If you have a compatible smart charger
To benefit from Charge Anytime rates with your smart charger, you need to schedule the charge. This is so we know when the car battery needs to be charged for, and can choose the best, greenest time to do it. You set the schedule in the charger manufacturer’s app.
If you ‘Urgent Charge’ through the app, or boost charge using an eligible charger you won’t earn Charge Anytime credit.
You can override your smart charging schedule at any time. This will let you top-up quickly when you need to, at your standard home electricity rate. The next time you charge, you’ll automatically go back to your smart charging schedule.
If you have a compatible vehicle
You’ll need to download the Charge Anytime app (for Android here, for Apple here). In the Charge Anytime app you set the ‘Ready By’ time that you want the car to be fully charged by. Then you plug your car in and leave it until that time. It’s because we know when the car needs to be ready by, that we can offer the 7p/kWh rate.
What if I need an urgent charge?
If you need the car to be fully charged as soon as possible, you can select ‘Urgent Charge’ in the Charge Anytime app. This would skip using Charge Anytime and just charge the car as quickly as possible, but at your normal unit rate.
