Electric Car Rate Options

Plug In to the Right Rate

We offer 2 rate schedules designed for businesses planning to charge electric vehicles. Learn more about your options here; then, call us for assistance in selecting the rate schedule that best fits your business’ day-to-day operations and budget. If you are a property manager, you may be eligible for a residential rate schedule.

Using Your Existing Rate Schedule

If you prefer, you may combine your new electric vehicle charging load with existing non-residential load on a single meter. In this case, all of your business’ energy will be priced on a single rate. Existing rate components—such as time-of-use periods, energy charges or demand charges—may apply. If the combined existing non-residential load and electric vehicle charging load is above 500 kilowatts on 1 meter, load must be served on the TOU-8 rate.

Rate Schedules for Electric Vehicles

We offer 2 non-residential, separately-metered rate options specifically for charging electric vehicles. These rates may help lower your bill, particularly if most of your charging takes place off-peak between 9 p.m. and noon. The TOU-EV-3 rate is designed for smaller commercial premises; the TOU-EV-4 plan is designed for larger commercial premises.

Rate Option 1: TOU-EV-3

TOU-EV-3 has two rate options: Option A and Option B. Option A is the same rate structure that was previously available within Schedule TOU-EV-3, with no Facilities Related Demand (FRD) charges. Under the new Option B, a service account will be billed FRD charges that are based on the monthly maximum registered kW demand.

This separately metered rate is designed for electric vehicle charging at non-residential premises served under a General Service rate schedule. The electric vehicle load served under TOU-EV-3 cannot exceed 20 kilowatts (kW). Be sure to let your installer know you’ll require a 2nd meter when you request a quote.
