Electric Vehicle Tariff launched by Good Energy

Case Studies

A new fixed electric vehicle tariff has been launched by Good Energy, the 100% renewable electricity supplier and energy services provider, to help drivers charge their vehicles for less.

The ‘Good Energy Smart EV Fixed‘ tariff offers a market-leading rate of just 7.4p per kWh for vehicles charged between 12am and 5am, meaning customers can charge a standard range Tesla Model Y from empty to 100% for as little as £4.50. The tariff also comes with a free premium subscription to Zapmap, the UK’s leading electric vehicle charging app with over a million downloads, tracking more than 60,000 charge points with more than 70% providing live data for costs and availability.

Nigel Pocklington, chief executive officer of Good Energy and chair of Zapmap said:

“As a major investor in the UK’s go-to EV charging app, a supplier of truly renewable electricity, and an EV charger installer, Good Energy is uniquely positioned to help EV drivers.

“This new tariff, together with the excellent additional features from Zapmap, is designed to make it as cost-effective and straightforward as possible to drive an electric vehicle. We have gone the extra mile to provide customers with a competitive rate for truly renewable electricity, sourced from our community of over 2,500 generators, as well as a real added benefit to help with charging on the go in Zapmap Premium.”

Melanie Shufflebotham, cofounder and chief operating officer of Zapmap said:

“Zapmap aims to make it easy to search, plan and pay for EV charging when drivers are on the go. So it’s great to be working with our longterm partners in Good Energy to package that service with a tariff that helps them charge economically at home too.”

Meanwhile a recent survey by Zapmap found that electric vehicle drivers are more likely to have renewable energy technologies installed in their homes.

Of the 4,000 drivers asked; 29% have had solar panels installed in their home, seven times the national average of 4.1%. A whopping 72% have smart meters in their properties, higher than the 50% average, while 7% already heat their homes via an air or ground source heat pump.
