JuicePoints Pays EV Drivers To Charge Their EVs

Originally published on EV Obsession.

A new program dubbed “JuicePoints” was recently revealed by the charging solutions company eMotorWerks that’ll actually “pay” drivers for charging their electric vehicles at specific times, according to recent reports.

The program allows existing JuiceBox Pro and JuiceNet-enabled ClipperCreek customers who sign up to earn various rewards. JuicePoints is now available for signup throughout the San Francisco Bay Area, and will be expanded elsewhere throughout California (into other PG&E, SCE, and SDG&E utility territory) over the coming weeks.

A recent press release provides more information:

Qualified new buyers will also receive $100 off the purchase of a JuiceBox Pro 40 — the market-leading, connected EV charging station. For more information and to sign up, visit JuicePoints sign-up page.

eMotorWerks is the only EV charging provider awarded contracts under the California Public Utilities Commission Demand Response Auction Mechanism. The company has contracts with all 3 IOUs, making it uniquely able to control EV charging and offer customer rewards. In addition to the DRAM program, the company also participates in several innovative energy service programs in PG&E territory, including the PEV Submetering Pilot, Supply Side Pilot, and Excess Supply Pilot. Large-scale participation of EV charging loads in such programs is made possible for the first time by eMotorWerks’ JuiceNet platform that is smart, dispatchable, allowing plug-in EVs to provide grid services while they charge, and making the grid cleaner while paying back PEV owners.

“Our JuicePoints program is unique to the industry and particularly beneficial for our customers,” stated Valery Miftakhov, Founder of eMotorWerks. “[O]ur high-speed dispatch capability, cloud-based, self-learning algorithms, and easy-to-use mobile app ensure that your car is always charged when you need it, while simultaneously offering greater flexibility to the grid and greener charging.”

“The ability to shed loads from customer’s PEVs through centralized control in return for incentive rewards enables JuiceNet to uniquely assist with grid load moderation, especially as more transportation becomes electrified,” stated Ron Freund, Chairman of the Electric Auto Association.
