The upcoming EV Miles Program will offer you electric bill credits each month when charging is done during off-peak hours: 10 pm to 12 noon, Monday through Friday and all weekend. Minor exceptions are allowed in case of emergency. EV Miles participants send CMLP a photo of their car’s timer display, programmed to charge only during off peak hours. Set it and forget it! CMLP monitors electricity usage data to verify that charging is done off-peak.
You are eligible to participate in the EV Miles Program if you:
own or lease a battery electric vehicle (BEV) that runs exclusively on electricity, or a plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) that runs on electricity but can also switch to gas/electric hybrid mode, and
have a CMLP residential electric account that you use to pay for the electricity that charges your EV.
Owners of PHEVs will receive a $5 credit on their electric bill each month, equal to roughly 355 kWh annually, which will allow most PHEV owners to drive around 1,000 miles each year at no cost. Owners of BEVs will receive a $10 credit on their electric bill each month, equal to approximately 700 kWh annually, which will allow most BEV owners to drive about 2,200 miles each year at no cost.
EV owners charging at either Level 1 or Level 2 speeds may participate in the EV Miles Program. EV owners with solar panels can take advantage of solar electricity production to help charge their vehicles until 12 noon on weekdays and all day on weekends.
We expect the EV Miles Program to be available by the end of October 2018. Sign up to be notified as soon as enrollment begins.
