Electric Vehicle Climate Credit

Join our interest list for 2018

The EV  Climate Credit is closed for 2017, however you can join our interest list for 2018.  We will email you early next year when applications open.

If you applied for the credit prior to the program close, you should receive your $200 bill credit within two billing cycles.   

Information about the program

Beginning first quarter of 2018, if you drive an all-electric or plug-in hybrid vehicle, you may be eligible to receive an annual credit of at least $50 on your SDG&E bill.  

The Electric Vehicle Climate Credit is part of a statewide greenhouse gas reduction program administered by the California Air Resources Board. The program is not funded by utility rates but by regulation meant to increase the adoption of clean-vehicle fuels such as electricity. 

If you continue to own or lease your electric vehicle, you'll be able to apply for the credit every year until the funding period ends in 2020.

Those who qualify will receive a credit on their SDG&E bill within two billing cycles of the program closing in 2018.  This credit is only for electric vehicles registered at a residence, not for commercial fleets.

How to qualify

If you own or lease an all-electric or plug-in hybrid vehicle and you live in the area served by SDG&E, then you may qualify for the Electric Vehicle Climate Credit.

To apply, you'll need:

  • A copy of your CA DMV registration card (or new vehicle dealer notice of temporary identification)
  • To be the registered owner of the EV in the area served by SDG&E 
  • Your SDG&E residential account number (if applicable)

Join our interest list and we will email you when applications open in early 2018.
