Charge up your electric vehicle without it costing the earth with our new Rest Easy EV Plan

How the Rest Easy EV plan works

You’ll have a day rate from 7am to 9pm, and a lower night rate from 9pm to 7am. Our night rates are from as low as the equivalent of 20 cents per litre*.

  • Guaranteed for three years on a fixed rate plan
  • 15% prompt payment discount
  • If you don’t have the right type of meter, we’ll change it for free

*Wellington customers will pay the equivalent cents per litre of 20c, Christchurch 24c and Auckland 30c, which is due to higher network night charges. This is based on 100% charging of the EV on the Rest Easy EV standard night rate and taking off 15% for prompt payment discount. It compares the fuel efficiency of a 2013 Nissan Leaf (electric car) with a 2013 Toyota Corolla (petrol powered).
