EV Driver Pilot Program: Separately meter your car’s electricity

Enrollment for the Submetering Pilot will begin on January 16, 2017.

SDG&E and the California Public Utilities Commission are supporting a pilot program open to electric vehicle drivers interested in having their car’s electricity metered separately from their home or business.  The pilot has 500 participants and sign-ups and meter installations are done by third-party vendors.

The benefit to participating in the program is that electric vehicle drivers can be billed under a separate rate for their car’s electricity usage, while their other home or business usage is billed on their current rate. 

The pilot is temporary and is running for 15.5 months beginning January 16, 2017 and ending on April 30, 2018. The goal is to explore the viability of a third-party metering an electric car.
