Overview of the Program
SmartCharge New York is a Con Edison program. Geotab serves as a program partner of SmartCharge New York pursuant to contract with Con Edison. Geotab is the owner of certain technology and Products associated with administration of SmartCharge New York, which includes the SmartCharge Rewards® name and logo in connection with incentives paid in connection with the Program.
Con Edison has partnered with Geotab to assist with the administration of SmartCharge New York and to provide Con Edison with Products in connection the Program, and, among other things, in order for Con Edison to learn more about Electric Vehicles (EVs) that are being charged in Con Edison’s service territory, to learn more about the EV driving and charging patterns and preferences of EV drivers, and to provide an incentive for EV owners to charge their vehicles during times that are beneficial for Con Edison. If you are accepted to participate in SmartCharge New York, you will either be provided with a Geotab branded ‘GO’ Device or equivalent (“Connected Car Device”) for installation in the on-board diagnostics port or propriety diagnostics connecter of your vehicle, OR prompted to connect your vehicle manufacturer (“OEM”) account] at the discretion of Geotab and Con Edison. Either type will be considered the participant’s “Device” or “Devices” for the purposes of participation in this Program.
By connecting a Device to your SmartCharge Rewards® account, you permit Geotab to access data from that Device for the purpose of your participation in the Program as described below in the Data Collected by the Device; Privacy section.
Each applicant whose application is accepted by Con Edison and who agrees to these Terms and Conditions will be a participant in the Program (each a “Participant” and together the “Participants”). Participants may be eligible to earn cash equivalent rewards known as “SmartCharge Rewards®” for things such as: sharing data, charging at specific times of day, referring a friend or taking a survey. For details about how you can earn SmartCharge Rewards® as currently structured, please see https://www.smartchargerewards.com/smartchargenewyork/. Please check this page periodically for changes to how SmartCharge Rewards® may be earned.
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 or Con Edison 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 about their vehicle charging and driving behavior and track SmartCharge Rewards® earned through personal log-in access to the SmartCharge Rewards® portal (the “Portal” or the “SmartCharge Rewards® Portal”). To log into the Portal, Participants must have access to a computer, smartphone, or other mobile device, with Internet access.
Vehicle Manufacturer (“OEM”) Account
To connect your OEM Account to the SmartCharge Rewards® Portal without the need of a physical device provided by Con Edison, you will be asked to input your OEM username and password (“Credentials”) into an interface within your SmartCharge Rewards® account. This information will be used to retrieve an authentication token unique to you. The authentication token will be stored and used to retrieve your vehicle data. The Credentials are not saved within the Portal.
There is no functionality to remotely start a vehicle using the Portal as Credentials are not stored.
OEM authentication tokens can be revoked at any time by changing your OEM password. This will result in access to your vehicle’s data no longer being enabled through the Portal unless and until you provide a new OEM authentication token again. You accept all responsibility for safeguarding your OEM password and abiding by any agreed upon contractual obligations between you and your vehicle manufacturer.
Data Collected by the Device; Privacy
To conduct SmartCharge New York and provide Participants with the products and services outlined in this Agreement, facilitate appropriate customer service, and to enhance and improve the Program as well as Products and services, Geotab will collect information through the Device.
Any Device type will collect at minimum the following information to ensure accurate calculation of charging information:
- About your Charging – Charging start and end date and time, charging power (kW), charging energy (kWh), GPS coordinates.
When possible, a Device may also collect additional information to enhance participant experience, provide additional services to Con Edison related to SmartCharge New York, and to enhance and improve the Program as well as Products and services. This information may include:
- About your EV – VIN (Vehicle Identification Number), make, model and model year.
- About your driving – basic trip metrics such as duration, start and end time, ambient temperature, energy consumption (gas/diesel and electricity), and GPS. GPS data collected while driving is not stored by the Portal, and is not shared with your utility.
A subset of the collected data outlined above will be used to populate an online dashboard made available for you to view in the SmartCharge Rewards® Portal https://smartchargenewyork.smartchargerewards.com/login so that you can monitor your own vehicle’s charging and driving.

Geotab and Con Edison will not be held responsible for data losses or rewards losses of any type including but not limited software updates to vehicles from the manufacturer and faulty or improperly installed devices. Geotab will make every reasonable attempt to make the SmartCharge Rewards® system compatible with changes made by manufacturers of vehicles on our supported list but cannot guarantee whether compatibility will be possible or timely following a change by the manufacturer.
Withdrawal from the Program; Termination of the Program
Your participation in SmartCharge New York is completely voluntary so you are free to withdraw from the Program at any time. To withdraw from the Program, remove the Connected Car Device (as applicable) from your EV and notify Geotab of your withdrawal at email@example.com. If you connected your OEM account, notify Geotab of your withdrawal request at firstname.lastname@example.org
For each month that you do not charge an EV with a properly installed Device in the Con Edison 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 Device in the Con Edison service territory for three (3) consecutive months, you may be deemed to have withdrawn from the Program.
