By participating in OptimizEV, you’ll help to create a more sustainable future and earn incentives, simply by adopting a smart electric vehicle (EV) charging routine that shifts the bulk of your charging to off-peak times to help balance the electrical grid and drive down energy costs.
OptimizEV offers two tiers of participation, so you can select the option that best suits your home EV charging routine.
In the Baseline Tier, you will receive a one-time enrollment incentive of $25.00 and monthly on-going incentives when you shift 80% or more of your home charging to off peak times.
In the Advanced Tier, you will receive a one-time enrollment incentive of $150.00 for scheduling smart charging sessions that includes the amount of charge you need and when you need it by, and allowing us to manage the amount of electricity your EV receives during scheduled charging sessions for maximum benefit to the grid. You’ll earn monthly incentives simply by sticking to your scheduled charging sessions.
Regardless of the tier you choose, you’ll enroll, participate, and receive insightful feedback via our easy-to-use web portal or mobile app hosted by our technology partner ev.energy.
