EV Pilot Program

If you own an EV, you may be eligible to participate in a new pilot program that provides monthly bill credits.

How does it work?

Co-op members sign up to join the program and receive an approval e-mail with instructions on completing the registration process. Once your application is processed, you’ve granted permission for your co-op to receive monthly off-peak charging data from your EV. This transfer of data is collected through a trusted, third-party vendor without any work on your behalf.

Members can program their EVs to charge between the hours of 10 p.m. and 6 a.m. at their home (eastern prevailing time) for all days of the year, while participating in the program. Programming the charging time eliminates the need to manually “plug in” for those times. You simply plug in whenever you want and the setting will power up automatically. While programming isn’t required for participation, it can help maximize your savings.

Your co-op will use the charging information to apply a monthly bill credit of $.02 per kWh of off-peak charging completed by your EV while at home.

That’s it! In the event that you need a charge during peak times, no problem. There is no penalty for charging during peak times; you will be billed at your co-op’s normal kWh rate. Plus, you can discontinue participation at any time by contacting your local co-op.


Charging your EV as soon as you arrive home (typically at peak demand times in the early evening), creates a significant demand on your co-op and the grid, resulting in increased cost for the co-op. By delaying your charge time to after 10 p.m., you can reduce the energy demand cost during those peak times. It helps your co-op keep rates low and helps you save money.

Who can participate?

  • Any residential-rate member of participating Kentucky’s Touchstone Energy Cooperatives who charges an EV at home with Level 2 electric vehicle supply equipment (240 volt).
  • Members’ EV must be included in the compatibility list of the energy software platform utilized for this program.

Driving an electric vehicle has many perks. Now, your local, participating Kentucky’s Touchstone Energy Cooperative has added one more way for you to save!
