Home & Workplace Vehicle Charging
Paramount Electrical Services have been providing expert electrical solutions to Glasgow and surrounding areas for decades. As the future of motoring is here, with mainstream brands now all having at least one electric model on offer, and a wide range of hybrid models – we strive to continually develop and enhance our services. With this enthusiasm, we are now fully registered, trained and approved installers of electric vehicle charging points.
With the Scottish Government Target to eliminate combustion fuel vehicles by 2032, the demand for electrical charging points continues to increase. We take care of the entire process start to finish making our customers experience hassle-free! We also work alongside the OLEV and Scottish Energy Savings Trust to secure up to £800 funding towards your installation on your behave, for no extra cost.
The Future Of Motoring
The aim of the Scottish Governments Climate Plan is to phase out all diesel and petrol vehicles by 2032, 8 years ahead of the rest of the United Kingdoms target of 2040.
Up to £800 towards your installation
Paramount can secure you a £500 government grant via the OLEV scheme, and an additional up to £300 from the Scottish Energy Savings Trust
Simple, Streamlined Process
Paramount take care of everything from start to finish - we visit your home or workplace and survey your property and electrical installation to verify it can supply a 16A or 32A mode 3 charging point. We inform your supplier of the installation taking place and advise them to upgrade your supply if required.
Installations typically take no more than a day
OLEV Homecharge Scheme
Claim up to £500 towards the installation of a home charging station for your electric vehicle.
To help electric vehicle owners offset some of the upfront cost, the Government is running the Homecharge Scheme. If you're the registered keeper, lessee or primary user of an eligible vehicle, you can apply for 75% of the cost of your ChargePoint and its installation.
Scottish Energy Saving Trust
Energy Saving Trust will provide up to £300 further funding on top of the funding provided by OLEV.
The typical cost for a home charge point and installation is approximately £1000. As part of its Electric Vehicle Homecharge scheme, OLEV currently offers applicants £500 towards this cost.
For the costs above what OLEV cover, the Energy Saving Trust will reimburse up to £300.
OLEV Workplace Scheme
Provide charging facilities to employees with all-electric or hybrid vehicles, exempt from Tax and NI.
Where an employer provides facilities for charging their employees’ all-electric or plug-in hybrid vehicles at the workplace, this is currently treated as a taxable benefit in kind subject to income tax for employees and employer Class 1A National Insurance contributions.
