EDF Launch Exclusive EV Tariff for Pod Point Homecharge Customers

We’re thrilled to announce that EDF are launching a new, limited edition version of their GoElectric EV Tariff, with lower prices exclusively for Pod Point customers.

Drivers: thinking about the global energy crisis and how it’s going to affect your energy bills?

This exclusive tariff is cheaper than EDF’s existing tariffs.

Although we can’t fix the crisis, with help from our friends at EDF, you can charge your electric vehicle (EV) from 4.5p per kWh, and avoid price inflation from the October 2022 price cap increase by locking into a dual-fuel tariff for 2 years.

It’s no secret that EVs have many benefits over equivalent petrol or diesel cars, and one of the biggest reasons to make the switch to EVs is their lower total cost of ownership.

For starters, EV drivetrains are much simpler than internal combustion engines (ICEs). With fewer moving parts, it costs a lot less in general to maintain and service an electric car.

But even more significant is the cost of ‘fueling’ an EV, which is where the real savings can be found, compared with petrol or diesel engines. When you use an energy tariff designed for EV drivers, you can save on electricity costs by scheduling your EV to charge during off-peak hours using our Charge Scheduling feature in the Pod Point App.

Introducing the Tariff

With exclusive pricing for Pod Point customers for a limited time only, EDF’s new GoElectric Exclusive tariff can reduce your charging costs even more:

  • Cheaper overnight charging at just 4.5p per kWh1
  • Charge your EV for less than £5 on a 7kW home charger while you sleep2
  • 100% zero carbon renewable electricity3

Better still, this exclusive tariff is cheaper than EDF’s existing tariffs, so you’ll benefit from their best prices. With the energy price cap due to rise again in October, now is a great time to consider fixing your rates. Plus, the tariff applies to all energy used at home, not just EV charging.

Interested? Learn more about the exclusive tariff on EDF’s website.

Please note:

  • The financial benefits of this tariff depend on a number of variables, including when your household energy usage occurs, when you charge your car, changes to wholesale energy prices and any future price cap changes.
  • There is an exit fee of £150 for electric only, and £300 for electric and gas.
  • The features of this tariff, its availability and any prices or costs displayed were correct at the time of writing but may change in the future.

The Benefits of Switching Now

By fixing your rates with GoElectric now, you can protect yourself from an up to £953 future increase in your energy bill (based on the expected energy price cap rises in October).4

Tariff Requirements

To maximise the benefits from this tariff, use a Pod Point home charger that can pair with the Pod Point App, e.g. the Solo or Solo 3. With this, you’ll be able to use the Charge Scheduling feature to schedule your charging to take place overnight when the cheaper rate kicks in.

You’ll also need a smart meter installed and you can book this via EDF if you haven’t already.

How Charge Scheduling works

Charge Scheduling is a feature in the Pod Point App that lets you set a customised charging schedule for your EV.

  • 1 Correct at time of publication: 29/06/2022
  • 2 EV charging based on using a 7kW home charger and EDF’s GoElectric Exclusive 35 tariff at 4.5p/Kwh off-peak
  • 3 DF’s EV tariffs are backed with 100% zero carbon renewable electricity. Electricity for EDF’s GoElectric Exclusive tariff comes from renewable sources like wind, solar, biomass, tidal and hydroelectric. At the end of each fuel mix reporting year, EDF will make sure they’ve purchased enough renewable electricity from EDF owned renewable generation to match the total volume of electricity supplied to all their customers on the GoElectric Exclusive tariff. A fuel mix reporting year begins on 1 April and ends on 31 March the following year. UK Fuel Mix disclosure information published by the Government (BEIS), recognises electricity from wind, solar and nuclear fuel produces zero carbon dioxide emissions at the point of generation. See EDF’s tariff table for more information.
  • 4 Average bill price of £2,545 for GoElectric 35 versus the expected flat rate Standard (Variable) tariff October ‘price cap’ yearly bill of £3,498. Average bill costs based on assumed EV and household combined usage of 4,900 kWh electricity and 12,000 kWh gas yearly.
