MARIN COUNTY, Calif. and SAN CARLOS, Calif., Nov. 15, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- eMotorWerks, an award-winning leading provider of intelligent and connected smart-grid electric vehicle charging solutions, and Marin Clean Energy (MCE), California's first community choice aggregation (CCA) program, announced a cutting-edge private-public partnership that delivers advanced charging solutions, purchase discounts on a range of smart grid enabled charging stations, and charging rewards for residential and commercial customers in the MCE service area. MCE currently provides energy service to an estimated 4,000 electric vehicle owners in its service area and expects over 25,000 by 2020. Customers interested in the SmartCharge EV program, which launches in January 2017, began enrolling this month through the MCE SmartCharge EV website. This collaboration with MCE comes in tandem with eMotorWerks winning the Mobility Category for the 2016 EPIC awards. Winning companies were announced today in Marrakech during the Low Emissions Solutions Conference hosted by the Government of Morocco, WBCSD, the UN Sustainable Development Solutions Network and ICLEI. "Our mission is to build a path to a cleaner planet by lowering energy-related greenhouse gas emissions. Given the growing demand for electric vehicles in our member communities, and the need to incorporate grid information for truly smart charging, we chose to partner with eMotorWerks. Their solutions and services allow us to build a program that can help accelerate EV adoption with renewable energy supply," said Dawn Weisz, CEO of MCE. Through the eMotorWerks cloud-based JuiceNet ® platform, MCE is able to deploy a variety of smart-grid capable EV charging stations that can respond to grid load and pricing conditions. By adapting to real-time conditions, JuiceNet minimizes grid bottlenecks and electricity procurement costs. These dynamic grid and market capabilities enable MCE to further increase its mix of renewable energy, helping to grow local economies, reduce overall greenhouse gas emissions, and provide clean and affordable charging options to its customers. In addition to these benefits, the joint SmartCharge program provides cash back rewards to participants for not charging their EVs at times when demand for electricity is high, while at the same time reducing the need for emissions-heavy sources of energy.
