Your Charge, Your Rules
With True Energy’s True Smart Charge, you can tailor your charging to match your needs and values.
When you want to charge with the cheapest possible electricity, we use the current electricity price data. The electricity prices vary daily and even hourly. The price is often highest when demand is highest. True Smart Charge times your charging to coincide with the lowest demand and price. For example, ensuring that your car automatically charges between 3 am and 5 am.
When you want to lower CO2 emissions, vi use electricity data to identify when as much electricity as possible comes from renewable energy sources such as windmills. Based on this data, True Smart Charge ensures that your charge automatically coincides with times when the CO2 costs of energy production are at their lowest.
Making a Big Difference With Little Effort
When you charge using True Smart Charge, you help create balance in the energy grid.
A balanced grid saves our climate, lowers CO2 emissions, and negates the need for expensive grid extension projects.
When many of us simultaneously charge our cars, start washing machines and watch TV, our combined electricity use can outstrip production.
This puts extra pressure on our energy grid, and extra, fossil-fuelled power plants are brought online to ensure everyone has enough electricity.
True Energy helps create balance in the grid by charging your electric car when there is enough capacity and by momentarily interrupting charging if it comes under extra pressure.
The charge interruptions seldomly last more than a couple of minutes, and you will not notice them at all.
Simultaneously, you are helping both our climate and the energy grid.
You find the app by searching for True Energy in your preferred app store or clicking the button below. The app is free to download and works with both iPhone and Android.
