Samsara provides a comprehensive EV Charging Report to help administrators monitor charging behaviors and maximize the utilization of vehicles and minimize energy bills.
With this report, it will allow administrators to monitor the vehicles charging history throughout the day. This will help ensure charging is not occurring at peak hours, which can result in both the opportunity cost of vehicle utilization and a potential increase in one’s electricity bill. Given fleets aren’t always charging EVs at the same base, being able to find individual charging events and location allows monitoring when charging is happening outside of their yard so that employees can properly reimburse their employees. Given not all fleets have as many chargers as vehicles, optimizing charging schedules helps ensure that fleets are most efficiently monitoring their vehicles.

How it works
The report will show all charging events greater than 5 minutes for the given time period for a vehicle, including location and estimated last charge amount.
The total charge amount is calculated using the ingoing battery voltage and current reported by the car over the charging duration, as well as the GPS location of the charging event.
