic chargepoint funding initiative is based on a first-come, first-served basis. We urge eligible homeowners to apply for this funding as soon as possible to alleviate some of the finances needed to install EV chargers at your home.
To be eligible for the funding, it is mandatory that the installation of your EV charger is completed by an OZEV and Energy Savings Trust approved installer. ORKA are proud holders of this accreditation, which ensures that our customers benefit from the highest quality installation and expertise.
