Power NI is the first energy company here to launch their Electric Vehicle tariff. The EV Anytime and the EV Nightshift, are for drivers of electric vehicles (EV) who charge their vehicles at home. Power NI Customers can save up to over 20% off their energy bills compared to the standard tariff rate, which is equivalent to over 5,000 free driving miles* when switched to an EV tariff.

Francesca Woodman, Senior Social Media and Campaigns Executive with Mick O’Reilly, Innovation Specialist from Power NI.

There are two new tariffs to choose from which are available from August, to suit individual EV drivers, model range and charging habits. In addition to cost savings, drivers can reduce their carbon footprint as Power NI’s new EV tariffs are powered by 100% renewable** energy. 

To switch to an EV tariff, customers can complete the form on the Power NI EV tariff page and Power NI will be in touch to complete the change to the preferred EV tariff.

Power NI’s EV anytime is a single-rate tariff, meaning customers pay the same unit all day with a standing charge, ideal for drivers who notch up a lot of miles and regularly need to charge their vehicles. The EV Nightshift tariff is an off-peak tariff with a standing charge with two different unit rates, one for day-time use and one for night-time use. The EV Nightshift is more economical and catered to drivers who have range to spare and can wait to charge overnight. 

William Steele, Director of Customer Solutions at Power NI comments; “At Power NI we are delighted to be the first energy company in Northern Ireland to launch Electric Vehicle tariffs which will provide savings for customers with Electric Vehicles, as well as helping to lower their carbon emissions - as the tariff is being powered by 100% renewable** sources. 

“There are almost 5,000 electric vehicles registered in Northern Ireland as of the end of April this year, with over 200 registered in the Newry, Mourne, and Down area, and the demand is growing. As Northern Ireland’s most trusted energy company, we are committed to creating a more sustainable, greener future and are at the forefront of innovative sustainable energy projects in Northern Ireland.”

As well as launching the new green Electric Vehicle tariff, Power NI is part of the Belfast Maritime Consortium led by Artemis Technologies, which is developing a zero-emissions hydrofoil ferry between Belfast and Bangor. Also, through Power NI’s parent company Energia Group, the company recently launched NI’s first hydrogen-powered double decker buses in conjunction with Translink and Wrightbus.
