We’re not the sort of company that would go with a traditional car scheme. Being able to offer something that promotes cleaner transport has been a real benefit to helping our team live our mission of a more sustainable world – they are amazed at what a brilliant deal this is.
We’re committed to improving environmental sustainability wherever we can and offering our employees the opportunity to drive an electric car through salary sacrifice is a great way to do this. Octopus EV’s salary sacrifice scheme makes driving electric easy and affordable, helping our staff lead more sustainable lifestyles.
The complete solution
The bundle offers leasing, charging and tariff, meaning we always know how one affects the other. Octopus EV helps you in understanding the usefulness of EVs, while supporting you with EV adoption through leasing and showing you how charging works around your life. This allows you to get the most out of your LEAF, while Octopus gathers data to implement V2G around the UK; rethinking the way energy is stored and used.
Frequently asked questions
How will it work for me?
Once you plug in at home, you just tell us when you next need your car using the Powerloop app. In the meantime, we’ll optimise the charge and discharge pattern.
Will I be in control?
How does the rebate work?
How much money will Octopus earn from using my car?
How does V2G help the grid?
There's a huge amount of energy locked up in electric cars Just ten Nissan LEAFs could power 1000 homes for an hour. Our V2G system optimises the use of your car's battery; powering your home - and your neighbours homes - when electricity demand is high, then charging back up at times when demand is low. A more flexible grid also means a more renewable grid. The sun isn't always shining, and the wind isn't always blowing. V2G gives us the ability to store and release renewable energy whenever we need it.
What if I don't manage to complete 12 cycles in a month?
You'll only receive the incentive if you complete the full 12 cycles in a month, so unfortunately you wouldn't get the cashback in that month.
Will this damage my battery?
The shortest, and most honest answer is that we don't know. This is one of many reasons we're running this project; to find out what works in Vehicle to Grid, and fix the things that don't.
Can I be a Powerloop customer if I have solar panels at home?
Yes, we don’t have any restrictions on solar PV. However, there are a few things to consider.
How does the Feed-in-Tariff (FiT) work with the Powerloop bundle?
Why don’t you just put me on the Outgoing Octopus tariff?
