    Ecotricity, Britain’s greenest energy company, and charge point manufacturer Rolec EV have launched the Fully Charged Bundle, a new electric vehicle charging offer with three key elements:

    New Green Electricity + EV tariff – Recognising electric vehicle drivers use more power than the average home, Ecotricity has created a new structure that will save the average EV household around £120 a year compared to a Big Six standard tariff – it’s the lowest cost electric vehicle tariff on the market.*

    WallPod home charging unit from Rolec - £99 installed – Thanks to its new partnership with charging specialists Rolec, Ecotricity customers can benefit from a significant discount on a professionally installed home charging unit. The WallPod can charge a vehicle up to 60% faster than a standard plug socket. Compared to other home chargers, this is a saving of around £180 – and is exclusive to Ecotricity customers.

    Half price charging on the road with the Electric Highway – Ecotricity is removing the connection fee of £3 for everybody and will charge a simple 30p per unit to charge on the road. Ecotricity customers will pay just 15p per unit – half price, and roughly equivalent to what they will be paying for their green electricity at home on the new Green Electricity + EV tariff – around a £50 a year saving for the average user.

    Dale Vince, Founder of Ecotricity, said:

    “We’ve been driving Britain's electric vehicle revolution for almost two decades, and are delighted to be teaming up with Rolec – they bring an important element to this new comprehensive EV driver package – a home charging solution. Our ambition in doing this is clear – to make electric vehicle charging at home and on the road more simple, joined up and cost effective for existing and new EV drivers, and in this way we hope to encourage more people to go electric.”

    Kieron Alsop, Managing Director of Rolec, added: 

    “We are delighted to be partnering with Ecotricity to launch this game-changing bundle for electric vehicle drivers. Rolec manufacture Europe’s largest and most comprehensive range of charging points and have recently hit the 75,000 units milestone. The Fully Charged bundle will benefit all EV drivers who switch.” 

    Ecotricity has championed the adoption of electric vehicles in the UK for almost 20 years. The company powered London’s first on-street charger in March 1999, built the record-breaking Nemesis electric supercar in 2008 and kick started the adoption of electric motoring in Britain back in 2011, by creating one of the world's first national charging networks, the Electric Highway. 

    The Fully Charged bundle is available for sign up now, click here for more information.

    *Based on average EV customer consumption of 6270kWh per year, standard meter only – on 28/11/2017

    Climate Clock

    The Climate Clock is a version of the Doomsday clock that has been running since 1947 - this tracks the risk of global man-made disaster, through man made technology (like nuclear weapons) - displaying the minutes and seconds left before midnight, when disaster strikes. The climate crisis is a small part of the calculations made.
    The climate clock uses a similar approach, but, focuses only on the climate crisis - which is the biggest and most urgent existential threat we face.
    "The Climate Clock is a countdown to the biggest man-made disaster we face - but also a measure by which we can track our progress - moving from fossil to renewable energy. It shows we have no time to lose - the clock is ticking…" Dale Vince, OBE.
    Ecotricity is a sponsor of the Glasgow Climate Clock that will run every night until COP26.
