Seven reasons to own an electric vehicle
If you’re considering switching to cleaner, greener energy, we support EV drivers with special programs. And if you’re not, these facts might just change your mind.
There’s an EV for every lifestyle
With more than 35 models of plug-in cars, there’s one that’s right for you—and we can help you find it!
- Charging is convenient.
Skip the trip to the gas station, and charge your car while you’re asleep. If you can plug in an appliance, you already know how to charge an EV.
- Some apartment-dwellers can charge, too.
Our EV charging program for apartments and condos will get you charged where you need it most, at home.
- Pay less at the plug with a special price.
SDG&E offers a special pricing plan to help EV drivers save money. Program your EV to charge during super off-peak hours (midnight-6 a.m.) for the cheapest electricity price.
- Who doesn’t love cleaner air?
With about 45 percent of our region's grid made up of renewable energy (and no coal), it makes sense for the environment - especially since full electric cars produce zero emissions.
- They’re eligible for generous rebates and benefits.
Most new EVs are eligible for a $7,500 federal tax incentive, a $2,500 state rebate, our annual Electric Vehicle Climate Credit and single occupant access to the carpool lane.
- EVs got the moves!
EV drivers get high performance, quick acceleration, and a quiet comfortable ride.
