ACT electricity company ActewAGL has announced the launch of the evEnergy Saver Plan, created specifically for electric vehicle owners.

With one in five new cars registered in the ACT now an EV, the introduction of an EV-specific energy plan helps the growing community of owners to further optimise the value of their investment with attractive energy rates and benefits.

With the evEnergy Saver Plan, customers can access discounted rates, receive 200 hours of free weekend charging and maintain full flexibility with no lock-in contracts. In addition, the plan works with all EVs and chargers—there are no set charger requirements.

The evEnergy Saver Plan is part of ActewAGL’s greater goal to support a smooth transition to EVs by providing support at all stages of the EV transition, including finding a car, financing and charging solutions.

“Canberra already has one of the highest rates of EV ownership in the country, and this trend will only continue as the community moves towards net zero emissions. The latest addition to our dedicated evHub, our new evEnergy Saver Plan is just one of the many innovative ways we are simplifying the transition to EVs for our customers,” ActewAGL general manager retail Rachael Turner saids.

To support the ACT Government’s legislated target to achieve net zero emissions by 2045, ActewAGL has committed to helping one in four households to switch to an electric vehicle by 2030.

ActewAGL’s online evHub enables customers to find, finance and charge EVs. Through the online evFind service in partnership with Vyro, customers can purchase new and used vehicles from a range of different manufacturers in just a few minutes, often circumventing industry wait times.
