Thank you for your interest in participating in the SmartCharge RewardsTM Program (the “Program”) that is being offered by Geotab Inc., doing business as Geotab Energy, and the program partner Rhode Island Energy, a PPL Company.
Your participation in the Program is expressly conditioned on your acceptance of these Terms and Conditions (the “Terms and Conditions” or this “Agreement”). Your participation in the Program, however, is completely voluntary. Therefore, if you do not agree with any of these Terms and Conditions, including the Privacy Policies referenced below, please do not participate in the Program. If you have already submitted an application to participate in the Program and you have been informed that your application has been approved for participation in the Program, please note that you will not become a participant in the Program unless, after approval of your application, you provide your mailing address within any timeframe indicated in your application approval notice (each such person, a “Participant”).
Geotab Energy reserves the right to modify these terms and conditions at any time. Any modifications to these terms and conditions will be made available for viewing at the following web address: https://www.smartchargerewards.com/rhodeisland/. Please check this page periodically. Your continued participation in the Program will constitute your acceptance of any modifications to these Terms and Conditions.
Who May Participate in the Program
All Participants in the Program must be at least 18 years old. By accepting these Terms and Conditions, you are representing to Geotab Energy that you are at least 18 years old, you have read these Terms and Conditions, and you are legally competent to accept these Terms and Conditions.
In addition, Participants in the Program should own or lease a light-duty battery electric vehicle or plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (“EV”) and regularly charge the EV within the Program partner(s) service territory. The “Service Territory” for this Program includes all EV charging within Rhode Island Energy Service Territory. Participants also should have access to a computer, smart phone or other mobile device with internet access.
The partner(s) are purchasing a set number of Geotab Energy connected car devices (the “C2 Devices”) for use by Program Participants. The partner(s) plan to purchase a limited number of C2 Devices at the beginning of the Program and, may purchase additional C2 Devices going forward. Participants will generally be selected on a first come, first serve basis, subject to C2 Device availability, at the time of application review. If C2 Devices are not available at the time an application is submitted, Geotab Energy will endeavor to place qualified individuals who previously applied to the Program on a waiting list, and, if additional C2 Devices become available again under the Program, Geotab Energy will endeavor to contact these applicants first to confirm their continued desire to participate in the Program and to confirm or update the information provided on his/her Program application. However, because Geotab Energy and the partner(s) want to learn about a variety of different EV types, Participant selection may, in Geotab Energy’s sole discretion, be based in part on the EV make and model indicated on a prospective Participant’s application. Participant selection decisions will be made by Geotab Energy in their sole and absolute discretion and all selection decisions are final and binding.
Information about the Program Partner(s)
Geotab Energy has developed the Program, in part, to learn more about light-duty battery electric vehicles and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (“EVs”) that are being charged in the Service Territory and to learn more about the EV driving and charging patterns and preferences of EV drivers. If you are selected to participate in the Program, you will be provided with a C2 Device for installation in the on-board diagnostics port (“OBD II Port”) of your vehicle, or in the case of some Tesla vehicles, in the proprietary diagnostics connector. Applicants with more than one EV are eligible to apply for more than one C2 Device. Participants may also earn financial rewards from Geotab Energy known as “SmartCharge RewardsTM” for joining the Program, correctly installing the C2 Device, and sharing their data. Thereafter, participants may earn additional incentives upon taking certain actions that facilitate the goals of the Program Partner(s), such as charging EVs at certain times in the utility service territory and completing surveys. Please see the section entitled “How to Earn SmartCharge RewardsTM” for more detail.
During and after your participation in the Program, you may be asked to participate in follow up surveys, studies, audits, evaluations or verifications conducted by Geotab Energy or Program Partners or their agents or service providers in connection with the Program. While we hope that you choose to participate in these surveys, your participation will be completely voluntary.
Participants will be able to view certain data collected by the C2 Device installed in her/his EV and track her/his SmartCharge RewardsTM through personal log-in access to the SmartCharge RewardsTM portal (the “Portal”). In order to log into the Portal, Participants must have access to a computer, smart phone or other mobile device with internet access.
