Set Your Own Utility Rate for ChargePoint Home

The ChargePoint app allows electric vehicle drivers to select their utility plan to find out the best time to plug in and get accurate home charging costs to save you money. The plans you can select on the ChargePoint app are usually correct but, sometimes we don’t have the latest rate information for every utility plan. The steps below will show you how to choose your plan and, if the information is incorrect, how to manually set your own utility rate.
