E.ON offers free miles to EV drivers with new energy tariff

Customers will receive a £30 credit on their electricity account, which is earned annually

E.ON has launched a new energy tariff specifically tailored for electric vehicle (EV) drivers, offering around 850 free miles a year.

The ‘Fix and Drive’ tariff is fixed for two years and provides a £30 annual cashback reward, which the supplier says is equivalent to the free driving miles.

Customers will receive the credit on their electricity account six months after they sign up to the tariff and is earned annually.

The tariff, certified as 100% renewables through Ofgem’s Renewable Energy Guarantees of Origin (REG), is available to drivers who own or lease plug-in electric or hybrid vehicles registered with the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA).

In addition, the carbon associated with customers’ gas use will be offset through Carbon Emission Reduction credits, i.e. carbon certificates issued by the UN.

Michael Lewis, Chief Executive of E.ON UK said: “Sales of electric vehicles are increasing year on year and the UK is now one of Europe’s largest markets for them. Drivers need to be able to charge their cars quickly and conveniently and for many, that means plugging in at home.

“Our new Fix and Drive tariff has been specifically designed with these customers in mind, who likely have higher electricity bills, to provide competitive pricing, a rebate and clean energy to supply their homes and power their vehicles.”
