Launching GridShift with SVCE in California

Read about how we helped this business.

With over 20,000 EVs in its service territory, community choice aggregator Silicon Valley Clean Energy sought to launch an end-to-end residential EV charging program called “GridShift.” SVCE sought to manage customers’ EV charging against multiple variables: firstly, off-peak on their TOU rates, and secondly during the lowest-carbon hours in CAISO NP15 during off-peak periods.

Smart solution

SVCE contracted to deliver a turnkey EV charging service for the GridShift program. partnered with WattTime to provide the renewable generation forecasts, and white-labelled a mobile app for SVCE. Customers enrolled in the program and connected their compatible vehicle or EVSE via the app, and received push notifications alerting them to plug in before low-carbon events.

Big impact

GridShift participants save over $200 per year by charging off-peak on their TOU rate, depending on their rate and amount of charging done at home. In addition, over 60% of participants are responding to low-carbon events, using energy to charge that is up to 75% lower-carbon and earning up to $10/month in additional on-bill credits.
