Terms and conditions

1  It charges when grid demand is low and electricity is more likely to have been produced by renewable sources

Subject to your Smart Charger's charging schedule, it will charge your vehicle battery from the grid when electricity is in low demand (and is cheaper) and of a lower carbon intensity.

Carbon intensity is a measure of the grammes of CO2 emitted in producing a kWh of electricity, and is usually lower for renewable or green sources of energy.

Low electricity prices occur when there is low demand on the grid relative to supply.

2 You could get up to £500 off the cost of the charger and installation

Our installers and charger are Office for Low Emission Vehicles (OLEV) accredited. This means, if you're eligible, you could get up to £500 off the cost of the charger and installation through the government's OLEV Electric Vehicle HomeCharge Scheme. See terms here: https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/government-grants-for-low-emission-vehicles#electric-vehicle-homecharge-scheme

3 Capable of charging more than twice as fast as a 3 pin plug

With a 7kW power output, OVO Smart Charger could charge a 30kWh battery in 4 hours, 20 minutes.A standard UK mains socket has a maximum power output of 3kW and would take 10 hours to charge a 30kWh vehicle battery (providing all other factors remained equal – including the temperature and state of the battery).

4 Saves you money by charging off-peak

If you’re on our economy 7 tariff, you can schedule your charging so your car only charges overnight on off-peak rates.
