Provide customers with the Gasoline/Electricity Comparison Tool and empower them to calculate the savings they may realize by switching from fossil fuels to EV – by the gallon and in 1 and 5 year increments. The calculator is pre-populated with your average residential kWh rate and the average local gasoline price (editable). The calculation methodology is similar to the widely utilized DOE methodology, but we believe our outputs are easier to understand than the DOE eGallon model.
Choose EV staff will review and update local gasoline prices on a quarterly basis and will update the calculator if/when utility’s residential kWh rate is adjusted.
Carbon Reduction Calculator
Provide your customers with a simple Carbon Reduction Calculator that demonstrates the tremendous reduction in carbon emissions EV represents. The calculator is designed to be customized based on your utility’s fuel mix, typically driven by your CA Clean Air Board score (MT CO2 per MWh).
Choose EV staff can update your carbon number as frequently as needed.
EV Model Review Tool
The EV Review Tool includes a list of EVs that can be sorted and filtered by users seeking general performance information about EV. The review tool is powered by EV model information acquired through the US Department of Energy.
Choose EV staff maintains a current database of available EVs (updated monthly).
EV Incentive Calculator
Provide your customers with simple tool that helps them determine the estimated cost of a new EV with incentives stacked in one convenient location. Incentives from the Federal government, the the state and other entities will be stacked to help utility customers determine final cost.
Choose EV program staff can regularly update the incentive calculator to reflect existing incentives and program initiatives. Multiple incentive calciulators can be developed to promote various initiatives, such as bulk buy programs and unique dealer/manufacturer promotions.
The EV Facts section is designed to provide customers with rich information about all key issues and components associated with EV ownership. All text is editable and may include additional diagrams and imagery. Inform customers about the key aspects of EV technology and ownership:
• EV car types (BEV/PBEV/HEV etc.)
• General EV range information
• Emissions Information
• Operation cost information
• Battery information
• Charging options and information
Promotions and Recomendations
The EV Promotions and Incentives Directory allows you to create and manage custom EV offers and promotions through an easy-to-use administrative interface. All promotions are automatically converted into printable one-pager descriptions on custom utility letterhead. This reduces ongoing design costs and shortens time-to-market significantly.
• Manage Ride-and-Drive Events in Real-time

Charger Finder (DOE version)
Help your customers understand where they can find EV charging stations with a simple charging station locator tool that utilizes regularly refreshed data from the DOE. This tool is owned and operated by the US Department of Energy and is managed by NREL and the Alternative Fuels Data Center. We provide this tool free-of-charge.
Charger Installer Directory
Help your customers find a qualified level 2 240V EV charger installer. Directory can be populated with your approved installers. Installers can be activated and deactivated with a single click through an easy-to-use administrative interface (no code required) by utility or our implementation team.
Administrative Implementation Services Available
• Define installer inclusion criteria
• Select installers to include

EV Survey Tool
Our survey system is a powerful customer outreach tool that allows you to build a strong database of customer interests and home/work building attributes, including important indicators such as off-street parking availability and resident commute distances. The survey experience is elegant, fun-to-use and links information directly to your service locations – verified by address and primary phone number or account number.
Choose EV program staff will work to ensure the survey secures the most pertinent customer data relative to electric vehicle ownership. Our team will also summarize and report survey data trends and analysis on a quarterly basis.
