Information about SmartCharge New York

 

Con Edison and FleetCarma have developed SmartCharge New York in order to learn more about light-duty battery electric vehicles and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (“EVs”) that are being charged in the Con Edison Service Territory and to learn more about the EV driving and charging patterns and preferences of EV drivers.  As a Participant in the Program, you will be provided with a FleetCarma C2 vehicle logger device (“C2 Device”) for installation in the on-board diagnostics port (“OBD II Port”) of your EV, or, in the case of Teslas, in the proprietary diagnostics connector.  Applicants with more than one EV are eligible to apply for more than one C2 Device. Participants will also earn cash equivalent rewards known as “SmartCharge RewardsTM” for correctly installing and activating the C2 Device; and, thereafter, upon taking certain actions that facilitate the goals of the Program, such as charging EVs at certain times in the Con Edison Service Territory, referring others to the Program and completing surveys. Please see the section entitled “How to Earn SmartCharge RewardsTM” for more details.

 

During and after your participation in the Program, you may be asked to participate in follow up surveys, studies, audits, evaluations or verifications conducted by FleetCarma or Con Edison or their agents or service providers in connection with the Program.  While we hope that you choose to participate in these surveys, your participation will be completely voluntary.

 

Participants will be able to view certain data collected by their installed and activated C2 Device and track their SmartCharge RewardsTM through personal log-in access to the FleetCarma SmartCharge RewardsTM portal (the “Portal” or the “SmartCharge Rewards Portal”).  In order to log into the Portal, Participants must have access to a computer, smartphone or other mobile device with internet access.

 

 

 

The C2 Device

 

Participants should expect to receive C2 Devices (free of charge) in the mail within approximately ten (10) business days of acceptance into the Program. Installation and activation instructions will accompany C2 Devices, and both installation and activation are necessary prior to Participants earning SmartCharge RewardsTM.

 

The C2 Device is installed by plugging it into the OBD II Port of any supported battery electric vehicle or plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (or, in the case of a Tesla, by plugging into its proprietary diagnostics connector).  Participants with a Tesla will also receive (free of charge) a special adapter that is needed to install the C2 Device in a Tesla. The list of currently supported vehicle models is listed at fleetcarma.com/smartchargenewyork/setup. Participants are responsible for installation and activation of the C2 Device. If you require any assistance with locating the OBD II Port, Tesla’s proprietary diagnostics connector, or need installation directions, please refer to the installation instructions available at fleetcarma.com/smartchargenewyork/setup or contact us at smartchargenewyork@fleetcarma.com.

 

FleetCarma and Con Edison will not be held responsible for data losses or rewards losses resulting from over-the-air software updates to vehicles from the vehicle manufacturer. FleetCarma will make every reasonable attempt to make the C2 Device compatible with changes made by manufacturers of vehicles on our supported list, but cannot guarantee whether compatibility will be possible or timely following a change by the manufacturer.

 

At the sole discretion of FleetCarma and depending on the EV model, certain Participants may be offered Concierge Installation Services through a third-party professional installation service company. The Concierge Installation Service Technician will perform the installation of the C2 Device to a Participant’s vehicle, following instructions and training provided by FleetCarma. Instructions for booking an installation appointment will be provided once a Participant is accepted to participate in SmartCharge New York. These instructions must be followed to secure an appointment slot. Fees for missed installation appointments may be taken from a Participant’s rewards in accordance with the instruction document provided in the package shipped with the C2 Device.

 

Data Collected by the C2 Device and Privacy

 

In order to conduct the Program and to provide Participants with the products and services outlined in this Agreement and appropriate customer service, and to enhance and improve these products and services, FleetCarma will collect certain information through the C2 Device. The C2 Device installed in an EV will record when the C2 Device is plugged into, and unplugged from, the EV and it will also collect the following information:

 

(a) About your EV – VIN or Vehicle Identification Number, and EV make, model and model year;

 

(b) About your driving – drive start date and time, duration of trip, trip distance, EV state of charge at start of drive, EV state of charge at end of drive, electricity consumed during drive, liquid fuel consumed during drive (if EV is a hybrid vehicle), % idling, % hard acceleration, % hard braking, electric miles fraction (if EV is a plug-in hybrid electric vehicle, the % of miles the car ran on electric), ambient temperature, average auxiliary load during trip;

 

(c)  About your charging patterns – for each charging session (for which a session number will be assigned) – start date and time, duration of charging session, charging power level (kW), total charging energy (total electricity consumed in kWh), 15-minute interval charging energy (kwh), charging loss (electricity lost due to charging efficiency in kWh), starting state of charge, ending state of charge, GPS coordinates of where the charging session occurred;

 

(d) Calculations – watt hours/mile, miles per gallon equivalent (MPGe), total electricity consumed, greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and savings, battery state of health (i.e., the degree of ability of the high-voltage battery to accept and discharge electricity).

 

A subset of the collected data outlined above will be used to populate an online dashboard made available for Participants to view in the SmartCharge Rewards Portal so that Participants can monitor EV charging and driving history. Some data will also be available for download.

 

FleetCarma and Con Edison will have access to all collected data.

