Vistra says it will launch a new technology-enabled retail electricity product through its flagship brand, TXU Energy, to use electric vehicle data to allow free daily home charging. The company says the solution will provide power backed by 100% renewable sources.
With TXU Energy Free EV Miles, Vistra says customers will get a 100% discount on all home EV charging every evening from 7 p.m. through 1 p.m. the next day. This allows for 125 hours of charging time each week for free. Customers will see their free charging usage and free miles on each monthly billing statement.
Vistra says if an owner needs to charge outside of the free hours, they will pay a fixed rate – the same as the rest of their home.
