Take advantage of subsidies for your charging station with Ireland’s funding programme
Electromobility helps reduce CO2. It’s good for the environment – and thanks to state funding, it’s good for your wallet too. You can apply for financial subsidies for your private charging station and installation. Find out how that works, here.
In Ireland, funding for your private charging station is available from the national “Electric Vehicle Home Charger Grant” programme. This allows you to save up to €600 on the purchase of a wall box including installation service.
Step 1 – Assessing requirements:
Funding is available for private individuals who have purchased an eligible electric vehicle after 01/01/2018 and have their own parking space that belongs to their home. Unfortunately, funding is not available for older electric vehicles or charging stations. Since June 22nd it is also available for company car users (electric passenger vehicles owned or leased for an employee). Further information about the eligibility you will find here.
Step 2 – Submitting an application:
Simply complete the application form and submit this via the online platform. You will then receive confirmation of the finance (in the form of a letter of offer) and you will have six months from this point to install your charging station.
Step 3 – Ordering a charging station & installation:
Order your charging station and your installation service. In order to qualify for the subsidy, please note that you must not purchase your charger before grant approval, indicated by the letter of offer start date (displayed at the top of this letter).
Step 4 – Collecting receipts:
Once the installation is complete, you must ask your electrician to provide you with a copy of “Certificate number 3” and the hardware inspection report. Take a photo of the installed charging station, your electric vehicle and the registration plate.
Step 5 – Requesting payment:
Complete the “Payment request form” together with your electrician and submit it together with the aforementioned documentation and the proof of payment for the charging station and installation. If you did not purchase your electric vehicle in Ireland, you will also have to attach the vehicle registration form.
