SEAI Electric Charger Grants - For Home

About the scheme

The government-funded Electric Vehicle Home Charger Grant assists homeowners and residents with the installation of an electric vehicle charge point on their property, providing a grant of up to €600 for the purchase and installation of a home charger unit. To receive payment, applicants must ensure that they use a Safe Electric Registered Electrical Contractor.

Homeowners are now eligible to apply for the grant regardless of whether they own an electric vehicle or not, and can use the charge point for visitor use or at rented accommodation.

As of September 2022, the EV Home Charger Grant Scheme will only support smart chargers registered on Triple E.

Funding for the EV Home Charger scheme is provided by Zero Emission Vehicles Ireland (ZEVI), which is located within the Department of Transport. The SEAI operates this grant scheme on behalf of ZEVI.
