Red Energy offers brief free-charging window for EV owners

Australian electricity and gas retailer Red Energy has offered a freebie to its customers who own an electric vehicle (EV). It says it will provide free electricity usage between noon and 2pm on Saturdays and Sundays for those with EVs, and a smart or interval meter. Red also "guarantees" that for every unit of electricity a customer uses, it will match it by generating one unit from a renewable source.
