if you have any questions on our rewards program or just want to know a bit more.

What are the qualifications to participate?

You must live in a qualifying utility service area as determined by your zip code. Check your eligibility on this website.

The person listed on your utility bill will need to sign a Customer Information Service Request (CISR) form. We require a copy of your electric utility bill to ensure accurate completion of this form.

You will need to have a JuiceNet-enabled EV charging station or JuicePlug, which is connected to the internet in order to participate and earn rewards. See our webstore for listings of JuiceNet-enabled devices, including JuiceNet partner devices.

You may not be eligible for eMotorWerks’s Rewards program if you are participating in certain “demand response” programs, such as SCE’s “Save Power Days,” PG&E’s SmartAC and SmartRate or with non-utility providers of such programs, like OhmConnect or Chai Energy. We will review your eligibility for our rewards program, based on the information from your utility, and contact as soon if we become aware of any conflicts.

You will need to accept our Rewards program Terms of Participation during your enrollment process.

What is this program all about?

eMotorWerks’ Rewards program empowers you to charge your vehicle in a way that maximizes your use of 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 that way overnight. Your vehicle charges immediately, or during the pre-programmed times, and doesn’t do much else until you use it again. When your Rewards program is active, this series of events looks essentially the same: You come home, connect your vehicle to the charging station, and view the time by which charging is scheduled to be complete. If you need your vehicle at some time earlier, you simply click “Charge Now” on your JuiceNet dashboard or mobile app. eMotorWerks receives information about the grid such as when electricity prices are high and demand flexibility is needed to maximize use of renewable energy sources and to avoid use of fossil fueled power plants. In response, eMotorWerks may defer your charging to later time periods of your charging session 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 may 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 may not earn JuicePoints.

Why does eMotorWerks need my authorization?

In order for eMotorWerks to complete your Rewards registration and verify your charging station’s response to the grid operator, we need to be able to access your utility electric meter data. Any time a third party, such as eMotorWerks, needs access to your meter data, you must sign a Customer Information Service Request (CISR) form that grants access. The utility will not grant us access without your permission.

You are free to revoke that permission at any time, but you will no longer be eligible to earn rewards in the program.

What do you do with my data?

We take your privacy very seriously. Your utility meter data will be used to verify your eligibility for enrollment and to verify your charging behavior to the grid operator. You can find further details in our Privacy Policy.

What if I have solar?

That’s ok! Currently, residential solar net energy metering (NEM) utility rate plans do not conflict with our program. If you are on a rate that maximizes your solar savings during the day, you can instruct the charger not to draw power during that time. This would allow you to feed your solar power to the grid during the day and conduct as much charging as possible during the night.

If you are a commercial NEM customer with daytime charging, please contact rewards@emotorwerks.com to discuss if this program is right for you.

What if I am on a Time of Use rate?

That’s ok! We realize that for many EV owners Time of Use rates are beneficial. There are certain Time of Use rate plans which incorporate “demand response” features, which encourage energy conservation at specific times when electricity demand is high. If you are enrolled in one of these plans with demand response features, you will not be allowed by your utility to participate in our rewards program because generally utilities only allow participation in a single demand response program at a time.

Tell me about JuicePoints and 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. When your Rewards program is launched, JuicePoints are earned for the number of hours you make your car available for smart charging - JuiceTime - 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 Rewards program has launched.

How are my rewards distributed?

You will receive your rewards in the form of cash (via PayPal).

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.

How long is a JuiceBox ID?

A JuiceNet ID 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.

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. 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 electricity prices and 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 prices and levels of consumption are high, 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 joining your EV with other EVs charging on JuiceNet, eMotorwerks is able to offer this group of EVs to the power grid like power plant, but in reverse. We can increase charging when demand is low, and decrease charging when demand is high. With enough vehicles, grid operators could reduce their reliance on operating gas power plants to backup renewables like wind and solar. Currently, grid operators keep some power plants operating to prepare for drop offs in wind and solar. With tens of thousands of connected EVs, we could avoid having those power plants online, making the grid cleaner!

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

No. JuiceNet is designed to ensure that your vehicle is ready by the time you need it. Your 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.

I have a non-JuiceNet edition Clipper Creek or Aerovironment station. Can I send in my EVSE to upgrade it to JuiceNet and participate in the Rewards program?

No, not at this time. To participate in Rewards, we recommend purchasing the JuicePlug, which provides JuiceNet capabilities to any charging station that utilizes the J1772 connector standard, or you can purchase a new JuiceNet enabled station.

Can I participate if I am currently in the CA sub-metering pilot?

Unfortunately not. If you have a JuiceNet edition AeroVironment EVSE-RS, when your submetering pilot is completed, you may be able to enroll in our Rewards program depending on your location and your electricity service provider.

Can I earn Rewards if I don’t have a JuiceNet-enabled charging station?

Yes, you can purchase our universal smart-grid adapter, JuicePlug, in our web store. JuicePlug converts any J1772 standard, non-internet connected charging station into a smart station and provides access to our popular JuiceNet mobile app for Android and iOS devices as well as web dashboard to view charging status and control your device(s).

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

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

I do not have a smart meter for my electricity. Can I still participate?

No. Unfortunately, customers without smart meters are not eligible for our program.
