As the world becomes more environmentally conscious, electric vehicles (EVs) are rapidly gaining popularity. However, charging an EV can be a complicated and expensive process sometimes. Fortunately, Synergi has created a solution to help EV owners save money, reduce their carbon footprint, and simplify their everyday charging. This blog post will explore the five most common reasons why people like you use Synergi today.
1. Saving money by automatically charging when electricity is cheap
One of the primary benefits of using Synergi is the ability to save money on your electricity bills. Using our smart charging software, your EV will automatically charge during the cheapest hours of the day, which can result in significant +50% savings over time. This feature is handy for people who charge their EVs with a spot-price contract at home, as electricity prices vary widely depending on the time of day.
For example, in the evenings, when there are usually higher during peak hours, charging your EV during these times could significantly increase your electricity bill. However, with Synergi, you can avoid these peak hours and charge your EV when energy is the cheapest, resulting in significant savings. To support our claims, you can read more about how one of our users saved +100€ in under two months with Synergi.
2. Worrying less about volatile electricity prices as we take care of optimization automatically
Electricity prices can be volatile and unpredictable, making planning for your EV charging schedules difficult. Fortunately, with Synergi, you can worry less about volatile electricity prices. Our smart charging software takes care of the optimization automatically, ensuring that your EV is charged at the most cost-effective times. This means hassle-free charging for you.
This feature is particularly useful for people who want to make the most of their spot-priced contracts or who want to avoid following electricity prices hourly – let us do it for you. By using Synergi, you can rest assured that you are getting the best possible price for your EV charging.
3. Charging during optimal times to keep the grid in balance
Another benefit of Synergi is the ability to charge your EV during optimal times to keep the grid in balance. The grid is the network of power stations, transmission lines, and distribution networks that supply electricity to homes and businesses. If too many people are using electricity at the same time, it can put a strain on the grid and result in power outages.
By using Synergi, you can help keep the grid in balance by charging your EV during off-peak hours. This helps reduce the strain on the grid and ensures everyone has access to the electricity they need.
4. Saving CO2 by charging when electricity is mainly coming from sustainable energy sources
Reducing our carbon footprint is essential to combat climate change, and using renewable energy sources is an effective way to achieve this. By using Synergi, you can help reduce your carbon footprint by charging your EV when electricity is mainly coming from renewables.
The transition of the economy from fossil fuels to renewable energy sources like wind and solar power is gaining momentum, as they offer a more sustainable alternative to traditional fuels. When you charge your electric vehicle with electricity predominantly generated from renewable sources, you play a vital role in reducing your carbon footprint and contributing towards a greener future.
5. Monitoring charging statistics
Finally, Synergi allows you to monitor your charging statistics, providing valuable insights into your charging habits. By tracking your charging habits, you can further identify opportunities to save money and reduce your carbon footprint.
Additionally and even more importantly for some users, Synergi enables you to track and monitor charging statistics. With Synergi, you can see your every charging session’s time, length, charged energy (kWh), and price (€). For example, some of our users use Synergi to report their charging to their housing cooperatives, whereas some use it to report their work-related charging costs to tax authorities. Lastly, it is, of course, insightful to learn how much charging at home costs.
In conclusion, there are many reasons why people like you are using Synergi today. Using our smart charging software, you can save money on your electricity bills, worry less about volatile electricity and track the prices of charging sessions.
