EnergyHub adds Toyota to its roster of auto brands enabled for utility EV incentive programs – Charged EVs


Distributed Energy Resource Management provider EnergyHub works with some 60 utilities in North America to manage distributed energy resources. Customers of utilities that partner with EnergyHub can take advantage of several types of programs for EV drivers, including managed charging and EV-specific time-of-use rates.

EnergyHub’s system works with numerous charging providers and “all leading EV brands.” EnergyHub has now added Toyota to its roster of auto OEM partners, enabling Toyota and Lexus EV drivers to take advantage of certain utility programs. Maryland-based Potomac Edison is the first utility to enable customers to enroll Toyota and Lexus vehicles via EnergyHub’s platform. EnergyHub plans to expand participation to additional utility programs in 2024.

“Our collaboration with Toyota is a key milestone in EnergyHub’s effort to maximize customer choice through the largest ecosystem of EV OEM and EVSE partners,” said Matt Johnson, VP of Business Development at EnergyHub. “This integration accelerates our work to improve the overall EV ownership experience, while unlocking grid service value for our utility clients.”

“Empowering our Toyota and Lexus EV customers with cost-effective energy solutions that reduce emissions and contribute to the grid underscores Toyota’s commitment to sustainable mobility,” said James George, General Manager, EV Charging Solutions at Toyota.

According to InfluenceMap’s annual report on climate lobbying, Toyota has spent the most on anti-EV lobbying of any automaker, and has announced the third-most-timid 2030 EV production plans. The only Toyota/Lexus battery EVs currently sold in North America are the Toyota bZ4X and its twin, the Lexus RZ, which collectively sold about 15,000 units in the US in 2023.
