EV Plans

If you have an electric vehicle you can avail of our Electric Vehicle (EV) Smart tariff. This Time-of-Use Tariff splits your usage into four time bands:

  • Day (8am to 11pm)
  • Night (11pm to 8am - excluding the EV band)
  • Peak electricity times (Monday to Friday 5pm to 7pm) 
  • EV (2am to 5am)

Each time period has its own price for electricity with a lower rate for the EV time band, meaning you can charge your car for less. Your smart meter data will be collected half-hourly. You can also access up to 24 months of your historic half-hourly consumption data via your online account.

On average, an EV owner charges their EV approximately 80% of the time at home which may add up to 3,000 kWh or more to your electricity bill. If you’re driving your EV 17,500 km per year and sign up to our Smart EV plan, it’ll cost you approximately €180 annually (excluding your household electricity bills), i.e. approximately €1 per 100kms.
