FAQs

You can find the answers to your EV Everywhere questions at OVO Help, or browse our most commonly asked questions here.

Absolutely! We offer unit rates for both standard and Economy 7 meter types.

As these differ from region to region, if you want to find out exactly what your unit rates would be, follow these steps:

  • Proceed with our quote process.
  • Choose Yes to Question 7.
  • When we show you your plan details, expand the Your unit rates section. This will show you the unit rates applicable to your geographic area.
  • If you're happy with the price, complete the switch process.

 

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.

Existing customers can sign up through the Offers section of My OVO. Please email us if you have any problems signing up.

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.

That's great. You'll have an opportunity to link your OVO and POLAR plus accounts during the signup process. Follow these steps once your OVO account number has been issued:

  1. Log into your POLAR plus account.
  2. Scroll down to the Connect your OVO Account section.
  3. Enter your OVO account number.
  4. Select Connect.

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 info@polar-network.com.

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.

The OLEV Grant is a government grant for Electric Vehicles. It provides £500 off the cost of purchasing and installing a home charge point.

Read more about the OLEV grant here.

We will ask you a few simple questions when you sign up to determine whether or not you are eligible.

If you are not eligible for an OLEV grant, we will offer you the POLAR plus add on as an alternative.
