Up to 6 times cheaper EV charging with dynamic rates

More than just a charging station

Do you want to charge your electric car as cost-efficient as possible? With Smappee you can, based on solar energy, off-peak, and now also, dynamic rates. Want to learn more? Keep reading to find out what dynamic rates mean for your energy bill or contact us to view a real-life example.

What are dynamic rates?

Energy suppliers are increasingly required to offer dynamic energy price contracts. With these contracts, electricity prices vary per day and usually even per hour. These flexible rates are linked to prices in wholesale electricity markets. In this way, the governments hope that consumers will become more energy conscious.

How can you save with dynamic rates?

When renewable energy production is high, such as on sunny or windy days, or when demand is low, such as at night, you as a consumer pay a lower price for your electricity. If you switch your electricity consumption to those times, such as by charging your electric car during high solar production or at night, you can save significantly or even get paid for the electricity you consume.

What do dynamic rates mean for your Smappee charging station?

With Smappee’s dynamic load-balancing, our charging stations use as much solar energy as possible or tap into energy when it’s the cheapest according to off-peak, capacity or dynamic rates. The combination of electric charging and dynamic rates is especially unique to Smappee. This way, you can be sure that when you switch from solar energy to power consumption from the grid, this is done at the lowest possible cost. You charge via the grid at the most cost-efficient time. This allows you to easily save on your energy bill and to charge your car up to six times cheaper with dynamic rates.

The Smappee App monitors your power consumption

The Smappee App allows you to use dynamic rates. You can activate different charging programs in the app and choose whether you want to charge at dynamic rates. With the app, you know exactly when your car is charging, when charging is paused due to a higher electricity price or higher power consumption by other devices in your house, and when charging is reactivated. It also shows you the rates at which you charged your car. And it also shows you how much electricity is coming from your solar panels.
