Submetering & Billing for Electric Vehicles

 

 

EV Submetering Phase 1 Pilot customer enrollment period, which began September 1, 2014, is closed as of  August 31, 2015.


Good news for electric vehicle (EV) drivers in Southern California: We will be rolling out a new Phase 2 of the Submetering Pilot program that will allow you to install a submeter to measure your car’s energy use for billing purposes. This will enable us to bill you at a separate EV rate for your vehicle, and your current rate for all other usage. Details, including customer enrollment period dates to follow, as available.

 

 

Phase 1 Submeter Pilot Program Frequently Asked Questions

 

Can I view my EV submeter usage on My Account, Green Button or Budget Assistant on SCE.com?

Submetering usage will appear on your billing statement but may or may not be visible or accurate on MyAccount, Green Button, or Budget Assistant because the submeter billing usage and cost information is only calculated once per billing cycle.

Will my Submeter MDMA receive a summary of my monthly EV bill?

Yes, if you authorized SCE to send your MDMA a summary of your monthly electric vehicle (EV) bill.

or

No, if you have not authorized SCE to send your MDMA a summary of your monthly EV bill.

Will my bill clearly state my usage from both my Primary meter and EV Submeter?

Yes. Your energy usage totals for both the Primary meter and EV Submeter will appear on a single billing statement or 12 billing cycles. To bill the EV charging usage on the appropriate rate schedule, we created a new Service Account # which will be reflected on your billing statement. At the conclusion of the pilot, we will close the EV Service Account # and resume billing your total usage, including EV charging, on your Primary Service Account and rate.

I am thinking about enrolling in the Level Pay Plan. Can I still participate in the pilot?

If your Submeter MDMA remits payment, on your behalf, for the EV portion of your monthly bill, and you enroll in the Level Pay Plan - you would not be eligible to continue to participate in the Phase 1 Pilot.

I am thinking about enrolling in Direct Payment. Can I still participate in the pilot?

If your Submeter MDMA remits payment, on your behalf, for the EV portion of your monthly bill, and you enroll in Direct Payment, you would not be eligible to continue to participate in the Phase 1 Pilot.

Will I need to provide access to my EV submeter at my home or business during the pilot?

To evaluate your EV Submetering Customer Experience, you may be required to provide access to your home or business in order for an independent third party evaluator to perform tests on your EV submeter. Such submeter testing is only required of 5% of participating customers. If your submeter is selected, tests will be arranged at a convenient time, and your EV Submeter MDMA may be present.
