Home is the perfect place to recharge; for both you and your car

We’ve worked with Pod Point to create a simple guide to installing a charge point at home. Prepare to be surprised at how simple and accessible an at-home charging station can be.

Chart detailing the step-by-step installation process for home charge points

You’ll be guided through every step of the installation process. The diagram above shows you the simple steps on the way to getting your own charge point.

So you’ve purchased an electric vehicle and would like to install a charging station at home… First things first, ask your local Volkswagen retailer to put you in touch with Pod Point - they’re the best in the business when it comes to at-home charging and will help guide you through the entire process. And to help with the cost of installation, the Office for Low Emission Vehicles (OLEV) provide grant schemes for the installation of electric vehicle charging infrastructure around the country.

Once your grant’s been approved, Pod Point will schedule an installation at a time that suits you. They will give you a pre-installation consultation, fit your charge point and give you a demonstration to make sure you understand how it works. It’s as easy as that. And then you’re free to plug in your electric vehicle and hit the road!
Offers are provided by the Government and OLEV and were correct at time of publish.

Up to £500 off with an OLEV grant

With government grants here to help, it’s never been easier or more affordable to install a charging station at home.

Low Emission Vehicles

The Office for Low Emission Vehicles has introduced an excellent scheme that makes installing an at-home charging station a lot more affordable. You could receive a £500 grant as long as you meet the following criteria:

  • You purchased a fully electric/plug-in hybrid vehicle from the 1st September 2014.
  • You have off-street parking.
  • You use an OLEV-approved installer.

If you meet all three, then you’re good to go.
