Charging at home is very convenient and I am willing to do it off hours if it saves money and reduces strain on the grid.

It’s great to get rebates from the SmartCharge program and also know I’m doing my part to decrease peak loads on the system.

SmartCharge Rewards is a connected car EV platform that allows organizations and individuals to gather useful data insights from electric vehicles while also rewarding EV drivers for participation in utility EV programs using SmartCharge Rewards.

Accepted participants will create a SmartCharge account and connect their Tesla vehicle account. By connecting to your Tesla account, your vehicle information will be collected and transmitted into the SmartCharge portal and will be used by SmartCharge Rewards and Eversource to understand EV charging impacts on the grid. In return for your participation you will earn a $50 reward for enrolling your vehicle, and then $0.05/kWh for off-peak charging (11:00 PM – 7:00 AM) from July 1 – September 30, and $0.03/kWh for off-peak charging all other months. Plus, from July – September you can earn an extra $10 bonus each month you avoid charging during times of highest demand (5:00 PM – 8:00 PM)

You are eligible if you own or lease a Tesla electric vehicle and you are an Eversource customer that typically charges your vehicle within the Massachusetts Eversource service territory and you are eligible for Eversource demand response incentives (customers served by Cape Light Compact for energy efficiency and demand response are not eligible).

A conventional hybrid operates only on gasoline. A plug-in hybrid electric vehicle can be connected to an external electric source to charge its battery. If your vehicle can be plugged in, you may be eligible to join the Eversource Connected Solutions program.

You’ll earn 50,000 points (equivalent to $50 in rewards) when you install, connect to your Tesla account and complete the first charge session in the Eversource service territory. Enrollment bonus payments will begin at the end of April 2021. The program accepts up to two electric vehicles so please be sure to include all of your electric vehicles in the application to ensure you receive the maximum reward!

Qualified participants will be able to redeem rewards for cash deposits into a PayPal account on a monthly basis. Setup your PayPal account here.

If you do not have PayPal, you will receive an electronic Amazon card for the full amount of rewards earned within a one year period.

The Tesla account username and password is used to obtain an access token. In order to ensure your information is secure, these credentials are never stored. The access token is encrypted using industry standards in transit and before storage on disk. These tokens can only be decrypted for Tesla API read-only operations by automated processes inside SmartCharge Rewards network.

Each participant may register up to two EVs.

Prospective participants can apply to the program in March. The first phase of this program will extend until March 2022. Throughout the program, we will provide more information on how to continue participation.

SmartCharge Rewards will email you 24hrs before the event with the date and time of the event.

Please ensure you have mobile access enabled on the Tesla vehicle you wish to connect to your SmartCharge Rewards account. This can be completed in your vehicle under Controls > Safety & Security > Allow Mobile Access.

If you have logged in with the wrong username or password multiple times while attempting to connect to your tesla account, your account may have become locked. Please visit and reset your Tesla account password. Once this is reset, please login to your SmartCharge Rewards account and connect to your Tesla account.

If you have changed your Tesla account credentials, the connection to your vehicle and the SmartCharge program will no longer exist. To reset this connection, login to your SmartCharge account. You will be prompted to re-enter your Tesla account credentials to reconnect.
