What is the purpose of a SmartCharge program?
SmartCharge programs collect charging information from electric vehicles (EVs) in an electric utility company service territory. This information is used to understand how EV charging affects the electric grid and provides insight into how they can better support their EV customers.
Why should I participate in a SmartCharge program?
By joining a SmartCharge program you will receive advanced data about your EV such as driving efficiency, greenhouse gas emissions and your vehicle’s overall battery health. Depending on the program in your area you may be eligible to earn additional rewards and incentives too.
How much does it cost?
These programs are funded in part or in whole by local utility companies. Information gathered by the program is crucial for helping them plan and measure the impact of EVs in their service territory.
