An ‘event’ is when we send a signal to your vehicle or charger to pause charging for a specific period of time and start charging again at a later time.
We do this using software that integrates with either your car or EVlink Smart Wallbox charger, to shift the times at which your car charges (generally outside of evening peak periods) to other times of the day which help support the grid.
Earning bill credits
The quarterly bill credit is applied on a pro-rata basis according to the number of days in your billing period. For example, as you can receive up to $200 a year in bill credits, this is a daily credit of $0.55, which is multiplied by the number of days in your billing period.
Keep you moving
You can also opt out of or override a smart charging event, in case you need to charge your vehicle immediately.
Remember, EV’s typically only need a fraction of the time to charge than what they are plugged in for. In most cases we are simply shifting the times when charging occurs to a lower demand period.
