Electricity for our GoElectric tariff is powered by 100% renewable electricity 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
Some suppliers include other carbon reducing initiatives such as tree planting in the price of their tariffs. Whilst our GoElectric tariff doesn’t directly fund or offer any additional environmental benefits beyond being sourced from renewable generators, EDF is the UK’s largest producer of low carbon energy and, as part of EDF Group, is one of 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.
