Fleet Friendly Charging Rates

Save money now with lower EV charging rates

Interim Rate Waiver

SDG&E's reduced charging rates and simpler billing make the transition to electric vehicles easier and more cost-effective for fleets. SDG&E currently offers an Interim Rate Waiver which allows eligible medium- and heavy-duty fleet customers to take advantage of lower demand charges now.  Beginning in January 2022, SDG&E customers will be able to opt-in to the EV-HP Rate plan, a new rate structure that allows EV fleet customers to choose the amount of power they need to charge their electric vehicles and pay for it with a monthly subscription fee.

Start Saving Money Now with Reduced 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 during can increase the cost of charging and deter businesses from making that transition.

SDG&E has been authorized to offer an Interim Rate Waiver to medium- and heavy-duty fleet customers. This interim rate will allow eligible customers to take advantage of lower demand charges, which help EV fleets save money starting now.

What are the reduced Interim Waiver rates?

The Interim Waiver rates are reduced rates that have a steep differential between on-peak and super off-peak prices to encourage customers to save money by charging during periods of low demand.

The discounted Time of Use (TOU-M) energy charges paid per kilowatt-hour (kWh) are listed below. The Interim Rate Waiver is a temporary rate structure. It will only be available until the EV-HP rate is opened to customers, in January 2022, and will close entirely six months later.

Both the Interim Rate Waiver and the EV-HP Rate are available to a broad range of on- and off-road medium- and heavy-duty vehicles. Find out more about the EV-HP Rate plan, which will go into effect January 2022, by downloading the EV-HP Fact Sheet

Save Money Long Term by Eliminating Demand Charges

Fluctuating electricity prices can deter organizations from making the transition to electric vehicles (EVs). SDG&E’s innovative Electric Vehicle-High Power (EV-HP) rate eliminates unpredictable demand charges by offering customers lower rates and more billing stability through a fixed monthly subscription charge.

Beginning January 2022, customers will be able to opt-in to the EV-HP rate plan. This new rate structure 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.
