Electric vehicle tariffs explained

Electric vehicle tariffs are available to new and existing customers. It’s quick and easy to switch to us or upgrade your existing home energy tariff if you're an electric vehicle owner. To switch to an electric vehicle tariff, fill in our online form and one of our agents will call you to discuss our tariffs and payment options. There are two tariffs available for electric vehicle owners - EV Anytime and EV Nightshift.


EV Nightshift

Our EV Nightshift tariff is an off-peak tariff with a standing charge. With this tariff, you will pay a bill every three months. 

What makes this different from the EV Anytime tariff is that there are two different unit rates - one for day-time electricity use and one for night-time electricity use. If you choose this tariff, you will need a day and night meter. If your property does not already have a day and night meter installed one of our experts will arrange to have this installed with Northern Ireland Electricity Networks. 

The EV Nightshift tariff is ideal for electric vehicle customers who like to charge their car overnight as a cheaper electricity unit rate is applied during these off-peak overnight hours. The off-peak overnight hours are shown in the table below.

Summer time (BST)Winter time (GMT)
2am to 9am1am to 8am

The chart below outlines a sample cost for charging an electric vehicle during daytime hours compared with the overnight ‘off peak’ hours on the EV Nightshift tariff.

EV Anytime

The EV Anytime tariff offers a range of ways to pay, including Direct Debit and Keypad pay-as-you-go. This tariff may work best for you if you:

  • do a lot of regular driving during the day
  • own a lower-range electric vehicle, or; 
  • regularly charge your car during the day or evening
