How often do equivents happen?

equivents happen 10-12 times each month and last for up to an hour.

You will receive a notification on the app when each equivent has begun. If your electric vehicle is connected to equiwatt or any of your appliances are connected to equiwatt's platform using a smart plug AND you are opted-in for equivents, then your participation will be automatic.

NOTE: Depending on the speed and reach of your WiFi, it can take a couple of minutes at the beginning of an equivent for us to connect to your Smart Plug to switch it off, so don't worry if it doesn't switch off straight away!
