Do I need to have a Level 2 charger to participate?

While Level 1 chargers are able to participate in Charging Perks, it is recommended that you participate with a Level 2 charger to get the most out of the program benefits.

If you'd like to upgrade to a Level 2 charger, Xcel Energy has multiple offerings to help.

Get up to $500 to offset the cost of installing a charger with the EV Charger and Wiring Rebate.

Or opt in to the EV Accelerate at Home program to rent a qualified L2 charger and have Xcel take care of the installation and set up.

How does Automatic Smart Charging work in the Charging Perks program?

Enroll in Charging Perks to have your charging optimized during the most cost-effective times of use.

WeaveGrid prioritizes your charging for when it’s least expensive, also taking the grid into consideration to protect it from excessive stress during periods of high demand.

Your daily smart schedule is determined by your vehicle’s charging needs, your rate, and a variety of dynamic live signals, including energy cost, grid stress, and renewable energy availability.

All you need to do is set your target battery level and ready-by time. After that, simply plug in every day, and your car will be ready to go when you need it.

You have complete control over your settings, and can opt to receive text notifications about your upcoming schedule.

While it’s best to stick to your smart schedule as much as possible to maximize savings, you have the option to override your schedule if needed.

How does WeaveGrid collect and use data?

After creating a WeaveGrid account, you will be prompted to sign into your EV account to establish a connection between your vehicle and WeaveGrid.

WeaveGrid then receives your vehicle data in order to provide the program experience and benefits.

This EV data includes information such as how much EV charging has occurred, when EV charging occurs, and whether EV charging occurred at home or away from home.

We maintain stringent data security and privacy protection procedures to ensure no details about our users, or their charging and driving patterns, are misused or disclosed to unauthorized parties.
