How Does It Work?

JuiceNet receives information from electric grid operators when electricity prices are high and additional fossil-fueled power plants may need to be activated.

In response, JuiceNet can defer your charging to later time periods within your charging session to draw cleaner and cheaper electricity This happens automatically while ensuring your car is ready when you need it.

By conserving energy at these critical moments, you help us reduce demand for carbon-intensive electricity. Grid operators share cost savings with us and then we share with you! All of this happens automatically, without you needing to lift a finger.

When we cannot match your charging to grid conditions, we purchase renewable energy credits to offset your EV charging.

What is this smart charging program all about?

The JuicePoints program empowers you to charge your vehicle in a way that maximizes your use of cleaner, cheaper renewable energy and minimizes your contribution to grid congestion—all while earning rewards for participating!

Your participation is enabling what is known as “demand flexibility.” Normally, you come home, connect your vehicle to your charger, and leave it plugged in overnight. Your vehicle charges immediately, or during the pre-programmed times, and doesn’t do much else until you use it again.

When your JuicePoints program is active, this series of events looks essentially the same: You come home, connect your vehicle to the charging station, and view the times when charging is scheduled to start and stop . If you need your vehicle to start charging immediately, simply click “Charge Now” on your JuiceNet dashboard or mobile app. eMotorWerks receives information about the grid from your electricity provider, such as when electricity demand is high and demand flexibility is needed, to maximize the use of renewable energy sources and to avoid greater use of fossil fuel power plants. In response, eMotorWerks may defer your charging session to periods with cleaner and less costly sources of energy.

eMotorWerks' JuiceNet is a smart charging cloud-based system, designed to ensure that your vehicle is ready for action by the time you need it. You always have the option to override any smart charging event and charge your vehicle right away; however, for those sessions when you override, you will not earn JuicePoints.

Am I giving up any control by participating?

Absolutely not! You are always in control of your charging from the JuiceNet dashboard or mobile app. Your needs are always the first priority and you’re able to override and charge immediately at any time, for any reason; however, for those sessions when you override, you will not earn JuicePoints.

How much will I earn with this program?

Your earnings depend on several factors, including your location, the size of your vehicle’s battery, how far you drive your vehicle, and when you typically charge. This means that earnings vary from driver to driver. Once you are signed up for the JuicePoints program, you earn JuicePoints for the number of hours you make your car available for smart charging and the number of kilowatt hours (kWh) charged on weekdays. The more you plug in and charge, the more you earn! In order to earn JuicePoints, your charging station must be reliably connected to a local wireless network. Note that JuicePoints can only be earned after eMotorWerks confirms your eligibility, your JuiceNet device is reliably connected to your local wireless network, and eMotorWerks notifies you that your JuicePoints program has been activated

How are my JuicePoints distributed?

You will receive your JuicePoints in the form of cash (via PayPal). The minimum redemption amount is $20. Please contact rewards@emotorwerks.com to request your JuicePoints payout.

How does this actually help the grid? I’d like to learn more.

EVs are generally plugged in for much longer than it takes to charge them. Most of us leave our vehicles plugged in overnight, but the battery typically only needs a few hours, at most, to charge with a Level 2 charging station. JuiceNet automates your charging schedule to respond to instances when the level of overall consumption is high, meaning that more fossil-fueled power plants must be utilized, instead of relying mostly upon renewable energy to charge your EV.

Our ultimate goal is that when renewable energy is available, your vehicle will charge, and when levels of consumption are high relative to renewable energy availability, your vehicle defers charging. This allows you to be a “good neighbor” on the grid and keep from adding to overall consumption while also reducing your impact on the environment. However, at all times, JuiceNet will attempt to honor your desired departure time so that your vehicle is charged and ready when you need it.

By managing your EV with other EVs charging on JuiceNet, eMotorwerks is able to reduce EV charging consumption by significant amounts during peak periods. We can increase charging when demand for electricity is low, and decrease charging when demand is high. This helps your electricity provider balance supply and demand on the grid and reduce the overall cost of your electricity. With enough vehicles, grid operators can reduce their reliance on dirty “peaker plants” and integrate more renewables like wind and solar. With tens of thousands of connected EVs,we can make the grid cleaner!

What if there is not enough renewable energy during the period my vehicle is charging? Will I be stranded?

Your charging needs are a higher priority than renewable energy availability. We strive to maximize renewable energy usage, but if it is not available, we will still charge your vehicle so that it is ready when you need it. Also, if you need your EV to charge immediately, you can instruct JuiceNet to “charge now” on your JuiceNet mobile app or the web dashboard.

If I’m having problems with my JuiceBox, who do I contact?

Please contact eMotorWerks customer service.

My JuiceBox is not on a dedicated meter. Will this affect the power for the rest of my home?

No, absolutely not! Temporary reductions in your EV’s charging instructed by JuiceNet have no effect on how and when power is distributed to the rest of your home.

What is a JuiceNet ID?

A JuiceNet ID is a unique number assigned to your charging station, and is typically 28 characters long. If you need to provide it to us, you can login to your JuiceNet dashboard or mobile app and send it to us via email, or you can send us a picture of the product label from the side of your JuiceNet device.

Can I participate in this JuicePoints program if I have a JuiceBox Pro 40 Lite (UL certified version)?

Great news! Yes, you can easily upgrade your JuiceBox Pro 40 Lite to be eligible for JuicePoints participation. Sign up for JuicePoints and our customer service team will issue you a coupon to upgrade at our web store for only $5.

I am a JuiceNet-as-a-Service (JaaS) or JuicePlan customer. Can I join JuicePoints?
