EDF launches its cheapest ever EV tariff
As the Government announces a ban on the sale of all petrol and diesel cars from 2030, EDF is making it easier - and cheaper - than ever for drivers to make the switch to an electric vehicle, with its cheapest ever EV tariff.
The zero carbon renewable GoElectric 35 tariff offers the cheapest off-peak rate on the market at just 4.5p/kWh - allowing customers to benefit from cheaper electricity for both their home and their EV during off-peak hours*. Perfect for those who choose to charge their vehicle little and often, the tariff would allow customers to fully charge a standard 40kW Nissan Leaf for just £1.80 - disproving public opinion that charging an electric vehicle costs more than a full tank of petrol**. In addition, drivers can even lease an electric vehicle through EDF from as little as £170 a month for a Skoda CITIGOe iV, or buy an EV smart home charger - making it even easier to make the switch to an EV.
Other zero carbon renewable tariffs available include the GoElectric single rate, which offers one fixed price day or night, so customers can charge their car at any time of day to best suit their lifestyle. Or the GoElectric 98 tariff, which offers 98 hours of off-peak*** electricity per week at just 9p/kWh per week, making it perfect for those with high consumption households and high mileage drivers with bigger batteries that need to recharge for longer periods.
Available now, the new range of EV tariffs offers a plan to suit every driver, making it easier and cheaper than ever to switch to an electric vehicle now.

About EDF in the UK
EDF is helping Britain achieve Net Zero by leading the transition to a cleaner, low emission electric future and tackling climate change. We are Britain’s biggest generator of zero carbon electricity, meeting around one-fifth of the country’s demand and supplying millions of customers with electricity and gas.
With around 5 million accounts, EDF is one of the largest suppliers to British homes and businesses and a leading supplier of innovative energy solutions that are helping businesses become more energy independent. All of our home and small business customers get energy tariffs backed by zero carbon electricity as standard.
We generate low carbon electricity from eight nuclear power stations, more than thirty onshore wind farms and two offshore wind farms, and operate one of Britain’s biggest battery storage units, one gas and one coal power station, thousands of EV charge-points, and combined heat and power plants. Wind, nuclear and solar all produce electricity that is zero carbon at the point of generation and have similar emissions over the build, run and retire lifecycles.
EDF is leading the UK's nuclear renaissance with the construction of a new nuclear power station at Hinkley Point C, and is leading the development of plans for a replica at Sizewell C in Suffolk. Hinkley Point C and Sizewell C will provide low carbon electricity to meet 14% of UK demand and power around 12 million homes.
EDF is one of the UK’s largest investors in renewables, with 1GW of renewable generation in operation and over 4GW in construction, planning and development across a range of technologies including onshore and offshore wind, solar and battery storage. We are constructing our largest offshore wind farm in Britain – the 450 MW Neart na Gaoithe project in Scotland which will be ready in 2023.
Our energy services business, Imtech, is one of the largest technical service providers in the UK and Ireland.
EDF is part of EDF Group, the world’s biggest electricity generator. In the UK we employ around 13,000 people.
