Smart charging bonus

for EV drivers

Ohme smart EV charger

WITH electricity prices reduced from the start ofApril, EV drivers will be able to charge their cars for less says Ohme, the UK's largest dynamic smart charging company.

As the Standard Variable Tariff drops to 24.5p/kWh on April 1 - the lowest price in two years - drivers of electric vehicles will be able to experience greater savings when charging at home.

While that will be welcome news for EV drivers keen to reduce their charging costs, Ohme is encouraging those same drivers to make even bigger savings by switching to a smart EV tariff.

"As more people are trying to lower their household bills, this reduction in the price of electricity will be welcome news for drivers of EVs," said David Watson, Ohme chief executive.

"However, they could easily lower those bills further by finding out if their electricity supplier offers a special tariff for EV drivers. If not, then they should consider switching to an energy provider that does to enjoy even bigger savings of running an EV."

Charging on the new Standard Variable Tariff in a typical EV for 6,800 miles of driving - the UK annual average - would cost £417.00.

On a smart EV tariff the same mileage would cost £127.50. The same distance in a petrol car would cost more than £1,100.

Ohme is the official charger provider for Mercedes-Benz and Hyundai in the UK, as well as Polestar and the Volkswagen Group and customers on the Motability scheme.

Ohme has been named as Fast Track Company of the Year in the 2023 UK Green Business Awards as well as Best Chargepoint Manufacturer in the 2024 Irish EV awards.
