"In the last 12 months we have saved 5800 lbs of carbon dioxide... an amazing dashboard you can see every month how much you're contributing to the environment. [SmartCharge Rewards] pays us to charge our car."
Rahul and Ankita SmartCharge New York participants
"When we charge overnight two things happen; we have a reduced rate, and the SmartCharge program sees what time of day we're charging and will give us a refund... most of our driving has been free because of that."
Jesse and Susan SmartCharge New York participants
"It's super easy to do. You just come home, park the car and plug it in. SmartCharge rewards you for charging between midnight and 8 am."
Harris Family SmartCharge New York participants
"It gives me discounts on the electric… Also, it has a pretty nice dashboard that is easy to set up and gives me information about my driving habits"
Douglas Olsen Tesla Model S Owner
"I actually had no idea how much power I was using and how much money I was saving by switching from a gas car to an electric car."
Dana Stetson Tesla Model S Owner

"To me, SmartCharge Rewards just makes sense."
Peter Andersen Chevrolet Volt Owner
"I love SmartCharge because it is like a video game. Like a reality video game. It is not virtual reality. It is real virtuality. It is almost like dancing with technology when I drive my car. It inspires you to be energy efficient and socially-conscious."
Nenad Bach Tesla Model S Owner
"It’s a program I found very easy to sign up for, and I’ve learned a great deal…"
