Electric Car Plan

You’ve shopped around, and got yourself a shiny new electric car. Now, all you need is the right power plan to fill it up. You can power your electric car for less, with one of the sharpest EV plans in the market. 

Why choose the Electric Car Plan?

  • Super low night rates from 9pm to 7am*
  • You’ll get a 20% Prompt Payment Discount, just for paying in full and on time
  • Rates are guaranteed for three years, so you’re protected from price increases and know how much you’ll be paying for power
  • You need a smart meter to be on the plan. If you don’t have one, we’ll install one free of charge.

How does it work?

Our Electric Car plan is a day/night plan, meaning you pay a different rate for the power you use during the day than you do at night. The night rate is cheaper, as network companies charge lower rates and the demand for power is lower at night. If you’re on our Electric Car plan, the night rate applies between 9pm and 7am and price you pay is even lower than our other day/night plans, so it costs even less to charge your car overnight.

The Electric Car plan is only available in certain areas of the country*. Even if it’s not available where you are, you can still sign up to a Fixed Rate Plan and benefit from a 20% Prompt Payment discount and have the option to guarantee the price you pay for up to three years.

*Electric Car Plan available in the following networks - Vector, Wellington Electricity, Orion, Powerco, Aurora & Unison

Cheaper power from 9pm

You’ll save on ALL the power you use between 9pm and 7am, not just what you use charging your car. So you can make the most of your savings by shifting your power usage and setting your appliances to run during these times too.
