New York utility Con Edison has expanded its SmartCharge New York program, which rewards owners for charging vehicles during off-peak hours, to include more than 60 EVs and model years. According to the company, enrollment in the program expanded from 5% of eligible EVs in its service area in 2017 to 24% in 2022.
The company has also partnered with charging app ev.energy to add new features and cash incentives based on data collected from charging stations or the vehicles’ onboard telematics.
The aim is to support the EV transition, maintain service reliability for all customers during periods of high demand and manage future grid build-out to reduce customer costs.
