Charge smart, pay less: British Gas now offers the UK’s most affordable EV charging
With Hive SmartCharge, users now benefit from a 4p/kWh discount on every EV charge-up. That’s up to £298 slashed off their energy bill, straight into their pocket, month after month.
Activating the free SmartCharge feature within the Hive app is all that’s required – Hive will do the rest. With Hive’s automatic charging feature, users can leave their EV plugged in, and Hive will charge it up when energy prices dip during the session. Paired with the Electric Driver tariff, users could be paying just 4.95p/kWh if they plug in overnight between 12am – 5am.
Hive SmartCharge is available to British Gas electricity customers through the Hive app, offering a potential reduction in transportation expenses for 2024 and beyond. Crucially, it also contributes to the nation’s EV transition and net zero ambitions.
Kim Royds, Director of Mobility, Centrica New Business & Net Zero said:
“We’re committed to making the transition to net zero simple and affordable and electric vehicles play a key part in this. Through our innovative SmartCharge offering, we’re helping EV owners take charge of their energy bills and access the cheapest EV charging rate on the market while also helping manage the demand on the grid.”
And for those yet to purchase an EV charger, British Gas has also rolled out an unbeatable FreeCharge offer. New Hive EV charger customers get a full year of free home charging.
British Gas is revolutionising the home EV charging landscape, offering unparalleled affordability and convenience through Hive SmartCharge and FreeCharge promotions. With a commitment to simplifying the transition to net zero, it’s empowering EV owners to control their energy bills while supporting the nation’s sustainability goals. As they lead the charge, British Gas remains dedicated to delivering innovative solutions that make sustainable mobility accessible to all.
