We are excited to launch a pilot program, SmartCharge MVEA, for members who own an electric vehicle (EV). Participants, with compatible EVs, receive a $100 incentive upon device installation and activation for the 12-month program. The device is easy to install, with one-click, and helps pinpoint consumption on the grid.
Why are we doing this?
- Understand how/when/where EV owners charge their vehicles for system impact planning and other research purposes.
- Measure the current and forecast the future impact of EV charging load on the grid.
- Understand the shape and timing of EV charging load and peak coincidence across different vehicle models, commuter profiles, and seasons.
- Understand the potential system-wide EV charging load implications and the potential cost savings through managed EV charging.
In order to receive the $100 incentive, be one of the first 35 members accepted after registration and self-install and activate the SmartCharge device. The monetary participation reward is distributed via PayPal deposit by FleetCarma.
