Having a vehicle charging point at work is incredibly convenient. It's a great resource for your staff, your fleet, your visitors and your customers. It demonstrates your company's commitment to making a difference.
And Octopus Energy Services can get you and your business plugged in and ready to go. We're installing charge points into office locations, car parks, and anywhere where electric vehicles can be parked, across the country.

Guiding you through the Workplace Charging Scheme
The government's Workplace Charging Scheme is a voucher-based scheme designed to provide eligible applicants with support towards the upfront costs of the purchase and installation of EV charging points. The scheme enables support of up to 75% of the purchase and installation costs, up to a maximum of £350 for each socket, for a a maximum of 40 chargers across all sites for each applicant.
The application form can be accessed here.
The voucher will be valid for 6 months from the date of issue.
