Renewables tariff for EV owners launched by E.ON

 Renewables tariff for EV owners launched by E.ON

E.ON has launched a new tariff for electric and hybrid vehicle owners which uses energy purchased from 100 per cent renewable electricity and green gas.

E.ON Fixed 1 Year Electric Vehicle is a dual rate tariff which offers customers access to a competitive day rate, and a night rate priced 33 per cent below the day rate for use when many electric and hybrid car owners will choose to charge their vehicle.

The tariff which also matches 100 per cent of both the electricity and gas used with renewable energy guarantees of origin (REGOs) and green gas certificates (GCC), offers savings of £261 a year when compared with an average of all dual fuel standard variable tariffs offered by the larger suppliers and £173 a year, when compared with an average of dual fuel Economy 7 tariffs offered by the larger suppliers.

This new E.ON tariff is designed to complement the increasing number of full electric and hybrid vehicle owners who are now charging their vehicles at home and who, as a result, will have a higher than average electricity consumption.

Chris Lovatt, managing director of residential at E.ON, said: “For many electric or hybrid car owners, choosing the right energy tariff may be the last piece of the jigsaw in helping them lower fuel emissions and energy costs.

“At E.ON we’re focused on providing sustainable solutions for our customers’ homes and with the increase of electric cars on our roads we’re pleased to be able to offer a tariff which gives our customers the flexibility to access cheaper electricity rates backed by renewable sources to charge their vehicles, while helping them save on costs.”

The tariff is available to existing customers who own an electric or hybrid vehicle. An Economy 7 programmed smart meter is also required to access the tariff, which E.ON will fit free of charge.
