When we calculate the best smart charging schedule for you, we take into account:

  1. your solar energy generation
  2. your electricity tariff
  3. how carbon-intensive the energy coming from the grid is
  4. the demand and load on your supplier

The first two factors optimise for cost, and work hand in hand. Simply put:

  • we will charge your car during sunny times if it is the cheapest option
  • we will not charge your car during sunny times if we know that there will be cheaper electricity available later that day from the grid

Therefore, please note that if you are on a variable electricity tariff, you must add your tariff details to our app, otherwise Solar Smart Charging will not be able to save you money reliably.
