Home EV charger grants now open to those without an electric car

A total of four new electric vehicle grant schemes and initiatives were launched recently by the Minister for Transport, Eamon Ryan.

Among them is an expansion to the home charger grant which will enable any tenants and homeowners to apply for a grant, whether they own an EV or not. This can also be used for visitor use or at rented accommodation.

He also announced a new apartment charging grant which will make it easier for people who live in apartments and multi-unit dwellings to charge an EV.

A new trial to promote and encourage the electrification of the commercial fleet was also announced, giving businesses the opportunity to test an EV free of charge for at least three months.

For sports clubs across the island of Ireland, there will be new funding to install a network of publicly accessible chargers for members and visitors.

“We are already seeing that there is an appetite for this switch with the increases in the purchase of electric or plug-in hybrid vehicles over the past year,” Minister Ryan said.

“I hope that the grants and initiatives we are launching will make it easier for people and businesses to continue to make the switch and then to be able to charge their cars, no matter where they live.”
