About the Program
Clark Public Utilities is excited to announce the launch of our new electric vehicle managed charging program in partnership with Optiwatt. As more customers adopt EVs in Clark County, programs like this one will help the utility manage power supply costs, help plan and prioritize system updates and maintain affordability of service.
The program will run through the end of 2024 and participants will receive a $50 bill credit incentive per EV that joins the program (a $25 bill credit will be applied to your utility account when you sign up and a second $25 bill credit will be applied at the end of the year). If you have more than one EV in your household, you can register up to two EVs and received incentive bill credits for both. If you have questions about the program, please contact us at [email protected].
How it Works
Participating EV owners will be included in scheduled charging events. These events typically last about four hours and will be scheduled several times each month through 2024. Customers will always have the ability to opt out of these events if participating would cause an inconvenience.
By participating in the program, customers agree to allow Optiwatt in partnership with Clark Public Utilities to manage your vehicle’s charging. Aside from the scheduled charging events, the Optiwatt app can help you conveniently optimize your charging while ensuring your car is charged when you need it.
- Each participating EV will receive a $25 utility bill credit upon completing enrollment, and another $25 utility bill credit upon program completion at the end of 2024. Incentives will be provided as a bill credit directly on your Clark Public Utilities account.
- Customers will receive free access to the Optiwatt app, which contains many valuable features for understanding and controlling your electric vehicle’s home charging.
- Participation in this pilot program is limited to 800 electric vehicles.
- Customers can choose to drop out of the program at any time, however dropping out of the program forfeits the second $25 bill credit incentive and customers will not be able to reenroll in the program during 2024.
