Not sure if your aware, now that you've moved to EV or PHEV, like myself a Kia e-Niro 4+, what a great car :)

Octopus energy do some great rates for charging your car at night, its only 5.00p per kw (between 00:30 to 04:30), not sure what your day rate will be, mines 13.45p (East Anglia), which is a lot cheaper than my previous energy provider SSE.

If your interested and you click on the link below you would receive a £50 credit to your account, that's 1000kw of energy at 5.00p of free motoring. That's almost 16 full charges at 282 miles, approximate 4500 miles, based on a Kia e-Niro.

Octopus Energy

Also there's no fixed term so you can move at anytime, if a better deal comes available.

The above information is based on the Octopus GO tariff. ;)

Never heard of Octopus ;) , but Symbio is under 11p per kwh (including VAT, the Octopus price you quote is ex vat) all the time, so if your 4 hour overnight usage is less than approx 35% of your total energy bill (and you don't have significant overnight use ie storage heaters) that is a better option. And you can charge when you like. Lower standing charge of 20p per day on Symbio too...
