Smart charge times are determined using your vehicle’s charging needs and rate plan information, grid stress, and energy cleanliness signals.
Based on these inputs, evPulse algorithms prioritize meeting the following goals in order:
- Get your car charged up by the time you need it
- Charge at the cheapest times
- Charge when energy generation is cheapest or electric grid stress is lowest
When you charge during smart times, you will typically be minimizing your energy costs while reducing stress on the grid and supporting cleaner energy generation.
