New to OVO - where do I find EV Everywhere tariff info for Economy 7?


I have just signed up to the EV Anywhere tariff. When I contacted Ovo to get my BG Smart Meter swapped for an Ovo Smart Meter (happening this Friday), I was told that the EV anywhere tariff also uses Economy 7 - and my new over smart meter will be Economy 7.

What I cannot find out (I can't find it anywhere on the website or my contract documents etc) is the Economy 7 rate and some assurance that the standard rate wont be adjusted upwards to compensate.

Can someone let me know please?

The rates that you’re paying will be outlined in your welcome letter or, you’ll be able to view them on your My OVO account. :)

Is Economy 7 a requirement of switching to EV Anywhere? It would not work for us.

TBH, we'd just like the free Polar membership, although we'd rarely use it.

It's not a requirement to have Economy 7, @andyfras - this is just an added benefit if you want to charge your EV at home during the night.

I think it's a marketing own goal or if you are more cynical a marketing vapourware push as the electric car tarriff Ovo has created cannot be accessed on economy 7 whilst most electric car users will be much better off on economy 7 and therefore are on it. Thoughts? Have raised it with ovo twice btw but no real response.

Hey E car London user,

I’ve moved your topic onto this thread as this is question has been raised on here.

Good news - If you’re an economy 7 customer, you can sign up to our EV Everywhere tariff. :)

Hi
I'm interested in switching to the EV Everywhere tariff having just got an EV but I need to understand the different rates involved in the economy 7 package. I can adjust things like car charging, washing machine etc to run overnight but with a family we are still going to be using plenty of juice at peak time. I therefore need to get an idea of the cost at peak and the cost overnight to work out if this is going to be a good or bad option for me. Could someone let me know please?

Thanks
Glad to hear that I can move and shame no one from Ovo responded previously to my ask of telling me when it was allowed!
