Get Started - Rates and Enrollment

Customers charging EVs at home have several electricity rate options. Customers may stay on their current residential rate or may qualify for a time-of-use rate which provides an opportunity to save by using energy during certain times of day when solar power is most abundant.

Commercial customers may qualify for an electrical rate for including one or more charging stations on their own electric service.
