Electric Vehicle drivers not on specialist tariffs are not taking advantage of potential benefits, Mina says
(Posted on 21/04/23)
Charging platform Mina suggests that electric vehicle owners who charge their vehicles at home but do not have a specialised electricity tariff may be losing the opportunity to save a significant amount of money.
Electric vehicle (EV) drivers who are not on specialist tariffs may be missing out on potential savings, according to a recent statement made by Mina, a leading provider of smart energy solutions. Mina notes that not many EV owners are not taking advantage of the various tariffs and incentives that are available to them, which could be costing them money in the long run.
One of the main reasons for this, according to Mina, is a lack of awareness about the different tariffs and schemes that are available. Many EV owners are not aware that they could be saving money by switching to a specialist tariff, or they may not fully understand how these tariffs work. This can lead to them paying more for their electricity than they need to.
Specialist tariffs for EV owners typically offer lower rates for off-peak charging, which can be a significant cost-saving for those who charge their vehicles overnight. They may also offer free or discounted charging at certain times or locations, which can further reduce the cost of running an EV.
In addition to specialist tariffs, there are also various incentives and schemes available to EV owners, such as government grants and tax credits. Again, many EV owners may not be aware of these incentives or may not know how to take advantage of them.
Mina is calling on energy companies and other stakeholders to do more to educate EV owners about the various tariffs and incentives that are available to them. By raising awareness and providing clear information about these schemes, more EV owners could be encouraged to switch to specialist tariffs and take advantage of the various cost-saving measures available to them.
There are currently around 500,000 EVs on the road in the UK, and this number is expected to continue to grow in the coming years. As more people make the switch to electricity, it is important that they are aware of the various cost-saving measures available to them. By taking advantage of these schemes, EV owners can save money on their energy bills and help to reduce their carbon footprint at the same time.
In conclusion, EV drivers who are not on specialist tariffs may be missing out on potential savings. By raising awareness and providing clear information about the various tariffs and incentives that are available, more EV owners could be encouraged to switch specialist tariffs and take advantage of the various cost-saving measures available to them. It is important that energy companies and other stakeholders work together to ensure that EV owners are fully informed and able to make informed decisions about their energy usage.
