Frequently Asked Questions


How do I join EV Miles?

Upload the photo/screenshot showing charging time and submit the application. You will be contacted by Sagewell to let you know when your enrollment has been approved.


My family has more than one EV. May I enroll each EV in the EV Miles Program?
Yes!

Please see these instructions for popular makes and models of electric vehicles. If you need additional help, contact Sagewell at ev@sagewell.com or by calling 781-303-4994.


Why does CMLP offer the EV Miles Program?
By charging your EV during off-peak hours, you help reduce peak demand charges incurred by CMLP, keeping all customers’ bills lower. Peak demand charges refer to the extra cost for electricity during weekday afternoons and early evenings, when there is the greatest call for electricity throughout the regional electric grid.


I’m already on CMLP’s Residential Time of Use Rate (TOU Rate) for EV charging. May I participate in the EV Miles Program also?
You may subscribe to CMLP’s TOU Rate or participate in the EV Miles Program, but not both. If you have not already incurred the expense associated with installing a second meter in order to subscribe to the TOU rate for EV charging, the EV Miles Program will be more financially advantageous and easier to participate in.


What must I do to remain a participant in good standing in the EV Miles Program?
In May of each year, prior to the summer months in which electricity demand is the highest, CMLP will ask you to send us a new photo or screenshot of your charging timer, showing that it is still programmed to charge only during off-peak hours.


What if I need to charge on-peak in an emergency?
You may charge during the daytime (weekdays, 12 PM to 10 PM) up to 3 times each month, in case of emergency, with the following exception: CMLP will enroll all EV Miles Program participants in our peak demand reduction Google group, which will allow us to send you an email when peak demand is predicted – typically on several hot weekday afternoons or early evenings from June 1st through September 15th each year. If you receive a peak demand reduction notification, you may not charge on-peak for emergency purposes during the time periods described in the notification.


How does CMLP determine whether EV Miles Program participants are charging off peak?
By monitoring electricity usage data.
