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.

Participants will install a small device in their vehicle that automatically collects and transmits vehicle information via a cellular connection. Data collected are shared with participants in a personalized portal and will be used by SmartCharge Rewards and WED to understand EV charging.

You are eligible if you own or lease a plug-in electric vehicle – either a plug-in hybrid electric vehicle or battery electric vehicle, and you are a WED customer that typically charges your vehicle within the WED service territory

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 SmartCharge New England WED program.

The study currently does not offer incentives to participants. However, the collected data could lead to future incentives or favorable utility rate design for EV charging. We will keep participants enrolled in the study informed should there be any updates!

Yes! You can register up to 2 vehicles in the program, simply indicate the number of vehicles in your application.

The Geotab GO9 is a connected car device that is installed into the on-board diagnostics (OBD-II) port in your electric vehicle. It gathers data directly from your vehicle’s internal systems, processes it and transmits it to SmartCharge Rewards cloud-based servers where it becomes available to you via a web portal. For a glossary of terms related to EVs, Geotab GO9 technology, and charging, please refer to https://www.smartchargerewards.com/support/ .

The connected car device is very easy to install, simply plugging into your vehicle’s onboard diagnostics (OBD II) port or Tesla diagnostics connector. The OBD II port is typically located below the steering wheel and is the same port mechanics plug into for diagnostic checks.

Instructions can be found at https://www.smartchargerewards.com/support/ , as well as mailed with your GO9.

If you still have questions, please contact support@smartchargerewards.com or call 1-800-975-2434. Our hours of operation are Monday to Friday from 5am- 2pm PST (8am – 5pm EST).

No problem! Send us an email at support@smartchargerewards.com and we can send you a free y-cable so that you can have both devices connected.

The device should remain plugged in for the duration of the study. However, it is fine if your auto shop temporarily removes the device for diagnostic testing. Just be sure it is plugged back in afterward.

Prospective participants can apply starting on June 1st, 2021, with the data collection period lasting two years.

Via the GO9 hardware device, SmartCharge Rewards will collect information about:

  • Charging session duration, energy consumption and location.
  • GPS charging location coordinates will be used to determine how much charging is occurring within the Snohomish PUD service territory. We only collect GPS information when you are charging, not when you are driving.
  • Trip duration, energy consumption and distance traveled.
  • Personal information such as name, email, vehicle type and home address

If you move out of state, sell your EV or simply wish to no longer participate in the program, please notify SmartCharge Rewards Support by email (support@smartchargerewards.com) to end your participation in the program and for instructions on how to return your GO9 device if you have not yet activated it.
