What are the participation parameters for the trial?

The following Project Participant Parameters detail your minimum requirements that you must uphold for the duration of the trial to remain a Project Participant.

We would encourage participants to plug in their Nissan EV whenever the vehicle is at home, even if a charge isn’t required.

These participation parameters include, but are not limited to:

  1. From the installation date of the V2G charger, this charger should be the primary source of charging the EV. This includes in the preparation phase of the trial during 2020, before the official trial begins in June 2021, through to June 2022
  2. Completion of a minimum of 10 full* charge cycles per month to keep your place on the trial and use of the V2G charger over the trial period
  3. Completion of at least 15 full* charge cycles per month to be eligible for the rewards incentive**
  4. Use of the CrowdCharge mobile app to manage charging preferences

*Timings subject to change as the project develops. A ‘full charge cycle’ is plugging in an EV and leaving it connected continuously to the V1G/V2G charger during the hours of 18:00 through to 05:00 the next day. If the EV is disconnected at any point during this period, it will not count towards your monthly total of full charge cycles. This term ‘full’ does not mean your EV will charged to ‘full’ each time you complete a charge cycle; it just refers to the charge cycle process. You would input your minimum discharge range and also what final charge state is required for the next day via the CrowdCharge app to determine your charge status at the end of the charging cycle.

**Each eligible participant will receive the minimum reward to the monetary value of £10 per month for the duration of the one-year trial, from June 2021 – June 2022. The full details of the ‘reward’ will be confirmed during summer 2020 with our energy supplier partners.

Note: The ability to earn the rewards incentive will commence on the initiation of the customer trial in June 2021, for a one-year period, concluding in June 2022. If you do not complete 15 charge cycles per month, you will not receive the incentive reward unless otherwise stated in your allocated energy supplier proposition document. You will be allowed to remain on the trial assuming you complete the minimum of 10 charge cycles.

Customer trial start date may be delayed due to COVID-19 outbreak and Government guidance. CrowdCharge will inform all participants of any updates.
