OUR SOFTWARE SOLUTION: KEY FEATURES FOR APARTMENT BUILDING CHARGING
EV INFRASTRUCTURE GRANT
As a landlord or managing agent, you could claim up to a total of £850 per charging station with the EV infrastructure grant for residential car parks - administered by the Office for Zero Emission Vehicles (OZEV).
The infrastructure element of the grant contributes up to £500 for each parking space that is "wired up" and enables a chargepoint to be added to the space quickly and easily.
The other £350 is available for the purchase and installation of the charger itself. You can claim both elements of the grant independently or in conjunction with each other.
At ChargeGuru, we help you understand exactly what grants are available to you in order to design & install the perfect charging solution. We'll then help you claim any OZEV grants which apply to your installation. That's EV charging, made simple.

HOW DOES IT WORK?
If you live in a flat or apartment, you will need permission from the landlord(s) and the managing agent to install an EV charger. Once permission is granted, one of our Guru’s will help find the perfect solution for you. Have a look at the options below.
Request permission from the managing agent and freeholder(s) to install an individual charging station in your parking space. Check out our useful “email to managing agent” template to get you started.
Your charging station will most likely need to be connected to the communal electricity board. Our software enables the managing agent to know how much electricity you’ve used so they can invoice you directly for the cost.
Advantages: "Minimalist" solution, suitable for small buildings with indoor parking or scenarios where the managing agent or freeholder(s) aren’t ready to deploy a more scalable charging solution.
Install one or more communal charging stations in shared parking spaces for use by anyone living in the apartment building(s).
With this option, residents can charge their EV’s by using ChargeGuru’s app or an RFID card. This allows us to charge the residents directly, then allowing us to reimburse the managing agent. Alternatively, we can provide the information for the managing agent to invoice residents directly.
Advantages: Great for buildings with outdoor parking where installing a charger in each parking space would be complex. It allows all residents to switch to an electric vehicle as soon as they wish.
ChargeGuru's ZEPLUG solution offers a fully funded and scalable EV charging solution for landlords, property managers & residents alike.
ChargeGuru designs, installs and pays for the shared electrical infrastructure through the ZEPLUG solution. Once a resident decides to ‘go electric’ - ChargeGuru will install an individual charger in the resident’s dedicated parking space.
Advantages: This solution offers zero upfront cost the property manager or owner. It also means that only residents who have an electric vehicle pay for any of the installation or ongoing costs. Is suitable for large apartment buildings with indoor parking, where the number of electric vehicles is likely to quickly increase.
Depending on your requirements and the scenario at your building(s), ChargeGuru can offer one or a mix of these options to provide the perfect charging solution for your Apartment.
