A new tariff specifically tailored for drivers of electric vehicles is now available from E.ON, offering people who join a fixed reward of £30 per year equivalent to 850 free miles.
‘E.ON Fix and Drive’ is a two-year fixed price tariff which offers residential customers peace of mind that the unit price of their energy will not increase for the duration of their 24-month contract. The tariff is available now to drivers who own or lease a plug-in electric or hybrid vehicle that is registered with the DVLA.
The tariff comes with 100% matched renewable electricity certified through Renewable Energy Guarantees of Origin (REGO). In addition, the carbon associated with customers’ gas use will be offset through CER (Carbon Emission Reduction) credits – carbon certificates issued by the United Nations’ Clean Development Mechanism (CDM).
Michael Lewis, Chief Executive of E.ON UK, said: “It’s clear that the country needs an increase in electric vehicle charging points, whether at home or workplaces, in car parks or alongside leisure facilities. We’re leading the charge, with both E.ON Drive for businesses and now E.ON Fix and Drive for residential customers.
“Sales of electric vehicles are increasing year on year and the UK is now one of Europe’s largest markets for them.4 Drivers need to be able to charge their cars quickly and conveniently, and for many, that means plugging in at home.
“Our new Fix and Drive tariff has been specifically designed with these customers in mind, who likely have higher electricity bills, to provide competitive pricing, a rebate and clean energy to supply their homes and power their vehicles.“
The free 850 mile reward is paid to E.ON Fix and Drive customers in the form of a £30 credit on their electricity account six months after they sign up to the tariff and is earned annually. The dual fuel tariff is available for customers who have a credit meter and who agree to pay by fixed monthly Direct Debit.
For businesses, E.ON also offers E.ON Drive which provides an end-to-end solution for the design, installation, operation and maintenance of charging posts, as well as providing the necessary power supply and managing its sale to the driver, be that an employee or client.
