What to do when there are (no) EV chargers installed in my car park?​

If there is no existing EV charging network in your car park, the company responsible for managing the complex will need to apply to SEAI for the apartment grant.

If an EV charging network is already present in your apartment building, contact your management company to request permission to join the local network. They will instruct you about what equipment and supplier must be used and how to set up an account to pay for the use of the system. When you have completed this step, apply for the home charger grant.​
