The Wellesley Municipal Light Plant and the Wellesley Sustainable Energy Committee have launched a new program for electric vehicle (EV) drivers called Bring Your Own Charger® (BYOC). BYOC encourages drivers to charge their vehicles overnight in exchange for an $8.00 credit on their electric bill each month—the equivalent of 3,000 miles of free driving per year!
Wellesley is one of the top cities in the state for EV adoption. Driving electric helps keep our air clean and lowers carbon emissions, a town-wide goal. This program takes that one step further, encouraging owners to shift to overnight hour charging (10pm to 12pm Monday – Friday and anytime on the weekends). Doing so will:
Help keep town-wide electric rates low
- Offer EV owners $8 monthly credit = 3,000 miles of free driving a year
- Pull from the cleanest, lowest emitting non peak hour energy
- Indirectly minimize carbon pollution
- Extend EV battery life

Then simply program your vehicle to charge between the hours of 10pm and noon Monday to Friday or anytime on the weekend, and upload a photo of the schedule.
To learn more about this program visit www.wellesleyma.gov/byoc or contact the Town’s partner, Sagewell at 781-303-4994 or firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
