Good Energy Group, a leading UK-based renewable energy supplier and energy services provider has introduced a new fixed tariff to support electric vehicle (EV) drivers in charging their vehicles both at home and on the go.

Founded in 1999, Good Energy has been at the forefront of the renewable energy revolution. The company supplies electricity from a mix of solar, wind, hydro, and biogas sources, ensuring that all its energy offerings are entirely renewable. 

Alongside electricity, Good Energy offers carbon-neutral gas, promotes energy efficiency, and supports customers in generating renewable power through solar panels. 

The commitment by other parties to sustainability and ethical practices is evident in their efforts to transform the energy market, reduce carbon emissions, and foster a greener future.

New Smart EV Fixed Tariff

The new tariff, the Good Energy Smart EV Fixed (July 25), was launched on July 1. It offers a market-leading rate of just 7.4p per kWh for overnight charging during a five-hour window from 12 am to 5 am. It means that EV drivers can charge their vehicles with 100% renewable electricity at home at a highly competitive rate. For example, a standard-range Tesla Model Y can be charged from empty to 100% for as little as £4.50. The tariff will be available until July 31, 2025, providing a long-term, cost-effective solution for EV drivers.

In addition to the competitive rate, the tariff includes a free premium subscription to Zapmap, a comprehensive digital platform dedicated to EV drivers in the UK.

Zapmap helps users search, plan, and pay for public charging, enhancing the overall EV charging experience.
