We would like to use the newsletter to describe each function of our charger in more detail. This time we made the electricity price exchange connection with aWATTar. A particularly clever function, as we find.
Because with aWATTar you can save on loading. The go-eCharger decides through the connection to the electricity price exchange and the information on service life and the desired amount of charge in which hours is loaded at best. The account balance but also the environment is happy about that. You can save up to 70% on the energy price with this feature.
The price of electricity is decided by nature.
Because it is cheaper when it is sunny or windy. The cheaper night rates, it looks a bit different: These come about by the lower demand during these hours.
With tariffs from aWATTar and a smart meter (intelligent electricity meter), the electricity price available on the electricity exchanges is available. This is significantly cheaper, for example, in the night hours than in the evening. But that’s not all: From time to time, there is so much power available in the network that you deserve when you shop. That is, aWATTar pays you to take the power off. The benefits of surplus electricity are not only economical, but also ecologically very elegant.
How does it work?
Register online at www.awattar.at (or www.awattar.de for Germany). If not already installed: download app for the go-eCharger. And let’s get started: When connected to the Internet, the go-eCharger automatically knows when it’s green and cheap via the aWATTar data interface. And that already the day before. At 2 pm aWATTar announces the prices for the next day. These are data from the EPEX Spot® Power Exchange. The data is transmitted in a machine-readable form by means of the electricity price API. Automatically charge solar and wind energy.
The use of this feature is now also possible in Germany and in the go-eCharger App selectable. Please contact us at any time if registration is required.
