Can I get rewarded for referring a friend?

Yes, both you and your friends can earn rewards through the equiwatt Referral Scheme. Simply invite your friends to sign up using your unique 4 digit code & connect an EV or appliance to unlock your rewards.

How does it work?

There are two ways to earn bonus points from the equiwatt Referral Scheme.

You can refer friends to download and sign up to equiwatt and earn points when they connect either a compatible electric vehicle or a compatible Smart Plug connected to a qualifying household appliance. 

Read on to find out how each of the different referral connections works.

1) New EV connections


Any equiwatt user will earn 1000 bonus points (worth £10) for every referred friend who downloads the equiwatt app, creates an account and connects a compatible electric vehicle

You will also earn an extra 1500 bonus points (worth £15) for the first five referred friends who download the equiwatt app, create an account and connect a compatible electrical vehicle.

Your referred friends will also receive 1000 bonus points (worth £10) once they have successfully signed up and connected a compatible electric vehicle to equiwatt.

Once you click ‘Share Invite’ you will be able to share the invitation with your friends via your chosen platform (e.g. WhatsApp, Facebook, Twitter, Email etc.). Each invitation includes a four-digit referral code which must be entered on the ‘Register’ page by your friends during the sign-up process. We can then make sure your referral points are awarded and that your first five referrals are counted to unlock bonus points.

Once one of your friends has signed up to equiwatt using your referral code and connected a compatible EV, you will receive a notification via the app to your phone. Your 1000 bonus points (worth £10) will be automatically added to your account and your friend will automatically receive their 1000 bonus points too. Your friends sign up will also be logged in the progress bar in the community tab so you can keep track of how far you are from earning your additional 1500 bonus points (worth £15).

Once you have five confirmed referrals, your 1500 bonus points (worth £15) will be automatically added to your account balance and you will receive confirmation via an email (and/or) notification.
