Ordinance (2017: 1318) on grants to private persons for the installation of charging points for electric vehicles

Last updated: 4 November 2019

Grants may only be given to private individuals and if the charging point:

   1. is installed on a property that the applicant for the grant owns or holds with the right of use;

   2. is installed after January 1, 2018;

   3. is installed by an electrical installation company or an electrician as referred to in the Electricity Safety Act (2016: 732); and

   4. is prepared for electricity measurement and charging of electricity cost and equipped with at least the outlets or connectors for electric vehicles of type 2 described in the standard EN 62196-2 or of type Combo 2 described in the standard EN 62196-3.

Eligible costs are the material and labor costs needed to install the charging point, such as costs for a charging box and the drawing of electricity.

Labor costs are eligible only if they relate to work performed by someone who is approved for F-tax or, in the case of a foreign company, has a certificate or other document that shows that the company undergoes corresponding checks in respect of taxes and fees in its homeland.

Costs for which tax deductions for labor costs have been credited or other public support have been given are not eligible.

Grants may be given as a lump sum with a maximum of 50 per cent of the eligible costs, but a maximum of SEK 10,000 per property.

Application for a grant must be made after the charging point has been installed, but no later than six months after the installation work has been completed.
