Your charging station could earn you money this winter

You've done it! You've decided to buy a charging station. And what if it also made you money? The Hilo intelligent solution for electric vehicle charging is an ingenious tool that lets you optimize your electricity consumption and relieve the strain on the power grid, while accumulating cash rewards. Here's how it works.

Thanks to Hilo and its electric vehicle (EV) charging solution, you can make an important ecological gesture simply by charging your EV during off-peak hours. What's more, you'll be helping to lighten the load on the power grid.

Thanks to connected devices such as smart thermostats, wall outlets and compatible EV charging stations, Hydro-Québec's Hilo smart home service lets you better manage your electricity consumption. What's more, it rewards you monetarily when you succeed in its energy reduction challenges.

The growing number of electric vehicles (EVs) is increasing the number of users charging their cars simultaneously. This increases the demand on the already overstretched electrical grid, especially in winter.
You can link selected EVduty electric vehicle charging stations to your Hilo app, thanks to our partnership with Elmec. A smart way to recharge your vehicle that lets you earn rewards during Hilo challenges.

The Hilo solution lets you earn cash rewards for completing challenges during peak periods.

Simply add your compatible terminal to the Hilo app and you're ready to go.

Every winter, during periods of high demand, Hilo launches energy reduction challenges.

It's simple: the more you participate, the more cash rewards you earn - an average of $140 per customer per winter.

Is Ford planning an electric version of the Bronco?
