I can think of a couple of other, perhaps less important, reasons to use value charging:
1) Charge at night when it is cooler, to put less strain on the system (this might not be real, but I notice when I charge in the late afternoon in the heat, the car fan runs continuously, vs charging at night when it is cool).
2) Charge at night when demand is lower, hence putting less stress on the power grid.
2a) If you have an older house, charge at night when your useage is lower, hence putting less stress on your electrical system (some older houses don't have power systems that are designed for such high loads at the same time).
