Under the influence of high temperature weather, the electricity load of many provinces has repeatedly hit new highs. In order to ensure the safe operation of the power grid during peak electricity consumption, thehas piloted the implementation of off-peak charging of in some high-temperature and high-load provinces.
The first batch of pilot projects are in Chongqing, Zhejiang, and Hubei, covering nearly 350,000 charging piles. During the peak period of electricity consumption from 3:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. At the same time, State Grid will also issue a 50% discount coupon for charging service fees through the mobile phone charging client to guide electric vehicle owners to charge at low times such as at night.
Qu Xianjun, deputy general manager of State Grid Smart Vehicle Networking Technology Company: The three provinces and cities involved in off-peak charging have nearly 800,000 electric vehicles. If charging is concentrated during peak hours, it will increase the grid load by 2 million kilowatts. Equivalent to the electricity load of more than 300,000 households. If load regulation and off-peak power consumption measures are taken, the security of the power grid will be guaranteed, and the electricity demand of people’s livelihood will be better guaranteed.
According to reports, staggering and avoiding peak charging and reducing the charging power will appropriately extend the charging time. One charge will be extended by up to 5 to 6 minutes. The State Grid will give a certain discount on the charging service fee. According to statistics, the number of electric vehicles in the country has exceeded 10 million, and each vehicle is equivalent to a small mobile energy storage power station. The scope plays the role of the “power sponge” of electric vehicles, stabilizes the operation of the power grid, and ensures the safe supply of electricity.
