The RAC and British Gas have teamed up to enable more people to affordably adopt electric vehicles (EVs).

The partnership will allow customers to have EV chargers installed at their homes by British Gas, coupled with an electricity tariff that offers cheaper off-peak overnight charging.

The companies have stated their work will give customers a cheaper way to go electric, using renewable energy at their home overnight when demand is low. They claim this way of charging could save customers up to £300 on home electricity bills.

Portfolio Director at British Gas, Americo Lenza, said: “Working in partnership with the RAC allows us to provide a unique proposition for those looking for hassle-free motoring.

“For the first time, drivers can now combine the vehicle, the charger, the green energy, the servicing and the breakdown cover in one place.

“Supporting customers with cost-effective ways to make the change to electric is vital as we transition away from petrol and diesel cars. Once you have switched, you’ll never go back.”
