Pay less to charge your electric vehicle (EV) overnight.

EV drivers have the option to charge at night and on weekends for a reduced electric price. This pricing plan is ideal for those who can wait to charge their vehicle at night and on weekends but want to use electricity in their homes at any time of day.

  • If you charge overnight from 9:00 p.m. to 9:00 a.m. Monday through Friday, and at any time on weekends, the cost to charge will be about half of the normal cost of energy.
  • If you charge from 9:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. Monday through Friday, the cost to charge will be about double the normal cost of energy.

Additional $4.95 monthly service charge for the additional EV meter.

Requirements

To participate in the EV Pricing Plan, you will need to have a second meter installed. You'll need to work with a certified electrician to install a meter socket and perform any additional wiring. The upfront cost of this work will vary per house and depend heavily on the distance between your charging location and the location of your current service panel and electric meter.

Energy Saving Tip

Install ceiling fans to keep cool air circulating so you can turn down your air conditioner. Still, make sure to turn off your fan when you leave the room.

Break Ground, Not the Law

Always call 811 before digging in your yard to avoid hitting buried gas or electric lines. Not only is it the safe thing to do, but it's the law.
