The Advanced Tier is a more sophisticated managed charging tier where participants are rewarded for partnering with the utility to coordinate charging such that EV charging is optimized on the utility system.

This optimization helps the utilities operate a more cost-efficient and flexible grid.

This tier requires more coordination between the participant and the utility than the Baseline Tier and therefore the utilities offer more incentives for customers participating at this level.

In this tier, participants will create a charging schedule for themselves, and the utilities will coordinate and optimize the charging schedules of all EVs in the Advanced Tier to drive better outcomes for their grid systems.

Participants are required to keep a schedule and do their best to not override this schedule
