Have you taken advantage of off-peak power savings by using timers on appliances?

Corey: “We utilised the online app that comes with the Smart EV Charger to set a timer to only charge the EV battery from 12am-5am, which usually is enough to fully charge the 24kWh Nissan Leaf, meaning we can take advantage of off-peak savings.”

Will: “We use the washing machine and dishwasher at night to take advantage of off-peak power rates. Remembering to set timers and delay switches can be an issue. We try to remember to set the timers/delays before heading off to bed, 11pm onwards (off-peak rate time are 11pm-7am) and we’re getting better at it now.”
