The best option for charging electric vehicles is to sign up for a comprehensive solution that includes a time interval for charging the vehicle for free. With Endesa’s comprehensive charging solution for electric vehicles, for example, you can cover all your electric vehicle charging requirements from €1.05 per day, including the installation of the charging equipment and maintenance. If you add the Zero Tempo tariff you could do 10,000 Km a year for €0, given that from 01:00 to 07:00 in the morning you can charge your electric vehicle for free.
Another option is the Tempo Happy tariff, which allows you to choose any two hours of the day in which your electricity will cost 0 euros, so you can charge your vehicle during those hours. However you will need a fast or semi-fast charging system in order to allow you time to charge your battery during those hours.
Lastly, if you have a time restriction tariff, it is best to charge your electric vehicle at night, when electricity is cheaper. But beware, the “off-peak” time interval in which electricity is cheaper may vary. Generally speaking, in summer it is from 23:00 to 13:00 and in winter it is from 22:00 to 12:00. This gives you enough time to fully charge your car’s battery (conventional charging, the slowest system, which takes approximately 8 hours).
If you have the “super off-peak” tariff, the cheapest interval will be from 07:00 in summer and in winter. With this tariff you will spend €1.55 for every 100 km covered, compared with the €7.79/100km minimum cost of combustion engine vehicles. You can also use the charging points located in public spaces, which you will find here.
