Electric Car plan
A year of charging for free
Switch to our Electric Car Plan before 31 December 2018 and we'll cover the cost of charging your electric car for a year (up to $300 bill credit).
"Charging your EV for a year" is based on a 2015 Nissan Leaf charging overnight with an average travel of 11,500kms on Meridian's Electric Car Standard Plan.
About the plan
The electric car plan is available for any residential customers who own a plug-in electric car.
- It offers a prompt payment discount of up to 20% for your total bill.
- There are special night & day rates for customers in certain networks.
- The rates are fixed for a term of 2 or 3 years.
Cheaper power from 9pm
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. You need a smart meter for this, so if you don't have one we will get it installed for you free of charge.
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.
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.
These special rates are available in Vector, Wellington Electricity, Orion, Powerco, Aurora & Unison networks.
