Solving the Case of EV Charging load
Before you can manage EV charging load, you need to better understand it. The only way to understand it is with data. EV charging load is unique to each service territory and will be influenced by things like climate, commuting patterns and electric vehicle specific market-share.
SmartCharge Homes explains the dangers of using studies created for other utilities and emphasizes why you need data to understand EVs.
Why it’s Electrification my dear Wattson.
