The road to finding the right rate starts with our easy-to-use electric vehicle (EV) Rate Assistant tool. Taking your home, family size, schedule, and lifestyle into account, it shows you how charging at home will affect your bill and helps determine a rate that is right for you. You can also see how electric fueling stacks up against filling the tank with gasoline.
EV owners who charge at night can benefit from our TOU plans, which feature lower electricity rates on nights and weekends when energy is in less demand. Explore our TOU plans to find the right one for your household.
Our rate plan for electric vehicles (TOU-EV-1) offers affordable night and morning rates for EV charging stations. This plan requires a separate meter to measure the energy used to charge your EV and does not affect billing for the rest of your home.
If you charge your EV during daytime hours, our traditional Tiered Rate Plan may be suitable for you. Customers in this plan pay a single rate for a “baseline” amount of energy each month. Once that allotment is used, the rate climbs to the next-priced tier. EV owners may benefit from other plans.
If you choose the Residential Time-Of-Use Plan or the Electric Vehicle Plan, plugging in during Off-Peak and Super Off-Peak hours can make a big difference on your bill. These plans have been designed for EV owners to charge when electricity prices are lowest, usually overnight. Even if you decide to remain on the Residential Plan, charging at night is always a good idea. It won’t generate savings, but it’s better for the grid and the environment.
