By moving to an electric car you have already taken a very positive step towards a greener low carbon lifestyle and protecting the environment. Even using conventional fossil-fuel generated grid power your carbon emissions are vastly reduced. If however you want to really minimise your carbon impact we suggest looking into renewable electricity. To us EVs and renewable energy generation go hand in hand.
There are two ways that EV owners typically approach renewable integration. Buying electricity from a 100% renewable energy supplier such as Pure Planet is the simplest and most cost-effective way to run your EV with zero carbon emissions.
Not only are companies like Ecotricity and Pure Planet 100% renewable, but they are also one of the cheapest utility providers in Britain. We recommend making the change, even if you’re not considering an electric car.
The second option is to generate your own electricity from you own solar pv panel array. This will give you completely green and sustainable electric power, that you can use to power your home, as well as charging your EV free of any cost. The energy to power your vehicle comes from literally a few meters away with no carbon footprint and no cost. Many EV owners think of the purchasing a solar system as pre-buying their fuel for the next few years.
