Calling all electric vehicle owners!

One of the highest consuming household electricity items are electric vehicles – particularly if you charge at home every day and in the evening. This is where Equiwatt can make one of the biggest differences to the way households manage peak electricity usage, so we’re keen to get as many electric vehicle owners using our technology as possible.

The increase in electric vehicles in the UK shows no sign of reducing any time soon. According to Next Green Car, new registrations of plug-in cars increased from 3,500 in 2013 to a phenomenal 206,000 by end of March 2019.

Pod point provide some excellent information about charge costs for EV’s. They reference an average overnight domestic electricity rate of 14p per kWh to estimate the charging cost of a 40 kWh Nissan Leaf (2018) to be £5.17 per day from empty.

At Equiwatt, we estimate that by better managing the peak time usage of electricity with our technology, we could pay EV owners up to £300 in rewards. That’s not a bad way to offset your EV charging bills!
