Electric cars are charged using electricity that stores energy via rechargeable batteries or another energy storage device. They can be fully powered by electricity (EV), or a plug-in hybrid (PHEV) which is a combination of electric batteries and petrol or diesel engine.
Around 80% of New Zealand’s electricity comes from renewable energy, going electric is one small way that we can help reduce our emission from transport.
Jump on over and have a look at our Good Nights plan. On the plan, every night you get three free hours of electricity from 9pm-midnight.
It’s the perfect time to charge your EV, ready for the next day. It will put less pressure on the grid too when the peak time of power usage earlier in the evening has dropped off.
