At ev.energy we're passionate about decarbonising transport. Obviously! We are always looking to improve our smart charging service by making it as green and cheap as possible for everyone. With 95% of EV charging done at home and solar panels decreasing in price by 89% in the last decade, offering solar smart charging to our users feels both exciting and necessary.
By choosing to get involved at this early stage you will be helping to influence the look, feel, and functionality of our fully-fledged product in the future. This Beta stage rollout is about us collecting as much data as possible to assess whether our software-only solution charges your car at the correct times. We feel confident cars will continue to charge at the greenest and cheapest times available whether that be when it's sunny during the day or overnight when your off-peak rate applies. The initial data that we've collected thus far is really promising! Our solar forecasting looks to be highly accurate and the charging algorithm is working as intended.
We're very grateful to our users that want to help us chart the course to zero (or even negative) carbon charging - thanks for being part of the green revolution!
If you're not on the Beta trial, but would like to get involved all you need to do is email support with the following information.
We'll then enable solar smart charging on your account and will be in touch with you to let you know that you're up and running.
If at any point you wish to turn off the solar smart charging feature then you can email us and we'll disable it for you right away.
