Charge Anytime

It's not your standard EV tariff, it's miles better

Switch to OVO and add Charge Anytime - our EV tariff upgrade - to smart charge your electric vehicle at home for just 7p per kWh – that’s around 2p a mile!1

Already with OVO? Charge Anytime can be added to any OVO plan for free. So you can benefit from a super-low EV charging rate with all our tariff options.

You also need to have either a compatible EV or charger, and a smart meter – so why not check your setup now, before you make the switch?

Important to know

For full details about Charge Anytime, read through our full terms and conditions.

  1. The 2p a mile claim is based on an EV customer driving the UK average of 7,000 miles at an average of 4 miles per kWh. The Charge Anytime add-on rate on 01/01/2024 is 7p per kWh. Actual sum per mile is 1.75p. Individual costs will vary based on your vehicle efficiency and driving style.
  2. The less than £200 claim is based on an average Charge Anytime customer using 2700kWh a year to charge their EV using the Charge Anytime add-on. The rate on 01/01/2024 is 7p per kWh for Charge Anytime. Actual amount for driving for a year is £189. Individual savings will vary based on your vehicle efficiency, driving style and EV charging usage.
  3. The 7p per kWh rate is effective whenever you smart charge your EV. If you'd like to override your smart charging schedule to top up quickly, you'll be charged at your standard home energy electricity rate. The next time you charge, you’ll automatically go back to your smart charging schedule.
  4. Our smart tech aims to charge your car when the grid has more renewable energy in it, within the time you’ve set. Meaning it’s less likely your EV will be charged by energy from fossil fuels.
  5. OVO Energy plants 1 million trees across the UK each year with its tree planting partners, The Conservation Volunteers and the Woodland Trust. Trees absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, so planting trees helps to slow down climate change.
