Utility companies charge different rates at different times of day. An uncontrolled charging strategy, simply charging electric vehicles as soon as they return to a facility, puts companies at the mercy of the utility’s rate schedule. Smart control can significantly reduce EV charging costs when shifted to less expensive charging time.
