Our Smart charging trial is now live and you can register your interest to be added to it in this form.
If you sign up to this trial and you’re eligible you’ll get to test the charger for free for 3 months and after that we can give you a £250 discount on a new EV charger via Bulb Store (coming soon!)
We’re carrying out a research project with EDMI meters to understand whether the smart meter network can be used to control EV chargers - a process known as load control. This could help the transition to a renewable national grid that supports the growing number of EVs in the UK. The research project is funded by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS).
Smart charging uses the signals from your smart meter to charge your car when the grid is cheapest and greenest, and you can control this all from the Bulb app.
We’ve installed our first handful of EV chargers. The feedback has been really positive so far on the installation process. Thanks to @Duffrynboy who said the installation team did ‘a great job’ on installing their charger.
We’re targeting 100 installations by December and are delighted to be 10% of the way there.
