*Please note that the value of the EVHS grant was reduced from £500 to £350 in the March 2020 Budget. As this change came at short notice a transition period was initially permitted, to give customers who had applied before 12 March 2020 the chance to still receive the £500 EVHS grant, if their installation was completed by 31 May 2020. However, due to the coronavirus pandemic and subsquent lockdown restrictions, this transition period has now been extended until 5 April 2021.

**Documentation includes:
1) Signed customer declaration form;
2) Photographic evidence (chargepoint unit with serial number visible + showing off-street parking with chargepoint visible);
3) Proof of purchase for customers' EV.
