Good Energy is to launch a new time of use tariff for electric vehicle (EV) drivers, having also signed three new e-mobility partnerships.
The tariff – which has been developed using market research from Zap-Map, which Good Energy owns a 50.1% stake in – is to launch in early 2021. The supplier claims it will offer a lower price and longer off-peak charging window, starting earlier in the evening than other tariffs on the market.
EV tariffs are becoming a common offering from suppliers, with EDF launching its cheapest EV tariff to date last week. Other tariffs on offer include ScottishPower’s SmartGreen EV tariff and the 1 Year Fix and Drive tariff launched by SSE Energy Services before it was acquired by OVO.
The time of use tariff launched by Good Energy comes as it unveils three new partnerships, the first being with home charging solutions provider Mina. The two are to explore energy service solutions for customer EV adoption, with Mina looking at home charging for both EV drivers and fleets. Its solution addresses the problem of paying for work vehicles to be charged at home.
Good Energy has also partnered Horizon Energy infrastructure, which offers funding and partnership solutions for low carbon assets. Horizon is to provide Good Energy business customers with asset backed funding for their charging infrastructure as part of Good Energy’s One Point EV hardware solution for businesses.
One Point was launched last year, with the supplier recommending, installing and maintaining charging services for businesses looking to offer destination or workplace charging.
Lastly, Select Car Leasing has appointed Good Energy as its green energy partner, providing Select customers with smart, 100% renewable tariffs.
Juliet Davenport, CEO and founder of Good Energy, said that any policy commitment towards net zero can’t be achieved without “fundamentally reshaping transport” with Good Energy “primed to position itself at the heart of this revolution”.
