FREE LEVEL-2 VEHICLE CHARGER
As part of our efforts to accelerate clean transportation alternatives in Massachusetts while effectively managing our distribution system, Shrewsbury Electric & Cable Operations is partnering with our energy efficiency program manager MMWEC, to provide free Wi-Fi-equipped Level 2 residential electric vehicle chargers to customers signing on to our Scheduled Charging Program.
What is a Scheduled Charging Program?
Scheduled charging is a set schedule to determine when you can and cannot use your charger at full power. Through the Wi-Fi connection enabled in your charger, SELCO can set the charger to charge at a Level 1 rate (1.25KW) during periods of peak energy usage for the rest of our distribution system.
Between the hours of 5:00 p.m. and 9:00 p.m. on non-holiday weekdays, your charger will function the same as a standard Level 1, plug in wall charger. Outside of this time period, the charger will automatically unlock to allow you full Level 2 fast-charging functionality.
Sometimes major events happen on the electrical system outside of our control. To respond to these events, emergency scheduling allows SELCO to temporarily access your charger via Wi-Fi connection to lower your charging rate until the event passes. This limits strain to our system and allows us to continue to deliver low-cost, reliable electric service to Shrewsbury customers.
How to Receive Your FREE Level 2 Home EV Charger
Customers with an electric vehicle should call 413-589-0141 or email
email@example.com to confirm program participation eligibility. All necessary forms will be provided to the customer once they are determined to be eligible for participation in the program.
Once eligibility is confirmed, the customer must submit a Scheduled Charging/Free EV Charger program application along with proof of vehicle ownership, signed charging agreement, and a copy of their most recent electric bill to MMWEC.
Once the application is approved, the homeowner must provide SELCO with the name of licensed electrician who will be installing their Level 2 charger. The licensed electrician will be able to pick up the Level 2 Charging Unit at the SELCO office when submitting paperwork for the required electrical permit (note: the typical EV permit fee is $50, but may vary depending on required work for installation).
Upon installation of the unit, the customer will be required to complete registration and connection of the charging device to their home Wi-Fi network. Once registration is complete, the customer will be registered with SELCO's Electric Vehicle Scheduled Charging Program.
