The Herald reported on a new program implemented by York Electric Cooperative and others to help measure and manage the impact of EV charging on the grid:

“Optiwatt is an app that electric vehicle drivers use to manage charging. It automates charge times to reduce costs and strain on area power grids. The California-based company started in 2020 and now manages more than 60,000 vehicles across North America. Optiwatt works with about 500 vehicles in South Carolina, and about 100 in the greater Charlotte region.”
