In this article, we are going to introduce a few tips on how to charge your EV greener, helping you minimize your carbon footprint and reducing your EV's demand on the grid.

  • Smart charging

Smart charging can help you collect and communicate data on your electricity usage and EV charging status. So that you can monitor and manage your EV's charging times. Also, there are chargers that can be connected to your phone so you can monitor your EV's battery status, set charging sessions, and even switch between energy sources. With smart charging, you can contribute to the environment as well as save some money. 

  • Solar energy

Driving an EV can decrease your carbon footprint immediately. And if you add solar energy to the mix can take you to a whole new level. Investing in renewable energy is one of the most eco-friendly ways to obtain electricity. This not only reduces reliance on non-renewable energy sources but also provides a clean and efficient way to charge EVs. 

  • Charge scheduling

More eco-friendly sources of electricity are generated during off-peak hours. It's also cheaper to charge your electric car during off-peak hours. You can use the smart feature on your EV charger and set a time to automatically charge during those hours.

  • Green energy tariffs

EV energy tariffs are specifically aimed at EV owners who use their home electricity to charge their cars. Most of these tariffs are powered by 100% renewable energy. Opting for a tariff that features a renewable energy promise is the greenest way to drive when considering lifecycle emissions.
