Save Money – driving on electricity is like paying $1 a gallon for gasoline. Unlike gas, electricity prices are stable.
Lower Rates – save on fuel costs with EV time-of-use rates. They are lower when you program your EV to charge from midnight to 5 A.M. During this time the demand for electricity is at its lowest.
Technologically Advanced – EV drivers get high performance, smooth acceleration, great torque and quiet comfort from their EVs, as well as the latest in high tech convenience.
Charge at Home – you can avoid gas stations by fueling your EV at home while you sleep, watch TV or play with the kids. You can also fuel at work or while shopping.
Buy Clean, American-produced Fuel – electricity is a domestic fuel produced by a variety of sources that are increasingly renewable. We invest in your community and aren’t threatening to move off shore or out of state.
Save the Planet – EVs can have zero tail pipe emissions and plug-in hybrids are substantially cleaner than gas burning vehicles. Electric motors are very efficient and require far less energy to operate.
Enjoy the Perks – most EVs and some advanced plug-in hybrid cars are eligible for federal tax incentives and state rebates. Many are also eligible for car pool lane access and receive preferential parking and insurance discounts.
Support the California Economy – clean cars were born in California and the fuel they use is produced in California or nearby. EV-related companies in the state are creating jobs and attracting 70% of the global EV venture capital.
Your Kids will Thank You – a recent national survey showed that a strong majority of Generation Y respondents prefer EVs over any other type of car or truck. Make sure they have that choice by supporting the EV market.
Connected to a Smart, Green Grid – your EV will plug into SDG&E’s smart power grid that is on track to deliver 33% of its electricity from renewable energy sources by 2020.