Information that is collected through the C2 Device will be erased from the device once the information is transferred to FleetCarma.  The data collected by the C2 Device is encrypted when transmitted to FleetCarma servers.  Personally identifiable data will also be encrypted when sent by FleetCarma to Con Edison.

In addition to the data listed above, we will collect the information that you provide on your application to the Program and any surveys or other evaluations in connection with the Program that you choose to complete and submit during your participation in the Program. This data will also be encrypted when sent by FleetCarma to Con Edison.

How to Participate in the SmartCharge New York Program

 

If you wish to participate in SmartCharge New York, you must do the following:

 

Complete an application form which can be found at https://www.FleetCarma.com/smartchargenewyork.  The SmartCharge RewardsTM system will review your application to confirm eligibility and confirm your acceptance via email. FleetCarma will send one C2 Device for each accepted vehicle in your application to the shipping address indicated on your application together with instructions for installation and activation of the C2 Device.  If accepted, you should receive the C2 Device(s) within approximately ten (10) business days from the date of your application.

C2 Device(s) must be activated and installed before data can be collected and before a Participant can earn any SmartCharge RewardsTM.  You are encouraged to install the C2 Device within one (1) week (seven (7) days) of delivery of the C2 Device.  If you do not activate and/or install the C2 Device(s) within seven (7) days of receipt, you will receive a notice, via email, reminding you to install and activate the C2 Device.  You may be considered to be withdrawn from the Program if you do not install and activate your C2 Device within four (4) weeks of receipt. If you decide not to install and activate the C2 Device, we may ask that you return the C2 Device so that it may be provided to another Participant.  Please email smartchargenewyork@fleetcarma.com to arrange receipt of a pre-paid return label for free return shipment of the C2 Device.

 

 

 

Withdrawal from the Program and Expected Duration of the Program

 

Your participation in SmartCharge New York is completely voluntary so you are free to withdraw from the Program at any time.  To withdraw from the Program, remove the C2 Device from your EV and notify FleetCarma of your withdrawal at smartchargenewyork@fleetcarma.com.   You are not obligated to return any C2 Device that has been activated or installed into your vehicle.

 

If you decide to sell or replace the vehicle that you are using to participate in SmartCharge New York, then you must immediately notify Fleetcarma at smartchargenewyork@fleetcarma.com. The C2 Device must be removed from the vehicle before transferring ownership. If you wish to continue participating in the Program with your new plug-in electric vehicle, then please follow the instructions in the section below, “Can the C2 Device be Transferred to Another Vehicle?”

 

For each month that you do not charge an EV with a properly installed C2 Device in the Con Edison Service Territory, you will receive an email inquiring about your continued interest in participating in the Program.  If you do not charge an EV with a properly installed C2 Device in the Con Edison Service Territory for three (3) consecutive months, you will be deemed to have withdrawn from the Program.

 

Con Edison expects SmartCharge New York to continue at least until December 31, 2019, and it may continue beyond that date.  However, Con Edison reserves the right to terminate the Program at any time for any reason or for no reason and even though such termination may affect your ability to earn SmartCharge RewardsTM.  Participants will have access to the Portal for ninety (90) days after the Program terminates.

 

Once the Program terminates or a Participant withdraws from the Program, continued collection of data from the EV(s) in which a C2 Device(s) is installed will stop within fifteen (15) days after termination or withdrawal in order to protect the privacy of Participants.

 

A Participant who withdraws from the Program voluntarily or is deemed to have withdrawn will continue to have post-termination access to the Portal for ninety (90) days.  Once a Participant no longer has access to the Portal, the Participant will no longer have the ability to view previously recorded data from their EV or SmartCharge RewardsTM redemption codes and links.

 

In addition to the above, Con Edison and FleetCarma, by sending an email notice to the Participant, reserve the right to terminate immediately participation in the Program due to any fraudulent activity or actions in violation of these Terms and Conditions.  This type of termination may result in a Participant’s immediate loss of access to the Portal.

 

Can the C2 Device be Transferred to Another Vehicle?

 

Pending approval from the SmartCharge New York support team, you may be eligible to transfer the C2 Device to another EV during your participation in the Program as long as the substitute vehicle is an EV that is owned or leased by the same SmartCharge RewardsTM account holder as the previous vehicle, and the substitute vehicle is supported by FleetCarma. The C2 Device will attempt to identify the new vehicle’s VIN and update the SmartCharge RewardsTM account with the information on the new vehicle. If you wish to transfer your C2 Device to a new EV, then prior to installation you should contact smartchargenewyork@fleetcarma.com and provide your new EV’s make, model, and year and verify that the vehicle is supported.

 

Installation and Activation Bonus

 

The $150 installation and activation bonus is awarded when the following three (3) conditions are met: 1) the C2 Device is installed in a supported vehicle, 2) the C2 Device is activated in the SmartCharge Rewards Portal, and 3) one charge event in the Con Edison service territory has been logged. The bonus will appear in the rewards tab on the 15th of the following month in which the first in territory charge is logged.

 

How to Earn SmartCharge RewardsTM

 

During the Program, SmartCharge RewardsTM are earned on a per-vehicle basis by charging at particular times or engaging in other activities like completing a survey or referring a friend. SmartCharge RewardsTM will begin to be calculated and accrued once the C2 Device is installed and activated in the SmartCharge Rewards Portal.
