It depends if you already have a smart meter and if we can talk to your smart meter if you plan to switch to OVO.
If you don't have a smart meter, you can request one by visiting smart.ovoenergy.com after you've signed up to OVO and received your first statement.
Once your installation has been confirmed, call us on the day of the install as soon as it's been installed and we'll switch you to the Economy 7 version of the 2 Year Fixed Energy plan, the tariff that underpins EV Everywhere.
If you already have a smart meter that we can talk to, you can upgrade to Economy 7 after you've switched to OVO. Once your switch is complete, just give us a call.
We'll always advise you of your new unit rates before confirming your switch to Economy 7 just in case you're not happy and want to stay on a standard rate tariff.
If you buy an EV and start charging it lots at home, then your energy bills will probably go up, but you’ll find that – over time – you may save in other ways, like tax and fuel. Take our Field Force team for instance. We’ve found that those who still use diesel vans will typically pay £150 in fuel to drive the same distance as those with electric vans who only pay £30 in electricity.
OVO’s EV Everywhere bundle can also help keep your costs down because it includes 2 years of fixed rates, which means zero price rises for a whole 24 months. It’s also the best value EV package in the UK, so when you take into account the free Green Energy and free POLAR plus membership add-ons you may save money overall.

Enter your OVO account number.
Your OVO and POLAR plus accounts are now connected. You'll no longer be charged a monthly membership fee while your an EV Everywhere customer and you can continue to use your existing POLAR plus smart card or key fob.
We give all our EV Everywhere customers free membership to POLAR plus – the UK’s largest charging network – but we don’t service the POLAR plus charging points ourselves. If you’ve got an issue with any of them, call the POLAR plus team directly on 0330 016 5126 or email [email protected].
We run a programme called ‘I Dig Trees’ in partnership with a charity called The Conservation Volunteers (TCV). They’re experts at finding green spaces across the UK, in which to plant trees – especially urban spots, because these make the greatest difference to local communities. The TCV (along with an army of OVO volunteers) plant in places like: local primary schools, old people’s homes, parks (in partnership with local authorities), roundabouts, colleges, and footpaths to name a few.
Free membership for 2 years to the UK's biggest charging network worth £188: By signing up to the EV Everywhere bundle for 2 years, you will get free membership to POLAR plus from the POLAR network (normal cost £188.40 for 2 years). This membership will give you access to 5,635 charge points in the UK - you will have free charging at 80% of those charge points, but you will need to pay a charging cost for the remaining 20%.
Free 100% renewable electricity for 2 years included, worth £120: By signing up to EV Everywhere for 2 years, you’ll get our Green Electricity add-on with your fixed plan for free (normal cost £120 for 2 years). If you're signed up to Green Electricity, we purchase renewable certificates for 100% of your electricity use from green sources such as wind, solar, geothermal, hydro, and waste-to-energy.

We'll plant 5 trees for you: We aim to plant 5 trees on your behalf in green spaces over the UK through our I Dig Trees programme. From April 2018 to March 2019 we're aiming to have planted at least 160,000 trees bringing the total number of trees planted to over 660,000 trees since 2015.
