Will I see a credit on my electric bill for the “free” charging?
No. You will be reimbursed by Clearview Energy for the kWhs used for charging during the hours of 11pm and 6am.
Why can’t Clearview just credit my electric bill?
Your electric bill is prepared by your utility. Clearview Energy will reimburse you separately.
How is my reimbursement check calculated?
Clearview Energy receives your charging data from the connection made on the ChargePoint web portal. ChargePoint data includes the amount of kWh used while charging during the hours of 11pm and 6am every day of the quarter. At the end of the quarter, we tally up all the kWhs that have been used during the hours of 11pm and 6am. This total is then multiplied by your electric rate. The result is the amount of your reimbursement check
When will I receive my reimbursement check?
Free charging reimbursement checks are issued 4-6 weeks after each calendar quarter end. (Four to six weeks following March 31, June 30, September 30, December 31). If your electric service is disconnected for any reason, or should you elect to switch to another Clearview Energy plan during the quarter you will not qualify for the cash back and reimbursement offers.
What qualifies as reimbursable “free” charging?
The free provision is limited to the energy (kWh) used while charging between the hours of 11:00 PM and 6:00 AM with a monthly cap of 250 kWh and may not exceed the total kWhs billed during the same period. Free nightly charging does not include any charges associated with the ChargePoint charger nor does it include transmission, distribution, and/or fixed charges from the utility’s portion of the bill or any other Clearview Energy fees.
Is there a limit to how much energy that can be reimbursed?
Yes. There is a monthly cap of 250 kWh, and your kWh used during 11:00 PM and 6:00 AM may not exceed the total kWhs billed during the same period.

What would disqualify me from receiving reimbursement for free charging?
To receive reimbursement for free nightly charging, you must be an active Clearview Energy customer enrolled in a ClearCharge electric product through the calendar quarterly period and in good standing with Clearview Energy with no outstanding balance at the end of the calendar quarter.
