How do I charge my EV with Amber?


Save with off-peak charging

Customers with EVs have a big opportunity to save by setting a timer to charge their EVs in the middle of the day or the middle of the night.

Wholesale prices are often much lower than typical retail prices during these times, because renewables are at their peak.

It’s a simple way to instantly lower the cost of your EV charging. You'll also know that your EV is powered by the highest possible proportion of energy from solar and wind rather than coal and gas.

Our price-based charging technology

We’re also working to develop our SmartShift technology to optimise your EV charger, as we have already done for home batteries.

Once developed, the technology will enable you to run your charger automatically when wholesale prices are at their lowest levels and energy is greener.
