Scottish Power has introduced its first tariff to enable customers to charge their electric vehicles (EVs) at home.

The two-year fixed price “Smart Green Electric Vehicle June 2020” tariff will provide 100 per cent renewable energy, the company said.

Neil Clitheroe, chief executive of retail, said: “All analysis shows that the shift to electric vehicles will gather serious pace in the coming years, and customers quite rightly expect bespoke services to support them in their journey to electric.

“Our growing focus on electric vehicle services and bespoke tariffs reflects the exciting changes in the energy retail market, as we modernise and digitise the hardware and software that supports our customers.”

The company has also introduced a charge point finder in its “Your Energy” app to help customers locate their nearest charging point away from home and has created a new section on its website to provide more information on EVs.

Scottish Power said it planning  a range of “further developments”, as it seeks to enhance its existing provision of home services, connected in-home services, and increased home protection.

Other suppliers have previously launched similar tariffs such as Ovo Energy’s “EV Everywhere” and Ecotricity and charge point manufacturer Rolec EV’s “Fully Charged Bundle”.
