EV Charger Time-Of-Use (TOU) Program


Apply for the Time-Of-Use Program (TOU) to save money while charging your Electric Vehicle (EV)! When you program your EV charger to  charge your EV during the program time duration of 10pm to 7am, a discount will be applied to your billing rate. This deters charging during peak hours when electricity is in high demand.  To help relieve stress on the electric infrastructure system, there will be a penalty rate added to the regular billing rate if charging occurs outside of the program time duration.  Although emergency load shed events are not imminent, this program is meant to curtail power use during peak hours.

Terms and Conditions

  • Available only to residential customers.
  • Available only for level II charger.
  • A rebate of $325 for a charger with full battery EV, and $215 rebate for a plug-in hybrid.
  • Off-peak rates are currently 10pm to 7am daily for discounted EV Rate. Any power used at the off-peak time would be subject to a discount.
  • Peak Premium Rates from 7am to 10pm with added charge. Any power used at the peak time would be subject to a premium.
  • All rates are subject to change.
  • Will require investment in a separate meter. Currently priced at $300 (75% of the meter cost), subject to change as meter costs change.
  • A residential EV meter will come off the main panel and feed to an EV subpanel or receptacle dedicated for EV feeds.
