SmartCharge Nashville is planning for wider EV adoption.

Help prepare our city for more electric vehicles.

Potential EV drivers are often worried about range – how far can they drive before needing a charge? Utilities want to prepare the electric system for a future filled with electric vehicles, but wonder what they should do to prepare? SmartCharge Nashville wants to answer these questions and they need you, an EV driver already, to help.

How you can help.

Help plan for the adoption of EVs. Participation is easy, fast, and it pays.

1. Join

Take one minute to sign up, and you’re already helping.

2. Connect

You’ll receive a C2 device which clips into your EV. It’s like a fitness monitor for your car.

3. Charge

Drive and charge as normal. There’s nothing to fill out or report on.

4. Thank You

Stay plugged into the program for the full two years (Until Oct. 2020), and you’ll receive $100.

Why you should join.

Join our mission to help make EV charging convenient throughout Nashville.

Conduct large vehicle research studies with the ability to deploy devices anywhere.
Pave the way for world-class EV infrastructure

Let’s make it easier for anyone to get into an electric vehicle.

The FleetCarma C2 data logger will help SmartCharge Nashville see where EV charging stations are needed. The device plugs right into your EV unlocking powerful information about your vehicles charger and battery use, which you’ll be able to see, too.

We’re asking 200 Nashville electric vehicle owners to help pave the way for world-class EV infrastructure. Will you join us?

  • Ensure the power system is ready for wide-scale EV charging.
  • Plug in the C2 device and go, you’re already helping.
  • Anonymized data will be used to plan upgrades.
Use the vehicle research tool that was built by vehicle researchers
It’s like a fitness monitor for your car

You’ll also have access to your EV’s charging data.

Just like your vehicle’s dashboard tells you about speed, battery charge, and more, the online dashboard will provide you with information on charging habits and energy consumption. You’ll even be able to estimate the amount of greenhouse gases you’re saving by using your EV. It goes without saying that your information is secure, anonymized and private.

  • Dashboards of your vehicle’s performance.
  • Calculate the amount of greenhouse gas you’ve helped reduce.
  • Monitor EV battery state of health.
Stay in the program and earn

Since you’re doing all the driving, we’ll help pay our fare.

Participants will receive $50 after the first six months of participation and another $50 after one year of participation. The C2 device is discreet and goes unnoticed by most drivers. So the only catch, keeping the C2 plugged in, shouldn’t be a problem.

  • Receive $50 each year.
  • Get incentives for your participation and support.
  • Win, win for driving and charging as usual.

Now is the time to plan for an increase in EV adoption, and you can directly influence what that looks like. In the end, you’ll be creating a better EV experience for everyone in Nashville, including yourself, and helping more people get behind the wheel of an electric vehicle.
