THE CLIFFNOTES VERSION

Doing your part for the environment can be a costly endeavour, which is why the UK government created the OLEV grant to help you on your way by subsidising up to 75% (capped at £500) of the charger and installation fee.

The grant is available for most plug-in hybrid and electric cars.

Claiming the grant is easy. We take of everything for you at macXcharging.
