Installing an EV Charger – Apply for the Grant!

The increase in the number of electric vehicles is a welcome trend for Ireland. The government is also keen to move towards a greener Ireland where people are choosing an electric vehicle and contributing towards addressing the looming threats of climate change and global warming.

Along with the increase in number of electric vehicles, the demand for EV chargers is also increasing. An EV charger can either be installed at home or in a commercial centre where people can use it on payment basis. Both of these have their own sets of advantages and challenges. Chargers of various types and makes are available so people can make an informed choice based on various factors such as costing or budget, the electrical landscape of the building/house where one seeks to install an EV charger, etc.

However, since the uptake of EVs and chargers is still relatively new, getting a car as well as a charger can become an expensive proposition for a customer. Importantly, installing an EV charger requires an expert who will ensure that the EV charger is correctly put and does not pose any short- or long-term risks.

Since the costs are high, it is important that in the long run the benefits outweigh the initial high costs. Hence, to keep the minds of the citizens at ease and to encourage more people to buy electric vehicles and install more chargers, the Government of Ireland provides a grant €600 towards the purchase and installation of an electric vehicle home charger unit. More information about the scheme, eligibility criteria and application process is available here.
