Frequently asked questions for our EV Driver 3 tariff 

What is Good Energy’s Electric Vehicle (EV Driver 3) tariff?

We love electric vehicles and we realised that we tend to do most of our charging at home, not on the road. Because of this we created a tariff designed to make charging your EV more affordable. If you’re anything like us then this tariff has been designed with you in mind. This is as good for the environment as it is your pocket, saving you £ 80* a year when compared to our Standard Variable Tariff.

How did we work this out?

First, we looked at our customers who are EV drivers and we noticed they used more energy than average. Actually, the average EV household used around 6,500 units of electricity, compared to the UK average of 3,100 units.

The maths behind the tariff

* Save £80 when you switch – quite simply, this is worked out on the usage of 6,500 units of electricity compared to our Standard Variable Tariff. We compared against our Standard Variable Tariff for electricity only, on profile 1 monthly direct debit.

How is Good Energy’s tariff for EV drivers different to your standard tariff?

Our EV Driver 3 tariff offers a reduced unit rate and higher standing rate compared to our standard variable tariff. It’s designed for customers that do the majority of their EV charging at home and typically consume more electricity.

Will you offer this tariff to customers each year?

As long as you continue to drive an electric vehicle and comply with the EV Driver 3 tariff Terms and Conditions you are eligible for the EV Driver 3 tariff until the tariff end date. We do retain the right to close this tariff in the future. For more information please see our Terms and Conditions.
