It’s no secret we are starting to see more electric vehicles on the roads across Virginia. As more drivers switch to EV’s, we’ve expanded our service offering to provide charging solutions suited to meet our customers’ evolving needs.
The EV Charger Rewards program incentivizes residential customers to allow Dominion Energy to leverage their Level 2 EV smart chargers to make adjustments to how they charge during peak times of electricity demand.
To clarify, a Level 2 charger uses a 240V AC circuit and needs extra charging equipment to be installed by a fully qualified electrician. Typically, they deliver between 10 and 60 miles per hour of charging, and they are commonly found in homes, workplaces, and some public charging locations.
How Does the Program Work?
In the EV Charger Rewards program, Dominion Energy manages the times of high stress on the grid and keeps costs low for all customers. Demand Response events will be determined during peak times to ensure vehicles are not charging during peak hours.
These events will last up to four hours, with no more than 45 Energy Events per year and a maximum of 15 per month. You can also choose to opt out of any event if needed through the charger or the app.
If you participate in this program for one year, you will receive a $40 incentive (after your anniversary). This $40 reward will renew each anniversary that you stay enrolled.
To be eligible to enroll, you must meet all these requirements:
- You are a current Dominion Energy Virginia utility residential customer
- You live in a single-family residence
- You have a Wi-Fi capable EV charger that is connected to the internet