The C2 Device: How it Works
Subject to availability, the C2 Device will be mailed or given to a selected Participant after eligibility has been determined and a mailing address (if required) has been timely received from the Participant. Upon proper submission of a completed application, an applicant should expect to receive a response on his/her application within approximately five (5) business days. Selected Participants should expect to receive the C2 Device(s) within approximately ten (10) business days of receiving a notice of acceptance to participate in the Program.
The C2 is installed by plugging it into the OBD II Port of any battery electric vehicle or plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (or, in the case of some Tesla vehicles, by plugging into its proprietary diagnostics connector). Participants with a Tesla vehicle may also receive a special adapter to install the C2 Device in a Tesla vehicle. C2 Device installation is relatively easy to do. Participants are responsible for installation. If you require any assistance with locating the OBD II Port, Tesla’s proprietary diagnostics connector, or need installation directions, please refer to the installation instructions available at http://www.smartchargerewards.com/support/
Data Collected by the C2 Device and Privacy
In order to conduct the Program and to provide participants with the products and services outlined in this agreement and appropriate customer service, and to enhance and improve these products and services, Geotab Energy will collect certain information through the C2 Device. A C2 Device installed in an EV will record when the Device is plugged into, and unplugged from, the EV and it will also collect the following information:
(a) About your EV – VIN or Vehicle Identification Number, and EV make, model and model year;
(b) About your driving – drive start date and time, duration of trip, trip distance, EV state of charge at start of drive, EV state of charge at end of drive, electricity consumed during drive, liquid fuel consumed during drive (if EV is a hybrid vehicle), electric distance fraction (if EV is a plug-in hybrid electric vehicle, the % of miles/km the car ran on electric), ambient temperature, average auxiliary load during trip;
(c) About your charging patterns – for each charging session (for which a session number will be assigned) – start date and time, duration of charging session, charging power level (kW), total charging energy (total electricity consumed in kWh), 15-minute interval charging energy (kWh), starting state of charge, ending state of charge, GPS coordinates of where the charging session occurred;
(d) Calculations – watt hours per kilometer/mile, liters per 100 km equivalent or MPG equivalent, total electricity consumed, greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, battery state of health (i.e., the degree of ability of the high-voltage battery to accept and discharge electricity).
A subset of the collected data outlined above will be used to populate an online dashboard made available for Participants to view in the SmartCharge RewardsTM Portal so that the Participant can monitor his/her own vehicle’s charging and driving.
Geotab Energy will have access to all of the above-listed data. The program partner(s) will have access to some, and possibly all, of this data, depending upon what data is deemed pertinent to the goals of the Program.
Information that is collected through the C2 Device will be erased from the device once the information is transferred to Geotab Energy. The data collected by the C2 Device is encrypted when transmitted to SmartCharge RewardsTM servers. Data will also be encrypted when Geotab Energy sends it to its partner(s) in the Program.
In addition to the data listed above, Geotab Energy will collect the information you provide on your Program application and any surveys or other Program evaluations that you choose to complete and submit during your participation in the Program.
Collected information that is transferred to Geotab Energy will be retained by Geotab Energy, and possibly its Program partners, for an indefinite amount of time.
Please see the SmartCharge RewardsTM Privacy Statement available at http://www.smartchargerewards.com/privacy-policy/ for further information on data collected by Geotab Energy and how it may be used by Geotab Energy.
Without limiting the terms of the Privacy Policies referenced above, Geotab Energy may use the information obtained about you through your participation in the Program, including data collected through the C2 Device provided to you (collectively, “Participant Information”), in order (a) to operate, administer, market, evaluate, analyze, change or improve the Program, the C2 Devices and the SmartCharge RewardsTM Portal, and (b) to prepare and present general, aggregated or anonymized results and information about the Program to third parties, including governmental entities such as the electricity system regulatory bodies. Geotab Energy and the Program partner(s) may also use and publish information regarding your participation in the Program, your use of the C2 Device, and your use of the SmartCharge RewardsTM Portal as long as the information is presented in an anonymized format (i.e., in a manner that does not identify you).

