How does evPulse collect and use data?

How does the Smart Charge program work?

Once your EV is connected in the registration process and you've been enrolled in the Smart Charge program, your charging will be optimally scheduled each time you plug in at home.

evPulse identifies the lowest-cost periods you can charge in order to meet your upcoming driving needs (while considering overall grid conditions) and automatically schedules your EV to charge during those periods.

You'll receive notifications about your upcoming schedule through your preferred method (web and/or SMS texts) and can skip your proposed charge schedule if needed.
