According to a new announcement from the Government, EV drivers charging an electric vehicle (EV) at home is set to ‘get even easier’ thanks to new funding.

The £381 million Local Electric Vehicle (LEVI) fund will provide to councils across the UK, where they can choose where it is best to install EV chargepoints for EV drivers.

Following the funding announcement, 44 councils have currently taken advantage of £185 million to give more places to charge EVs.

Technology and Decarbonisation Minister, Anthony Browne, said: “This government has a plan to help speed up the installation of EV chargepoints, which we’re getting on and delivering.

“This dedicated funding to local councils is part of our plan to ensure people can switch from a petrol or diesel car to an EV when they choose to do so.”

Minister for Affordability and Skills Amanda Solloway continued: “This funding will make it easier for people to switch to electric vehicles.

“By bolstering our public charging network, we are not only making electric vehicles more accessible, but also driving the transition towards a cleaner, greener future.”
