If you need electric vehicle chargers for your Orkney business, ReFLEX can help.
We can install business smart chargers for off-road parking and help you apply for grants to help cover the cost, whether you’re getting electric vehicles from us or have them already. Through the mobile app, smart chargers enable you to monitor and schedule charging in a way that is convenient for your business. They also connect to ReFLEX Orkney’s FlexiGrid platform which enables us to gain insights into how chargers interact with the local electricity grid and how they may provide support to the network in the future.
Please note the Energy Savings Trust (EST) is currently not accepting new applications for its commercial charger grant scheme. On 2nd April we were informed that EST was immediately closing applications for its business charge point funding grant scheme for the financial year 2021-2022. They may announce new funding over the next few weeks for this financial year effective April 2022, and we will update this page and keep customers informed if we have a further update from EST.
If you are in the process of getting a charger through ReFLEX and you already have a grant offer letter from EST, then this offer will still be honoured by EST.
If you are considering getting an EV charger please do contact us. We can begin the process of planning a charger install with you while we wait for EST to announce what is happening with their funding. Regardless of the EST offer, we are still offering the ReFLEX contribution of £150 towards the cost of a charger and many businesses remain eligible for OZEV funding (link below).
For your business. Installation and grid connection if off-street parking is available.
For the commute. At-home installations for staff with a company/salary sacrifice EV and off-street parking.
Planning and grid connection. We can discuss your grid application or planning permission requirements.
Grant help. We can guide you through smart charger grants for office premises. Small accommodation businesses (such as B&B’s and campsites) may qualify for a grant through The Office of Zero Emission Vehicles from the beginning of April 2022. OZEV also offers up to £15,000 per building of additional help for small and medium sized enterprises to provide staff or fleet carparks with EV chargepoints.
Eligibility. Businesses must have a premises in Orkney and/or undertake the majority of their business activities here to be eligible for our products and services. ReFLEX Orkney will, however, consider each business on a case by case basis.
