Save on Your Fleet’s EV Charging by Eliminating Demand Charges

Beyond emission reductions and sustainability goals, long-term cost savings is a major reason that fleets are deploying electric vehicles (EVs). However, fluctuating electricity prices can increase the cost of charging and deter businesses from making that transition.

To provide simpler and more predictable billing, SDG&E has introduced the EV-HP rate plan for customers with medium- and heavy-duty fleets. It allows customers to subscribe to a simple rate plan that is matched to their fleet’s power consumption.

How does the EV-HP Rate Plan Work?

Simple, Stable Monthly Billing

The EV-HP rate plan allows EV fleet customers to choose the amount of power they will need to charge their vehicles and pay for it with a monthly subscription fee—similar to a cell phone plan that lets customers choose the amount of data they will use.

What are the reduced EV-HP rates?

The EV-HP rate plan utilizes reduced Time of Use (TOU) energy charges that are incurred based on the time of day you use electricity, measured in kilowatt hours (kWh). These rates have a steep differential between “on-peak” and “super off-peak” prices to encourage fleet customers to charge during periods of lowest demand.

SDG&E works with fleets to help determine their estimated monthly power needs, based on maximum total power demand each month. If maximum power demand is:
