Inaugurating an Era of Advanced EV Charging with the First Garo Entity Pro Installation, Exclusively Operated by KotiCharge in Finland.
This case underscores a pivotal advancement in providing innovative, efficient, and smart EV charging solutions to the residential sector.
- First Garo Entity Pro Charger in Isonnevantie
- Exclusive Operation by KotiCharge
- Spotlight: Spot-Price Invoicing and Smart Charging
KotiCharge and the Garo Entity Pro Installation on Isonnevantie were completed in collaboration with Herosähkö. KotiCharge, in partnership with Herosähkö, installed the charging system for housing communities located on Isonnevantie. In this installation, KotiCharge integrated the advanced Garo Entity Pro charging solution (GEP) into the charging devices. This marks the first time in Finland that GEP has been incorporated into an intelligent charging system. This advanced and energy-efficient charging control system is currently only available as part of a KotiCharge delivery.
Why was Garo Entity Pro chosen for this delivery?
GEP is an optimal application for point pricing invoicing, providing transparency in billing and electricity consumption.
KotiCharge, along with its charging control applications, combined with an incredibly efficient billing system, ensures timely and transparent operations. Currently, this advanced and efficient solution can only be obtained through KotiCharge deliveries.
This application closely monitors electricity consumption and prices, optimizing the state of the charging network. Electricity costs can be billed based on hourly rates if this function is enabled. By tracking hourly rates combined with energy consumption during the charging period, precise consumption-based billing can be established for each charging device. This forms the basis for billing. The accuracy of billing can also be verified in the mobile version of the application, where this information is visible on an hourly basis.
What Garo Entity Pro enables and what KotiCharge is committed to is adhering to the principles of intelligent and energy-efficient charging. To us, technology is a tool for success, and we want to make it available to our customers.
Smart Charging: A Commitment to Intelligent and Sustainable Charging
KotiCharge is not just a provider of charging devices; we offer a complete solution where the best charging features and charging network opportunities are harnessed for the benefit of our customers. User can schedule charging sessions with Smart Charging feature, especially in the case of market-priced electricity, during periods of lower electricity prices, thereby avoiding extra costs that could arise during peak price periods.
By scheduling charging during low-price periods and avoiding more expensive rate periods, significant savings can be achieved. However, users also have the option to select higher charging rates if other needs dictate. This controllability benefits electric vehicle owners and also stabilizes the electricity grid when charging occurs during periods of lower electricity consumption. This also allows for anticipating the costs of car charging.
Transparent Pricing: Clarity Without Surprises
Our pricing is based on (market electricity usage) Nordpool’s pricing (Nordpool link) and the price information available for the following day. This electricity price information guides the charging system and eliminates surprises in electricity usage. Naturally, the user is responsible for monitoring or controlling this information. At KotiCharge, our goal is to make electric vehicle charging easy and enjoyable, taking into account energy-efficient charging and the impact of electricity prices on our service users.
