Frequently Asked Questions
 

+ Am I eligible to join Charge the North?

You are eligible for this program if you live in Canada and own or lease a plug-in electric vehicle – either a plug-in hybrid electric vehicle or battery electric vehicle.

+ What do I get? Is there a cost to participate?

You’ll receive a C2 device and gain access to advanced EV stats from FleetCarma dashboard at no cost. We cover shipping as well.

+ What happens after I register?

We'll review your application to confirm eligibility. If accepted, we will send you a FleetCarma C2 with instructions for installation and how to activate your C2.

+ Can you tell me more about the device?

The C2 was developed by FleetCarma to give electric vehicle drivers access to a wealth of information about their cars like driving efficiency, battery health, and more. It makes EV data access easy, comparable, and shareable. The C2 fits in the palm of your hand, and is installed into the on-board diagnostics port in your electric vehicle – this is called the OBD port. For Tesla vehicles, it is installed in a proprietary diagnostics connector using an adapter cable. From there, the C2 gathers data directly from your vehicle’s internal systems, processes it, and makes it available to you through your FleetCarma dashboard.

+ Can I still use the device without an OBD port?

Yes. For Teslas and other vehicles with alternative OBD setups, the C2 device is installed in a proprietary diagnostics connector using a supplied adaptor cable.

+ What information is collected and why?

With electric vehicle sales on the rise, utilities need to capture real-world charging data from their service area. Real-world charging data is necessary for utilities to make informed decisions about their infrastructure and ensure they are ready to provide EV owners a good charging experience. The C2 collects: Charging Information — The amount of charging energy consumed is collected in order to provide you with charging behavior feedback. Driving Information – Used to calculate energy efficiency in miles per gallon equivalent (MPGe) and watt-hours per mile (Wh/mile). Location Information – GPS charging location coordinates will be used to determine where Canadian EV owners need charging stations and where they currently charge. For more details on the handling of your personal information, please refer to the Program Terms and Conditions. Information that can identify you personally will not be made public or given to organizations outside of FleetCarma and our participating partners (Alectra Utilities, BC Hydro, Oakville Hydro, Burlington Hydro, Waterloo North Hydro, Nova Scotia Power, Hydro-Québec, Bruce Power, Toronto Hydro, NB Power, University of Waterloo, and AddÉnergie Technologies Inc.

+ How do I install the device?

Link to PDF and/or installation video.

+ Do I have to participate for a certain amount of time?

Yes, by signing up for Charge the North and receiving your free FleetCarma C2 device, you are agreeing to clip in as soon as possible and remain clipped in until March 31, 2019.

+ Is GPS information shared?

GPS information is collected, but not shared at the individual level. The data is collected and stored but no one outside of FleetCarma will see an individual's location data. The GPS data will be aggregated for the purpose of showing utility service area charging.
