Program description

Get Installed

Once you receive your connected car device, just follow the easy-to-understand installation and activation instructions. It’s a simple process and you should be up and running in minutes!

Get Charging

The C2 device will help the Tennessee Valley Authority, Middle Tennessee Electric Membership Corporation and Nashville Electric Service see hotspots for electric vehicle charging. This information is critical in understanding how electric vehicles will affect the entire charging network. The device plugs right into your EV unlocking powerful information about your vehicle’s charger and battery use, which you’ll be able to see, too. We’re asking EV owners in Nashville to help pave the way for a more reliable charging network. Will you join us?

Get Rewards

Participants will receive $50 after the first six months of participation and another $50 after one year of participation. The C2 device is discrete and goes unnoticed by most drivers. So the only catch, keeping the C2 plugged in, shouldn’t be a problem.

– Receive $50 each year.
– Get incentives for your participation and support.
– Win, win for driving and charging as usual.

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.

You are eligible for this program if you are a customer of either Nashville Electric Service or Middle Tennessee Electric Membership Cooperative, and own or lease a plug-in electric vehicle – either a plug-in hybrid electric vehicle or battery electric vehicle.

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 Queensland program.

  • In addition to helping LES learn more about EV and PHEV charging habits, you’ll receive a $25 credit on your bill once data collection commences and then another $25 credit when you return the hardware device to LES at the end of the study. You’ll also have access to your charging and driving data on the online portal, all at no cost.

Yes! Simply indicate the number of vehicles you wish to register for the program in your application.

The C2 is a connected car device that was developed to give electric vehicle drivers access to a wealth of information about their cars like driving efficiency, battery health, and more. It makes EV data access easy, comparable, and shareable.

The C2 gathers data directly from your vehicle’s internal systems, processes it, and makes it available to you via a mobile-friendly dashboard called SmartCharge Rewards.

For a glossary of terms related to EVs, C2 technology, and charging, please refer to https://smartchargerewards.com/support/

The device is very easy to install, simply plugging into your vehicle’s on-board 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://smartchargerewards.com/support/, as well as mailed with your C2.

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.

Yes, by signing up for SmartCharge Nashville and receiving your C2 device, you are agreeing to clip in as soon as possible and remain clipped in until Oct 2020. If you remove the device you may lose the ability to collect the program incentive.

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 want to use PayPal, you will receive an Amazon card for the full amount of rewards earned at the end of the year.

Via the C2 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 C2 device if you have not yet activated it.
