Electric Vehicle Smart Charging trial by AGL Next

Conductor

Hi
Just trying to find out if I can qualify for this program as I am on the VPP in SA.
Does this disqualify me?

When will people be selected for this trial? 

 

Thanks kindly

Brett

Hi @Stephen2Aus 

 

Apologies for the radio silence! There are still a few hoops that need to be jumped through before we are able to launch the V2G phase of the trial. I will do my best to communicate an update to all customers who have expressed interest in joining that stream of the trial shortly. 


Essentially there are regulatory and electrical standards hurdles which need to be overcome that have caused a bit of a set back.

 

I apologise for keeping you hanging on. I know there are a lot of customers (and AGL folks alike) who are keen to get the V2G trial off the ground ASAP.

 

Cheers

Cheers @liam1 🙂

I've been hearing regulatory problems for the V2G chargers in Australia since I started looking mid last year!  Must be a nightmare...

 

Keep it up, and look forward to hearing from you soon 👍

Just an update. Everything has been going well so far. 
Chargefox has enabled (around the first week of July) the capability of monitoring and stopping the charging via the Chargefox app. 

There’s no ability to start charging (after stopping via the app) or doing any scheduling yet. 
I raised this with Chargefox and the support rep said that it’s in the pipeline. 

Here’s some screenshots from the Chargefox app:

There’s now a “My Charge Stations” when you click on the “Menu” in the app.

When you select that, it shows information on your Charge Station.

You can also see your previous charging sessions under “Charge history”
