Eversource ConnectedSolutions EV FAQ
- When will I receive my incentive?
Your enrollment incentive will be sent to you via mail 4-6 weeks after your enrollment is confirmed. Yearly incentive payments will be mailed to you at the end of this year and the next two years.
- Will adjustments affect my charging speed?
During an adjustment your EV will charge more slowly. However, if you need to charge more quickly you can opt out of the adjustment at any time by adjusting your charger back to its normal settings.
- How will I be notified of adjustments?
You will receive notification the day before an adjustment via email and EV charger mobile app where available. The notification will give you details on the timing and duration of the adjustment. If an emergency event is called, you will receive an email notification the day of the event.
- Where can I find the Program Rules?
Program Rules Event Timing Eversource can make adjustments to your EV charging throughout the day, on weekdays and weekends year-round, for a maximum of 15 times per month. Events will typically be 3 hours in length. Between 6 pm and 6 am, Eversource will guarantee at least 4 hours of uninterrupted charging so you’ll always have enough miles for your commute the next day. Events will not be called on holidays. You may opt out of a demand response event at any time. Charging Speed During demand response events, your EV charger will be slowed down to no less than 1.8 kW (equivalent to plugging into a wall outlet) to reduce load on the electric grid. Notifications Eversource will provide day ahead notifications for events that are called, with the exception of emergency events. Emergency Events During conditions of especially heavy load on the grid, Eversource may call an emergency event. Emergency events will provide notification same-day or at the time of the event, and EV charging may either be slowed to 1.8 kW or completely paused for the duration of the event. Emergency events will be called no more than once per month.
