My car is not currently supported - can I join a waiting list?

We are adding new EV's regularly so if you would like to try our app, but your car is not currently supported, please fill in this form and we will contact you when your car is added.

A beta programme allows early users to try out brand new apps and provide feedback and ideas before officially launching to the public on an app store.

User input to the equiwatt EV beta app will help us to understand your needs and find improvements that will make it an even better experience for you.

The equiwatt EV app has a feedback mechanism built into the app called 'Shake' - look out for the circle floating on screens where you can create tickets for feedback and share screenshots. 

 

We connect with your EV and automatically charge it when energy is at its greenest and cheapest. We will also pause your vehicle charging for periods of up to 1 hour if it is charging during peak times when energy is more expensive or most carbon generating. We call these times, Equivents. during which you will earn points according to the amount of energy saved. If you have a dynamic tariff, such as Time of Use tariff, you will be able to set the app to automatically charge your EV according to your tariff rates.

No. For the time being, we will only pause your EV when it is charging at your home charge point. 

For the purposes of this trial, EV smart charging will be managed via a dedicated EV app but will ultimately be integrated with the current equiwatt Smart Home App to provide one single equiwatt app experience.

If you already have an equiwatt account, you will be able to sign in to the EV smart charging app with the same credentials. Your EV smart charging points will be also reflected in your points balance via the equiwatt Smart Home app (please note, EV points will not count towards the monthly Leaderboard during the trial).
