The above figures are based on the installation of a 7.2KW EO Mini Pro but charging speeds can vary between different plug-in vehicles. Dependent on the vehicle, charging speed can range from 5-10 hours. For example, a 2018 Nissan Leaf with a 40kW battery, 150 mile range (real world range vs. published range of 169 miles) takes six hours for a full charge.
This tariff is powered by 100% renewable electricity. Electricity for our GoElectric tariff comes from renewable sources like wind, solar, Biomass, tidal, and hydroelectric.
To ensure that we can provide you with renewable electricity, we match 100% of your electricity consumption with UK sourced Renewables Energy Guarantees of Origin (REGOs) certificates, which are issued by the UK energy regulator OFGEM.
Other environmental benefits
Other suppliers as part of their tariffs include in the price of their tariffs the funding of other carbon reducing initiatives such as tree planting.
Whilst our Electric Vehicle Tariff doesn’t directly fund or offer any additional environmental benefits beyond being sourced from renewable generators, EDF Energy is the largest producer of low carbon energy in the UK and as part of the EDF Group is one of the largest the largest generators of renewable electricity in Europe.
If you enquire about an electric vehicle lease through EDF Energy and sign the T&Cs of your lease agreement with our partner DriveElectric by the 20th December 2019 and sign up to our GoElectric tariff, you will qualify for a free home charger and 10,000 driving miles at no added cost for the first year of your lease. To be eligible for the GoElectric tariff one of the key criteria is to be able to prove you are the registered keeper of an electric vehicle. You must claim this offer within three calendar months of signing your vehicle lease T&Cs, by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or asking DriveElectric to contact us to initiate this process on your behalf.
The free miles are calculated by monitoring the energy used when charging your vehicle on your EDF Energy installed home charger during the off-peak hours of your Go Electric tariff. A maximum of 2,857kWh will be credited back to your energy bill, equating to 10,000 miles and a monetary value of £228.56 including VAT (based on an average driving efficiency of 3.5 miles per kWh of charge). The off-peak hours of the GoElectric tariff are between 9pm and 7am on weekdays and all day on weekends. The timings are set to GMT times, which means when the clocks change to British Summer Time, your off-peak times will be 10pm until 8am on weekdays.
