Fast chargers ace the speed test, charging eight times faster than your standard charger.
So, what’s so special about smart chargers, anyway?
You can set charging schedules to power up when energy rates are at their lowest and track your consumption.
Now that you know about the advantages – should we talk about savings?
Electric vehicles are becoming increasingly popular around the world, and for good reason. They offer a cleaner and more sustainable way of driving. But one concern for EV owners is the cost of charging their vehicle. Enter smart chargers. But what makes them so special? Let’s take a closer look.
Smart chargers are not just faster, but they also communicate with your car, home, and electric grid to regulate energy levels into your EV. This means you can set charging schedules to power up when energy rates are at their lowest and track your consumption. But the real question is, can you save money with them?
In the UK, for example, you can get an EV home charger for a fraction of its total price through the Electric Vehicle Homecharge Scheme. This grant can pay for up to 75% of EV home chargers like Pulsar Max and installation costs if eligible. The UK is also leading the way with national comprehensive electrification strategies, making it easier than ever to take advantage of all the benefits of EV ownership.
Savings thanks to scheduling
But the savings don’t end there. Did you know that if you charge your EV during off-peak hours with a smart home charger like Pulsar Max, you can save exponentially on your energy bill? By scheduling your charging sessions during night hours, you could save up to £1200 annually!
In the US, federal EV equipment tax credits can cover up to 30% of the cost of purchasing and installing home chargers like Pulsar Max. With home EV chargers, you can also access lower electricity rates, making it no surprise that 80% of all EV owners nationwide choose to charge at home.
But why stop at home? Thanks to voucher-based schemes like the Workplace Chargepoint Grant, more companies are offering EV charging points to their employees, making it easier to recharge on the go.
So it’s a fact! Smart chargers are not just fast, they can also save you money. By taking advantage of the various policies and incentives available, you can make the most out of your EV ownership experience while contributing to a cleaner and more sustainable future. So you can sleep tight knowing that your EV is charging smartly and saving you money at the same time.
