SSE hands EV drivers a boost with new tariff

SSE Energy Services has launched a new tariff, exclusively for electric vehicle (EV) owners, allowing them to drive for free.

On 22 October, it unveiled its 1 Year Fix and Drive, a fixed tariff that will give customers up to 2,000kWh of electricity free, per year, when they charge their car overnight. This equates to a free 8,000 miles each year, with midnight to 7am qualifying as overnight. SSE Energy Services added that when a customer takes out this tariff, all electricity will be matched with 100% renewable power.

Stephen Forbes, Managing Director of SSE Energy Services, said: “We know that the majority of EV owners charge their car at home as this is the easiest way to keep their battery topped up. We hope this new tariff will help the growing number of electric vehicle owners across the country reduce their carbon footprint and take control of their bills, too.”
