British Gas and Npower under starters orders to deliver first EV charging tariff

Energy giants both announce plans for dedicated overnight electric car charging tariff

The race is on to deliver the first UK energy tariff specifically tailored for electric vehicle (EV) owners, after British Gas and Npower both announced plans last week to launch tariffs that offer discounted electricity for recharging cars overnight.

Centrica-owned British Gas said that under its new tariff EV owners would pay as little as 1.25p per mile to power their car, saving around £1,200 a year compared to fuelling a conventional family car to travel 10,000 miles.
