EV Charger Installation Scotland
Fully Trained , Approved EV Charger Installers
With more and more people buying electric cars for personal use there has been a big increase in demand for home EV charger installation. EV home chargers are not only a convenient, cost-effective and safe way to charge your car at home they also significantly speed up charging time. Charging points are usually installed on an exterior wall of your house or garage and are typically fitted in just one day.
At Capital City Electrical Services we have a team of fully trained and approved EV charger installers. We are ready and waiting to install the very latest domestic EV charging points in homes in Edinburgh and across the whole of Scotland.
Accredited EV Charger Installers
Capital City Electrical EV installers are accredited by OZEV (the Office for Zero Emission Vehicles).
This means that we can install home EV charging points under the Electric Vehicle Homecharge Scheme (EVHS).
We are approved installers for Anderson EV, Ohm, My Energi, Rolec, Eassee, Project EV and many more.

EV Charger Installation Grants
EVHS and Energy Saving Trust grants
The EVHS scheme was created to encourage people to switch to electric cars. A grant was offered to domestic customers to help with the cost of EV charger installation.
The grant currently provides a 75% contribution towards the cost of installing one chargepoint (up to a maximum of £350, including VAT). It is available for most models of electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles.
Changes to EVHS Rules April 2022
From April 2022 EVHS grants will no longer be available to homeowners who live in properties such as bungalows, detached, semi-detached or terraced housing. For these types of properties, the last date for installation of an EV charge point under EVHS will be 31st March 2022.
EVHS will remain open for homeowners who live in flats and people in rental accommodation (flats and single-use properties).
The Energy Savings Trust (EST) also offers funding via the Domestic Charge Point Funding scheme. They will provide up to £250 further funding, with an additional £100 available for those in the most remote parts of Scotland.
We will arrange a site visit to survey your property and electrical installation. We will then let you know what work would be involved in an EV charge point installation and give you a quote for the cost. We can also talk you through the terms and conditions of the current grants available to find out if you qualify. We will then help you fill in an application to get the funding process for your new EV chargepoint up and running as quickly as possible.
