How will I know when there is an equivent?

You will receive a notification on the app when an equivent has begun.

Every time we run an equivent, we will send you a notification via the app to let you know when it has started.

If you have an electric vehicle (EV) connected to equiwatt or a home appliance connected to equiwatt's platform using a smart plug and opted-in for equivents, your participation will be automatic.

You can see how much time is left on the equivent by opening the app and heaping to the home page. A blue countdown clock in the top lefthand corner will display the time remaining in the event.
