Get a connected charger and SCP will pay for the equipment. You pay for shipping and handling, and installation costs, and we’ll provide some tips on how to get it installed.
If you choose to participate in SCP’s CleanCharge program, we’ll provide $250 in JuicePoints when you get started.
When you use a JuiceNet enabled charger, you can earn “JuicePoints” by helping Sonoma Clean Power use more renewable energy. If you choose to sign up for SCP CleanCharge, software in the charging equipment allows your charger to adjust in response to signals that help avoid using as much power when California’s electric grid is particularly dirty or expensive. That means you will be helping us move toward a cleaner grid for everyone while using a system that ensures you get the charge you need. You can also override and “Charge Now” at any time.
Getting charging equipment installed in a single family home with a garage is usually fairly simple. See our tips on hiring an electrician here. To participate in SCP CleanCharge, you will need to install the charging equipment within range of a wifi network.
If you park your car in a shared parking lot or on a public street, getting charging equipment installed can be more challenging and expensive. SCP knows about these challenges and is working on designing a program that helps more in these locations. For now, you can do your own research and use our incentives, but be careful because the equipment we currently incentivize may not be suitable for apartment or condo locations. Consider asking an electrician to visit your site to make recommendations on how best to install charging equipment.
Plug in your car and use the JuiceNet app to set charging times. JuiceNet uses your home wifi to communicate with the power grid to monitor demand. When demand on the grid is high, your charging station automatically adjusts charging levels until the grid pressure is relieved, reducing or avoiding the need for “dirty power”. Your participation helps us cut greenhouse gas emissions even if you already use 100% renewable energy because we’re able to offset dirtier sources of power with your cleaner mix.
Your charging station will turn off when it is done charging. This happens automatically while ensuring your car is still fully charged when you need it. By reducing demand for dirty power, grid operators share their savings with us and we pass that along to you in the form of “JuicePoints.” The whole process is automatic, once you’ve set it up.
Set-up instructions come with your charging equipment, and once you’ve connected it to the grid, you’ll earn $250 in JuicePoints that can be redeemed for cash through your PayPal account. As you charge your car, you continue to earn more JuicePoints.
Take a look at your PG&E electric bill to see if the charges on the first page include “Sonoma Clean Power electric generation charges.” If they do, then you’re our customer. If not, you may be able to enroll in our service in you live in Sonoma County and not within the city limits of Healdsburg (where they have their own municipal utility). Call our toll free number to find out if you’re eligible for SCP at 1 (855) 202-2139. Customer service representatives are available to assist you 7am to 7pm, Monday through Friday.
Nope. You can still take advantage of our charging equipment incentive even if you don’t choose to connect it the JuiceNet system. But you won’t be able to get the $250 rebate for connecting your charger, and you won’t be helping us clean up the power grid.
If you choose to participate in SCP CleanCharge, you will receive an email from eMotorWerks asking you to sign a “CISR Form.” The form, entitled “Customer Information Service Request for DRP,” is required by PG&E to allow our contractor, eMotorWerks, to access your meter data. If you have questions about completing the CISR form, please call eMotorWerks at 844-584-2329 for assistance. If you have questions eMotorWerks cannot answer, you can contact PG&E at Rule24Program@pge.com or 415-973-6500.
