British Gas has launched Green Drive Nov 2020, a new smart time-of-use tariff for electric vehicle users.
It offers cheaper electricity for seven hours, between 12.30am and 7.30am, for users to charge their car.
Electric vehicle drivers use up to 80% more electricity if they charge at home, according to British Gas. They can benefit from tariffs which pass on cheaper overnight wholesale electricity costs.
“Customers who choose this tariff will have peace of mind that if they charge their electric car overnight they can take advantage of lower prices. We want to offer our customers different types of tariffs that suit their individual needs and help them understand their energy usage.
“This is our first residential EV product. Over the coming months, we will launch further electric vehicle charging services to both residential and business customers,” said Peter Simon, customer propositions and product director at British Gas.
The smart tariff is dual fuel, fixed until November 2020 and has no exit fees.
