2. Our Intelligent Charging Service
What is the Intelligent Charging Service?
When we talk about our Intelligent Charging Service, we’re referring to the process by which we enable you to optimise your energy consumption when charging your Honda e using your at-home charging device, as installed by Local Heroes, in conjunction with a variable rate energy tariff.
Smart charging works when your Honda e is connected to your recently installed charging device, and the power provided to your Honda e is controlled by your charging device. Our intelligent charging allows you to specify your preferred charging parameters (e.g. time of day) via the e:PROGRESS Application (the App) and our intelligent software then manages the charging of your Honda e to best reduce the cost of charging your vehicle.
You acknowledge that the savings advertised on our website are the average savings made by a customer when your Honda e is plugged in at your home address.
What are the requirements for the Intelligent Charging Service?
In order for us to provide the Intelligent Charging Service, you will need to have a Honda e vehicle, a compatible energy supply tariff, and a compatible charge point as well as access to the My Honda + and e:PROGRESS apps. You can read more about these requirements on the e:PROGRESS website.
What’s involved in our Intelligent Charging Service?
Our Intelligent Charging Service consists of the following components:
Installed in your electric vehicle charger is a SIM card which enables a connection to be established between the charge point and the charging operator. The cost of transferring the data that is used to communicate between the charge point and the charging operator in order to provide the optimisation is included in your subscription.
By subscribing to our Intelligent Charging Service, you will have access to the App, which is available to download on iOS and Android devices. We recommend that you read the Mobile Application User Terms and Conditions and Privacy Notice in advance of using the App.
The App allows you to input information about your schedule and preferences which will be used to generate an optimised charging plan for your electric vehicle. If you need your electric vehicle charged for a certain time, you can use the App in order to override the existing user preferences.
As part of your subscription to our Intelligent Charging Service, you will have access to our helpdesk for support in relation to the Intelligent Charging Service. If you need support, you can contact us using the details set out in Section 6 below.
Your charging device will be periodically updated to the latest firmware released by the manufacturer of the charging device. We are not responsible for the physical maintenance or installation of your charging device.
Our Intelligent Charging Service will help you optimise your charging behaviour based on your tariff and schedule. By subscribing to our Intelligent Charging Service you will be able to charge your electric vehicle using the lowest priced electricity available in that time on your tariff. For more information on optimisation please visit www.honda-eprogress.co.uk.
Your charging behaviour will be optimised based on your tariff and schedule (that you will need to enter into the App) – our software will determine the optimal time to charge your electric vehicle based on these factors.
The charging device will then deliver energy to the electric vehicle at the optimal times to charge, at the optimal rate, depending on the preferences you selected.
To enable optimisation, you will need to provide your MPAN number to us so that we can link each customer with their respective tariff code.
Our Intelligent Charging Services does not include the installation and maintenance of your charge point as this is covered separately by your charge point installer, British Gas or the installation of a smart meter and switch to an alternative tariff, as this is covered by your tariff provider, Octopus Energy.
3. Your subscription to the Intelligent Charging Service
Annual Subscription Fee
The cost of our Intelligent Charging Service (which includes VAT) will be the price indicated on the signup page when you subscribe to the Intelligent Charging Service or will be communicated to you by us (the Annual Subscription Fee). All prices quoted are in Pounds Sterling and may be subject to change (for example, if the rate of VAT changes, we will update the Annual Subscription Fee to reflect any increase or decrease). We will always let you know in advance of any changes in our fees and will give you the opportunity to decide whether you want to continue using our Intelligent Charging Service.
Subscription to our Intelligent Charging Service will be free of charge for the initial 12 months from signup (the First Year) and you will then be charged the Annual Subscription Fee for a period of 12 months following the First Year. Payment will be taken at the start of each 12 month period and, unless cancelled in accordance with Section 7 or Section 8, your subscription will automatically renew for successive periods of 12 months, (the Renewal Period). You will receive a notification at least 15 days before the end of the First Year and each subsequent Renewal Period letting you know that your subscription will renew. By subscribing to our Intelligent Charging Service you are agreeing to pay the recurring Annual Subscription Fee for the Renewal Period until cancelled by you (see Section 7) or by us (see Section 8). You can re-subscribe at any time within 6 months following your cancellation, but we reserve the right not to permit re-subscription where we have previously elected to terminate a subscription by you. If your services have been disabled for a period of greater than six (6) months, there may be a cost associated with re-enabling them. If payment is unsuccessful in relation to any Renewal Period, we or our payment provider will inform you that payment has not been made. We will attempt to take payment up to four times in three weeks, after which if payment has still not been successful your subscription will be cancelled and you will no longer be entitled to use our Intelligent Charging Service.
What is included in the Annual Subscription Fee?
The Annual Subscription Fee covers all elements of our Intelligent Charging Service including data connectivity, support and maintenance.
We accept all major debit and credit cards including Visa, Mastercard, Maestro, Carte Bleue and American Express payment cards.
After completing the subscription form you will receive an acknowledgment email from email@example.com, including a link to download the App, instructions for registration and your unique Charger ID that you will need to complete their registration. The contract between us will only be formed when we send you this email.
By providing a debit card or other payment method accepted by us, you represent and warrant that you are authorised to use the designated payment method and that you authorise us (or our third-party payment processor) to charge your payment method for the subscription price (including any applicable taxes and other charges). If the payment method you provide cannot be verified, is invalid or is otherwise not acceptable, your subscription may be suspended or cancelled. You must resolve any problem we encounter in order to proceed with your subscription.
4. How do you access and use the Intelligent Charging Service?
When you subscribe to our Intelligent Charging Service you will need to download the App and have an existing user account with the My Honda+ app. The login details for your [My Honda+] user account will be used to log into the Honda e:PROGRESS App.
You must keep your Account login details confidential. You are responsible for all activities that occur under your Account.
All information you input into your Account or the App including any schedule information must be accurate at all times – the optimisation aspect of our Intelligent Charging Service relies on the data you input and so we cannot be responsible for any variation in the Intelligent Charging Service based on incorrect data.
You can create charge schedules based on your daily routine and monitor the charging of your electric vehicle. Please be aware that the App may automatically update a charge profile if it determines that the charge schedule you have chosen is not achievable within the given timeframe. Cost based charging schedules will only apply when you are using a time-of-use electricity tariff at the charging point.