How to Participate in the Program
If you wish to participate in the Program, you must do the following:
Create a SmartCharge RewardsTM account and complete an application which can be found at www.smartchargerewards.com/rhodeisland. The Program team will review your application to confirm eligibility. If accepted, Geotab Energy will send you a confirmation email and ask you for your mailing address. Upon receipt of your mailing address, Geotab Energy will send you a C2 Device with instructions for installation and activation of the C2 Device. You should receive the C2 Device(s) in approximately ten (10) business days from the date of providing your mailing address.
C2 Device(s) must be activated and installed before data can be collected and before a Participant can earn any SmartCharge RewardsTM. If you do not activate and/or install the C2 Device(s) within 7 days of receipt, you may receive a notice, via email, reminding you to install and activate the C2 Device. You may be considered to be withdrawn from the Program if you do not install and activate your C2 Device within 3 weeks of receipt. If you decide not to install and activate the C2 Device, we ask that you return the C2 Device so that it may be provided to another Participant. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange the return of the C2 device. Please do not return any C2 Device that you installed in a vehicle.
Can the C2 Device be Transferred to Another Vehicle?
Pending approval from the Program support team, you may be eligible to transfer the C2 Device to another EV during your participation in the Program as long as the substitute vehicle is an EV that is owned or leased by the same SmartCharge RewardsTM account holder as the previous vehicle. The C2 Device will read the new vehicle’s VIN and update the SmartCharge RewardsTM account with the information on the new vehicle. Please contact email@example.com you wish to transfer your device to a new EV.
Withdrawal from the Program and Expected Duration of Program
Your participation in the Program is completely voluntary so you are free to withdraw from the Program at any time. To withdraw from the Program, remove the C2 Device from your EV and notify Geotab Energy of your withdrawal at firstname.lastname@example.org.
For each month that you do not charge an EV with a properly installed C2 Device in the Service Territory, you will receive an email inquiring about your continued interest in participating in the Program. If you do not charge an EV with a properly installed C2 Device in the Service Territory for three (3) consecutive months, you will be deemed to have withdrawn from the Program.
Geotab Energy expects the Program to continue until August 31st, 2022. However, Geotab Energy and its program partner(s) reserve the right to terminate the Program at any time for any reason or for no reason and even though such termination may affect your ability to earn SmartCharge RewardsTM. Participants may have access to the Portal for ninety (90) days after the Program terminates.
Once the Program terminates or a Participant withdraws from, or is deemed withdrawn from, the Program, continued collection of data from the EV(s) in which a C2 Device(s) is installed will stop within 15 days after termination or withdrawal in order to protect the privacy of participants.
A Participant who withdraws from the Program voluntarily or is deemed to have withdrawn due to limited charging activity (as described above) may continue to have post-termination access to the Portal for ninety (90) days. Once a Participant no longer has access to the Portal, the Participant will no longer have the ability to view previously recorded data from their EV or SmartCharge RewardsTM redemption codes and links.
In addition to the above, Geotab Energy and its partner(s) in this Program, by sending an email notice to the Participant, reserve the right to immediately terminate Program participation of anyone who engages in any fraudulent activity or actions in violation of these terms and conditions. This type of termination may result in Participant’s immediate loss of access to the Portal.
How to Earn SmartCharge RewardsTM
During the duration of the Program, SmartCharge RewardsTM may be earned on a per-vehicle basis by installing and activating your device, charging in the Service Territory, charging at particular times, and/or engaging in other activities like completing a survey or referring a friend. SmartCharge RewardsTM will begin to be calculated and accrued once the C2 Device is installed and activated in the SmartCharge RewardsTM portal. Geotab Energy and its program partner(s) reserve the right to add, change or remove activities for which SmartCharge RewardsTM may be earned and/or the number of SmartCharge RewardsTM earned thereby at any time. For detail about how you can earn SmartCharge Rewards as the Program is currently structured, please see http://www.smartchargerewards.com/rhodeisland. Please check this page periodically for changes to how SmartCharge RewardsTM may be earned.
How to Redeem SmartCharge RewardsTM
On the 15th day of each month, the SmartCharge RewardsTM earned for the previous month will be calculated based on 1,000 SmartCharge RewardsTM points equaling $1.00, and are redeemed for electronic gift cards, cash deposits, and/or other rewards as available. The available retail or other redemption options may change at any time at the discretion of Geotab Energy and its partner(s) in the Program.
