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.
TOU Energy Charges for EV-HP Customers
Note: Summer pricing is June through October. Winter pricing is rounded up and applicable November through May. Prices valid as of 5/29/20.
SDG&E works with fleets to help determine their estimated monthly power needs, based on maximum total power demand each month. If maximum monthly demand is:
