Plugged-in Households Grant Fund

The Plugged-in Households Grant Fund (PiHHs Grant Fund) is an opportunity for not-for-profit housing associations and co-operatives in Scotland to apply for funding to procure the services of a zero emission car club vehicle, for use by their tenants and the wider local community.

More than 280,000 homes in Scotland are part of housing associations and co-operatives. Often tenants of these developments don’t have access to private, off-street parking spaces, which means they can’t participate in the Zero Emission Vehicle (ZEV) market unless they charge solely off public charge points.

Eligible housing associations and co-operatives in Scotland can bid for a share of the £700,000 of grant funding available from Energy Saving Trust to procure the services of a zero emission car club service for their tenants and the wider local community. A car club provides shared access to one or more vehicles as an alternative to private car ownership.

This provides:
* affordable access to zero-emission vehicles to households across Scotland, including those without allocated off-street parking.
* a viable alternative to owning a vehicle for people who only need one occasionally.
* access to alternative transport options for people who don’t have their own vehicle.
* an opportunity to experience electric vehicles regardless of income or location.

The deadline for applications is 4pm on Wednesday 19 December 2018
