Set a Charger's Pricing Schedule

Follow These Steps to Set Up a Charger's Pricing Schedule

One of the primary features of the AmpedUp! Networks CSMS is the ability to charger EV drivers for charging sessions. AmpedUp! makes it simple by providing a flexible interface for defining the specific pricing rate, type, and schedule needed, then applying it to specific chargers.

NOTE: Not all described features are available for Share and Small Biz subscription types.

The following steps assume that you have:

Define a Pricing Schedule

From the main navigation menu, choose Subscription, then Pricing Schedule. The Pricing Schedules screen will be displayed.
From the Pricing Schedules screen, choose the Add Pricing Schedule button to open the Add Pricing Schedule screen.
From here, you can apply a name, default rate, default idle fee, and the schedule of the pricing schedule.

Enter a pricing schedule name. Be sure to provide a name that allows easy identification of the schedule as it will be used later when applying the schedule to a charging station.
Enter the Default Rate information. The rate can be defined in cents (ie: "0.34"). The rate type can be defined by kWh, time period (minutes, hours), flat (fixed amount), or free. Maximum time can be defined where the charging session will end after a defined set of time.

NOTE: Default Rates apply when no Daily Schedules are defined.
Enter the Default Idle Fee information (optional). An idle fee is the fee applied to a charging session when a driver does not unplug (leave the parking spot) after the charging session has completed. A grace period can be set whereby the driver has a certain amount of time once the session is completed to unplug and leave the parking spot before idle fees begin to assess.

Enter the rate, rate type, and grace period of the default Idle fee.
Enter Daily Schedules (optional). A Daily Schedule allows you to define different rates and rate types for different days of the week and/or different times during the day. This is useful for charging higher rates during busier times of the week or day.

NOTE: Up to 7 daily schedules can be defined (one for each day of the week).

Enable the Daily Schedule toggle button to present the schedule options;
Choose the days of the week that the schedule will apply, then choose the All Day toggle button to set the time the rate applies to all day.
Enter the rate, rate type, maximum session time (optional), and idle fee (optional) information that applies to the selected days of the week.
If the schedule requires different rates for different times of the day, press the Add New Time button to add another time slot.
If the schedule requires different rates for other days, choose the Add Schedule option.
When complete, press the Save button to save the schedule and return to the Pricing Schedules screen.

Apply a Pricing Schedule to a Charger

From the main menu, select Chargers, then choose the charger to which you wish to apply a pricing schedule. The Edit Charger screen will be displayed.
From the Edit Charger screen, enable the Pricing Schedule option, then choose a pre-defined pricing schedule from the list.

Press the Save button to save the adjustments.
