Waterloo, Ontario: FleetCarma is proud to announce the launch of SmartCharge Mississippi, a new electric vehicle (EV) pilot program in partnership with Mississippi Power (Southern Company). This one-year profiling study will set out to better understand how EVs are driving and charging in Mississippi.
Participating EV drivers will receive a telematics device, which is easy-to-install and collects charging data directly from the vehicle. This anonymized data, which includes where and when EVs charge, will be analyzed to better understand how EVs impact their existing infrastructure and provide insights for future offers for EV customers.
Enrolled participants will receive $25 for joining the program, $5 a month for continuing to participate and $25 for completing the full year. Participants will also get access to a data rich portal that provides information about their EV, such as driving efficiency, battery health, GHG emissions and more.
“Electric transportation allows Mississippi Power customers the ability to reduce their environmental impact, minimize cost and increase the efficiency of their vehicle. Understanding how and where our customers are using electric vehicles will help us serve them better in the future.” Rose Ann Pegoda, Marketing team leader at Mississippi Power
