Good Energy to launch time-of-use tariff for EV drivers
Clean power company Good Energy is trialling a new electric vehicle tariff, developed to offer a lower price and longer off-peak charging window.
Planned to launch for all customers in early 2021, the new ‘time-of-use’ tariff will be positioned as the firm’s cheaper specialist EV offering and will allow customers to use genuine clean energy, sourced from Good Energy’s +1,600 renewable generators, and also to support them using power to charge their vehicles at times of day when the whole grid is cleaner.
It will also, according to Good Energy, start earlier in the evening than other tariffs on the market.
The announcement comes after Good Energy increased its investment in Zap-Map, taking a majority stake earlier this year.
Good Energy is also entering a number of strategic partnerships which will see the company accelerate further on EVs into 2021. This include with home charging solutions specialist Mina, with the two firms teaming up to explore energy service solutions for customers adopting EVs. Good Energy is also working with Horizon Energy Infrastructure, which will provide Good Energy business customers with asset-backed funding for their charging infrastructure, as part of Good Energy’s One Point EV hardware solution for businesses.
And Good Energy has also teamed up with Select Car Leasing, which is appointing Good Energy as its green energy partner, providing Select customers with smart, 100% renewable electricity tariffs.
Juliet Davenport, CEO and founder of Good Energy and chairman of Zap-Map, said: “The electrification of transport sits at the heart of the green revolution we are now witnessing. Put simply; any policy commitment towards achieving net zero cannot be delivered without fundamentally reshaping transport. The EV market in the UK, already growing fast, will have to accelerate even faster.
“Good Energy is primed to position itself at the heart of this revolution. Zap-Map was an initial critical step for us. The strategic partnerships we have announced today, alongside the launch of our new EV tariff are the next steps. We will be helping to drive a cleaner greener future for transport.”
Further details of Good Energy’s new EV time of use tariff will be announced at launch in the new year, but customers can register their interest here.
