WeaveGrid launches EV program with Alabama Power and Georgia Power

WeaveGrid, a San Francisco-based software provider, will collaborate with Southern Company subsidiary Alabama Power to launch an innovative new program for electric vehicle (EV) owners in the Alabama Power service footprint. The company is simultaneously working with Georgia Power, piloting a similar program for a limited number of EV owners in Georgia.

The program aims to support EV adoption by simplifying home charging for customers in both states, offering streamlined access to electric utility incentives for charging vehicles during off-peak periods, as well as managed charging that optimizes charging for economic and grid benefits.

Georgia Power and Alabama Power customers who participate will be able to optimize their home charging and access exclusive EV benefits. Customer enrollment is facilitated through WeaveGrid's user-friendly evPulse platform. The platform supports qualifying Tesla, Kia, Hyundai, Toyota or Lexus vehicles, and Wallbox® or ChargePoint® home charging stations.

EV owners who participate will have access to benefits such as:

  • Up to $100 of incentives, including a $50 sign-up incentive and additional incentives for ongoing participation.
  • Visibility into home charging costs through a personalized dashboard and weekly charge summary emails.
  • Optimization to simplify home charging by automatically charging at the most cost-effective times.

In addition to the consumer benefits, utilities like Georgia Power and Alabama Power are interested in learning from these efforts to support greater grid flexibility, enhance grid reliability and further encourage EV growth.

"Southern Company is proud to collaborate with WeaveGrid on this very innovative value-added program,” said Hank Adams, senior vice president of Customer Solutions for Southern Company. "The WeaveGrid EV program aligns perfectly with our vision of a clean energy future and demonstrates our commitment to providing customers with the tools and resources they need to embrace sustainable transportation options."

"We are thrilled to be working with Southern Company to launch our EV program in Alabama and to pilot that program in Georgia," said Apoorv Bhargava, WeaveGrid CEO. "The program is designed to help Southern Company accelerate EV adoption in the Southeast,” added Bhargava. “It exemplifies our commitment to making EV ownership effortless and rewarding, and we believe it will serve as a model for similar initiatives across the country."
