WIN Energy REMC is offering a new electric vehicle program for member-consumers purchasing or leasing a fully electric vehicle, also known as an EV. As part of the program, member-consumers can receive a Level 2 residential EV charger at no cost. Installation and maintenance costs are not included. Data from the electric vehicle charger will be used to better design future EV programs. WIN Energy REMC has a limited number of free chargers that will be offered on a first come, first served basis. The chargers are able to charge all EVs on the market (Tesla Vehicles will require an adaptor) and connect with Amazon Alexa or Google Home devices.
The chargers are Enel X JuiceBox 40amp wifi enabled residential EV charger. The charger can be installed indoors or outdoors and has a 25 foot cord for easy charging.
The electric vehicle charger is free for anyone purchasing or leasing a fully electric battery electric vehicle that also meets other program criteria. The member-consumer will be responsible for charger installation and any operation or maintenance expenses. The chargers have a 3-year warranty and are able to be connected to a desktop or mobile app so that the member-consumer can control and see data from their charger.
To install the EV charger, you will need a 50-amp NEMA 14-50 four-prong outlet. It is recommended that a qualified electrician install the charging station and outlet on a dedicated 50-amp circuit. If you do not have a 50-amp circuit available, the charger is able to lower its output to safely charge your EV. Some EVs charge at a lower rating (e.g. Nissan Leaf charge at 30-amp) and may not be able to use the full output of the charger.
In order to receive the charger, the member-consumer will have to provide proof of purchase of a new or used fully electric vehicle, have internet access and agree to install and connect the charger within 45 days, and agree to let the cooperative have access to the charging data.
