Access to SmartShift™ is free for the first 12 months, as we are still in the beta rollout.
We are not yet sure if we will charge for SmartShift™. If/when we do - we will simply be looking to cover our costs and it will likely, therefore, be a small monthly subscription fee similar to your Amber subscription. If we do go ahead with charging for the SmartShift™ service, the charge will only be added after your first 12 months. We will be sure to let our participating customers know before we add any charges to your bill, and you have NO obligation to continue.
At the end of the 12 months, you have the option to stay on or leave the program. We will not charge you without giving you the opportunity to decide whether to stay with the program or not. Hopefully, by this time, we will have demonstrated significant savings and made it feasible to charge a very small monthly fee to simply cover our costs - however, we will certainly be using the results of the program to determine this.
We are fortunate to have had the support of the SA government to co-fund this for the duration of this program. And we are certainly grateful to everyone who supports us in launching the program to get the data we need to demonstrate that we can do better for our planet with this technology!
