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 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.
The off-peak electricity rate of 8p per kWh on the GoElectric tariff, is at least half the price of the equivalent peak rate in all UK regions except London. In London the peak rate is 15.98p per kWh.
The off peak hours of 9pm - 7am are based on Grenwich Mean Time (GMT), during British Summer Time (BST) these hours revert to 10pm - 8am
8p per kWh of off-peak charging assumes customers are on the two rate meter configuration of the GoElectric tariff. Some meter types do not support EDF's multi-rate pricing and are therefore not eligible for the off-peak hours.
98 hours of off peak charging assumes customers are on the two rate meter configuration of the GoElectric tariff. Some meter types do not support EDF's multi rate pricing and are therefore not eligible for the off peak hours.
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 most cars. 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.
Off peak charging at night and all weekend, is available to customers who are eligible for the two rate meter configuration of the GoElectric tariff. Some meter types do not support EDF's multi rate pricing and are therefore not eligible for the off-peak hours.
