An energy supplier is offering its customers the chance to lease an electric vehicle for a ‘reduced’ price – at the same time as trialing new environmentally friendly technology. 

Octopus Energy, through its sister company, Octopus Electric Vehicles, is encouraging customers to take part in a trial and give them access to its new Powerloop V2G Leasing Bundle.

Customers will be testing a technology called ‘vehicle-To-hrid’ (V2G) charging which essentially turns an electric car into a battery pack that can then power their home ‘off-grid’.

As part of the bundle, customers will get a ‘competitive’ lease on a Nissan LEAF, one of the most popular electric cars, a new EV charger for free and £30 off their energy bills every month.
