A quick update on the latest goings-on with our Pure Planet EVs pilot.
Since we shared some of the data from Members’ driving patterns we’ve started work behind the scenes on building some EV-specific services for you.
We’re working on a tariff, of course, as well as partnerships for home charger installations and public ‘on the road’ charging.
And we’ve also got some exciting EV and smart home related news to announce soon, so watch this space!
Right now there’s two things to share.
Firstly, thanks to our smart meter (2nd generation) installations getting back up to speed, following a pause during the first months of the Covid-19 pandemic, we’re able to start taking half-hourly readings from Members of the EV pilot.
With this data we can start to model different EV tariffs, to see how much it will cost and how many savings you’ll make, and of course how we can balance demand/performance.
Secondly, thanks to your input, we’ve been designing some new EV information pages and tools for the Pure Planet website.
They’re not live yet, but here’s a sneak peek at what’s coming, including an EV comparison tool.
If you’ve offered to help test the new web pages, and haven’t heard from us yet, you may well be getting an email soon!
That’s it for now! Thaks for checking out.
