Installing a home charger

Thinking of having an EV charge point installed at your home or workplace? We’ve teamed up with British Gas to make installation as quick and easy as possible.


The Office for Zero Emissions Vehicles (OZEV) is the government team that’s leading the switch to electric vehicles. As well as giving grants towards the cost of vehicles, OZEV also offers grants to help with installing a charger.  

For home chargers, the Electric Vehicle Homecharge Scheme (EVHS) grant gives you up to £350 towards your charger. For your workplace, the Workplace Charger Scheme (WCS) grants give businesses £350 per charger, up to a maximum of £14,000.

Once you book your installation, British Gas will take care of all the OZEV paperwork for you – and include the grant automatically within the overall price you pay.

Before we can get started, we'll need to know your property has the basics needed for an installation. Not every property is suitable for an EV charger, and some older properties might need a bit of extra electrical work before installation can begin. If you need help, don’t worry – experts from British Gas will be able to advise you free of charge.

Off-street parking
To have your own charge point installed, you must have a private off-street parking space, such as a driveway or garage.

Freeholder permission
Live in a block of flats or a rented property? You’ll need permission from the freeholder before we can install your charge point.

Electrical safety check
If your property was built before 2008, we’ll arrange a free video call with a British Gas engineer to make sure your electrics are up to standard.


Getting a charge point installed is easy with British Gas and Toyota. The whole process usually takes 3-8 weeks and you’ll have expert support at every stage.

Step 1

Place your order
Once you place your order, British Gas will get in touch to ask some simple questions about your home – and see if you’re eligible for a government OZEV grant. If you are, British Gas will sort it all out for you.

Step 2

Virtual home check
Next, we might need to arrange a ‘Virtual home check’. This is a 30 minute free video call with a British Gas engineer to check a few things around your home, finalise your charge point install design, and answer any questions you might have.

Step 3

Charge point approval
You might need approval from your local Distribution Network Operator to connect your charger to the local grid. If you do need this approval, British Gas will take care of the whole application process for you and the DNO will follow up with you directly if they need more information.

Step 4

The installation is carried out by a British Gas engineer. It usually takes 2-4 hours and we’ll need you to be at the property for that time. After that, you’ll be ready to start charging your EV at home straight away.
