EV Charging

Electric cars are having the most profound impact on driving since the switch from horse to car over 100-years ago. All major manufacturers are bringing out plug-in cars, with Tesla leading the way, as the benefits of lower driving costs, zero road tax, no congestion or emissions tax and lower servicing costs.

Electric cars not only have lower servicing costs, but the cost of fuel is dramatically reduced. A standard Tesla Model 3 50kWh battery with 220 miles of range can be charged from flat at a cost of only £7.50 when buying power at 15p.

If you opt for an off-peak tariff such as the Octopus Go tariff its possible to buy your power at 5p between 12.30am and 4.30am, reducing the cost to fill the battery to just £2.50.

If you have solar panels you can opt for a charging point that will charge your car when there is surplus power from your panels that is going back to the grid which reduces your cost of charge, and carbon footprint, even further.
