AA unveils monthly AA EV Recharge Report

Published:  09 December, 2022

With energy prices on the up, and EV drivers facing higher bills, the AA has launched a monthly AA EV Recharge Report, that will look at the pay-as-you-go (PAYG) pricing across all chargepoint speeds available on public chargers, as well as domestic charging costs.

The report takes the average prices of more than 6,000 chargers across the UK, 17% of all devices, with the initial November 2022 report reinforcing that home charging is the cheapest possible option.

Commenting on the launch of the report, Edmund King, AA president, said: “We are pleased to launch an EV version of our much-acclaimed Fuel Price Report5. This report will help educate and inform drivers looking to switch to an EV and show how the cost of charging moves over time.”

Commenting on the findings of the first report, Jack Cousens, the AA’s recharging spokesman, added: “Surprisingly, fast chargers are on average cheaper than slow charging, but subscription offers for on-street lampposts can be found with deals around 29 p/kWh.
Most people will opt for pay as you go rates when away from home, especially if they top their EV up at rapid and ultra-rapid chargers. While the cost of recharging will always be cheaper than refuelling, EVs can lose out to diesel cars when looking at the pence per mile cost. However, those with a home charger reap the rewards of the cheapest rates possible. Many can also enjoy discounted rates if their energy provider offers an off-peak tariff for overnight charging.”
