Moscow, April 15 – Experts from the National Technology Initiative (NTI) told the News Agency that owners of electric cars who want to save on charging should charge them at night or use special points that provide free charging as part of special state projects.
According to Aleksey Motorenko, CEO of Yablochkov (a market participant of NTI Energinet), most electric car owners around the world charge most of their cars’ energy at night, from a conventional outlet.
“All electric cars or chargers, even for the simplest home use, have a charging time control mode, therefore, when the night rate, depending on the region, is 1-2-3 rubles per kilowatt, you can set the settings so that they are done,” Motorenko said. Always charge the car only at night, which means a lot of savings.”

The expert confirmed that in this case it is possible to charge 28 kWh in 8 hours, and this is a power reserve of 150-200 km. “Any daily urban commute for a non-commercial electric vehicle owner will suffice,” he said, adding that fast charging outlets mostly charge on long-distance weekend trips.
“A resident of the capital, for example, pays 4.5-6.43 rubles / kWh on a single-tariff meter in 2023, and when using a multi-tariff meter, the cost of electricity at night drops to 2.09-2.98 rubles / kWh – a double difference!
Only in Moscow, he said, depending on the category of residents, type of building, purpose of infrastructure, time of day and other criteria, 42 electricity tariffs are in effect in 2023. Therefore, it is important to study the electricity tariffs established in the field of consumption, including at night.
Yuriukov noted that a number of government measures and projects are aimed at developing electric transport. Among them, the expert noted the Energy of Moscow project, which allows hundreds of street terminals to charge the battery for free. “Hence the conclusion – carefully study the nuances of utility policies and social programs. It depends on this where it is more profitable to charge an electric vehicle in a given area. Sometimes it is a home station, sometimes it is a public network, “the expert concluded.
