Clean Vehicle Electricity and Natural Gas Rate Reduction - PG&E
PG&E offers two electric vehicle rate plans for residential customers. EV-A combines your vehicle's electricity costs with those of your residence. EV-B involves the installation of another meter, which separates your vehicle's electricity costs from those of your home.
Both EV-A and EV-B are non-tiered, time-of-use plans, which means that the rate you pay is based on the time of day you use the electricity. Costs are lowest from 11 p.m. to 7 a.m. when demand is lowest, making this the best time to charge your vehicle. Electricity is more expensive during Peak (2-9 p.m.) and Partial-Peak (7 a.m.-2 p.m. and 9-11 p.m.) periods.
PG&E's service area stretches from Eureka in the north to Bakersfield in the south, and from the Pacific Ocean in the west to the Sierra Nevada in the east.
- Residential consumption for customers will vary depending on whether an electric vehicle is charged at work or in public locations.
- Customers are allowed to change their rate schedule twice in the first 12 months, but after the second rate change they must remain on the new rate for 12 months.
- If they opt to install a meter dedicated to their electric vehicle, they are only eligible for EV-B on that meter. Their house, however, will be eligible for PG&E's other rate plans.
- EV-A and EV-B customers are ineligible for the following programs: CARE, FERA, Medical Baseline, SmartRate™ and PG&E Employee Discount.
- Time-of-Use (Peak Pricing 4-9 p.m. Weekdays) E-TOU-B customers are ineligible for the PG&E Employee Discount.
- Medical Baseline customers do not receive additional medical baseline allotment on the Time-of-Use (Peak Pricing 4-9 p.m. Weekdays) E-TOU-B.
