If you are placed in this group, charging data will be collected and charging will be controlled during specified “peak events.”
A “peak event” is when large amounts of electricity are being used by customers at the same time. Peak events usually occur during the winter months when the temperature is cold and customers are at home using electricity like heating their homes, turning on appliances, and charging EVs.
If you are in this group, you will receive SMS (text) and email notifications in advance of peak events. During peak events, your vehicle’s charging will temporarily pause to reduce electricity consumption. At the end of the peak event your vehicle will continue charging as normal. Peak events are typically short in duration, leaving plenty of time in the overnight period to ensure your EV is charged up as usual.
How do you benefit? You enjoy a charged vehicle as usual and earn monthly $10 participation rewards. You can also feel good knowing you’re helping reduce demand on the electricity system.
Want to opt-out of a peak event? You can. But if you opt out of three or more peak events in a calendar month, you will not receive the monthly reward.
