Good Energy becomes latest energy supplier to introduce innovative time of use tariff that promises to slash EV recharging costs. Good Energy has today announced the launch of a new tariff that offers electric vehicle (EV) drivers the opportunity to power their home, or charge their car, for free. The tariff includes ‘flash’ windows based on periods when Britain is generating an abundance of solar and wind power. During these periods the utility will alert drivers to a four-hour window when charging their vehicle through Good Energy’s 100 per cent renewables tariff will come at no extra cost. The company said the “Zap Flash” tariff – which has been developed in partnership with EV mapping service Zap-Map – would provide customers with a cheaper and greener way to use electricity, while also helping to shift power demand to periods when renewables output is high so as to reduce overall grid balancing costs.
