1. What is EV Smart Charging and how does it work?

EV Smart Charging refers to a system that enables electric vehicle owners to charge their vehicles more efficiently and cost-effectively. The system uses data from the grid and the EV owner's usage patterns to optimize the charging process, reducing the overall cost of charging the EV by understanding when the charge should take place to check all boxes: low price, time to use the car, needed charging breaks.

Smart Charging, in essence, just means that the charge point is connected to the Internet, enabling it to be remotely controlled by Monta through the app. It helps optimize the charging process, reducing the overall cost of charging the EV.
