Zero-Carbon Electric Vehicle Charging

icon of switch indicating that the pilot is currently active

The goal of this project is to minimize the carbon intensity of the energy that goes into powering electric vehicles (EVs), while making EVs more affordable by reducing the cost to charge at home.

The pilot was delivered in partnership with ev.energy, a Palo Alto-based firm whose software optimizes EV charging schedules around a number of dynamic variables, including renewable energy generation, energy costs, grid constraints and customer preference.

Over 80 vehicles participated in the smart charging pilot. The GridShift: EV Charging app is now a full-scale program available to all SVCE customers.
