How can I win prizes?

You can win prizes by participating in our monthly EV Leaderboard, Smart Home Leaderboard, Lucky Dip and Manual Control Prize Draw.

EV Leaderboard

Participate in the monthly EV leaderboard and finish in the top 3 each month to win 1500, 1000 and 500 for finishing in 1st, 2nd and 3rd position respectively. 

You will be awarded points for smart charging your car. Points are awarded in a number of ways, including participating in equivents and charging according to your tariff. Read more on how points are awarded here

To participate simply head to your account settings and opt-in to the leaderboard. Then simply connect your EV to the equiwatt app, select your preferences and make sure to enable equivents and smart charging if you have a time of use tariff.  

The EV points leaderboard resets to zero at the end of every month and you can track your long term points earnings on the homepage of the equiwatt app.

Smart Home Leaderboard

Finish in first, second or third place on our monthly leaderboard for smart control participation and you will win a prize of 1500, 1000 or 500 points respectively.

The monthly leaderboard ranks users according to points that have been awarded to appliances connected for smart control participation during equivents. Points are calculated based on the amount of energy your appliance has saved during an equivent. Connect your device using a smart plug to power-hungry appliances and opt-in to take part via the app. Add more appliances to boost your points and your rank on the leaderboard. Each month, the member that tops the table will win a prize or points redeemable in our gift store. 

The smart control points leaderboard resets to zero at the end of every month and you can track your long term points earnings on the home page of the equiwatt app.

Smart Contol Lucky Dip

The Lucky Dip randomly draws a winner every month from Smart Control users who have earned a minimum of 50 points that month by participating in equivents using Smart Contol but finished outside of the top three in the leaderboard.

Any Smart Control user that earns at least 50 points from equivents during a month (regardless of the number and type of appliances switched off and registered) will receive 1 (one) entry into the monthly lucky dip. The users that finish in the top 3 of the Smart Leaderboard will NOT be entered into the lucky dip.

The Smart Control Lucky Dip will reset at the end of every month.

Manual Control Monthly Prize Draw

The Prize Draw randomly draws a winner every month from all entries that have been awarded to appliances set up for manual control during equivents.

Each manual control participation in an equivent (regardless of the number and type of appliances switched off and registered) will reward a user with 1 (one) entry into the monthly prize draw.

Manual participation in 1 equivent = 1 entry
Manual Participation In 6 equivents = 6 entries

The manual control prize draw entries leaderboard resets to zero at the end of every month.
