How we calculated this

Savings Calculation

Our calculations are based on the average miles driven by an American driver, national
energy pricing statistics and data averages from the 4 million + charging sessions that
have taken place through the ev.energy app between 01 January 2020 and 01 July
2022. See a full breakdown of the data that makes up this saving calculation below.

All usage statistics are based on an average American EV driver who drives 10,000
miles a year at an efficiency of 3.5 miles per kWh.

Smart Charging Savings

Smart charging savings are calculated by showing how much money you save on your
energy consumption using ev.energy’s technology to shift your charging from ‘Peak’
energy pricing windows to ‘Off-peak’ pricing windows.

Energy Pricing

As of October 01, 2022, Californian domestic energy pricing has an average of
$0.39 per kWh. peak and off-peak charging are based on the national average of the
PG&E domestic rate. ($0.42 peak rate & $0.34 off-peak rate) See the documentation
here.

Peak and Off-Peak Times

The most frequent peak times tend to be weekdays between 6pm-9pm, however
there is no fixed rule. Off-peak can be at any time, depending on the weather and
renewable generation on the grid. In the USA, generally, off-peak is overnight when
there is an abundance of wind or around lunchtime at the weekend when the sun is
shining. ev.energy takes care of tracking this complexity for you, ensuring you
always charge and the cheapest and greenest time every day.

ev.energy Technology Capabilities

Through multiple trials and our native app data, we have shown that ev.energy has
the capability to shift energy from the average peak service window up to 100%
(6pm-9pm). We have based the above calculations on a 97% shift in energy from
peak to off-peak pricing (Bloomberg ‘A review of real-world data from ev.energy’s
smart charging platform’, October 2021).

Solar Smart Charge Savings

The top 10% of participants in our Solar Beta Trial (N=356) completed an average of
40% of their annual charging using the energy generated from their home solar between
01 June 2022 and 30 June 2022. Our data shows that Solar Smart Charging is effective
from March to November across the USA with CA offering the ability to solar charge
year-round. Based on the average 6kWh solar array. This has been accounted for in our
annual savings calculation.

Rewards Earned

ev.energy is paid by energy networks to shift energy consumption from peak to off-peak
windows. We give this back to our customers in the form of reward points to spend on
their energy bills or through retailers.

Generating Points

ev.energy users generate 1 reward point for every charge over 7kWh.

Redeeming Rewards

You need 15 points to earn $5 in reward points as an ev.energy + user. You will need
30 points to earn $5 in rewards as a regular ev.energy user.

Average Earnings

Using the average American EV driver, we have taken the average consumption of
our 3 million charging sessions.

Frequently asked questions

How does the app calculate the best time to charge?

We use a combination of information, such as when you need your vehicle charged, energy production in your local area, your energy tariff, solar forecasting, and local energy demand, in order to optimize for the most affordable and environmentally friendly charge.

What if I need to use my vehicle last minute?

Not a problem! Just hit the ‘Boost’ button in the app to get an immediate charge. Bear in mind that this may use more expensive and carbon-intensive energy. Stop your charge at any time and just drive away as normal.

How much money could I save on home charging?

If you’re on a variable rate energy tariff, our app allows you to take advantage of cheaper off-peak rates. Savings will depend on what you live. You could save up to $925 in the US per year, £804 in the UK, or €925 in the EU.

If you’re on a flat rate tariff, you can still save money by earning smart rewards points worth up to $40, £30, or €40 to claim gift cards for Amazon, energy bill discounts, Carbon Footprint offset credits and more.

Frequently asked questions

How do I turn on Smart Charging in the app?

To get a cheaper and greener charge with Smart Charging, just head to the ‘Smart’ tab within the ev.energy app to set your preferred ready-by time. You can even set a different ready-by time for each day to suit your weekly schedule.

We will need to know your energy tariff and location in order to provide smart charging. If you haven’t set this up already, just go to the settings page within the app to get started.

How does Smart Charging work?

When you have Smart Charging activated, we’ll use information about your vehicle, energy tariff, local energy demand and other factors to optimize your charging for the lowest price and carbon emissions. Pretty smart. Learn more about how the ev.energy algorithm works.

What if I need my vehicle charged in a hurry?

You can override Smart Charging settings at any time. Just hit the Boost button in the app, then your car will get an immediate charge - perfect for those last-minute changes of plans when you need a little extra juice to get on your way.

Remember, when you turn off Smart Charging your charge will no longer be optimized to use the cheapest, greenest energy available.

How much money could I save on home charging?

Got a multi-rate energy tariff? You can use the ev.energy app to take advantage of lower-cost off-peak rates. Your total savings will depend on where you live and your personal set up, but you could save up to $925 in the US,  £804 in the UK, or €925 in the EU per year.

Got a single-rate energy tariff? You can still save money by earning Rewards points worth up to $40, £30, or €40 to claim gift cards for Amazon, energy bill discounts, Carbon Footprint offset credits and more.

We’re ready to help you charge better
