The below pricing options offer a lower cost overnight and on weekends. These pricing options could help you save on your energy cost for charging your EV compared to being on the standard residential rate of 15 cents per kWh.
Prices per kilowatt hour are rounded to the nearest cent. Rates shown do not include applicable surcharges or taxes. Rates may change by Michigan Public Service Commission order.
An electrician will install an additional meter at your home, dedicated solely to your EV charger. The additional meter helps you to take advantage of a reduced energy rate for your EV charging. That reduced rate is available Monday through Friday from 11 pm to 9 am and all weekend.
The EV Plan is beneficial if your home's current electrical panel does not have capacity for the additional load required by a Level 2 charger.
Applying to all energy used at your home, including your EV charger, this plan features a lower energy rate Monday through Friday from 7 pm to 11 am and/or during the weekend.
The Time-of-Day plan helps you save if your energy consumption patterns are flexible. Manage most of your energy usage - including charging your EV and running appliances like your washer, dryer and dishwasher – on weekdays between 7 pm to 11 am and during weekends for lower energy costs.
DPP is a three-tiered rate that allows customers with flexible energy consumption patterns to save money on their bill.
By shifting your home energy usage, including EV charging, to “off-peak” hours (11 pm – 7 am Monday - Friday, weekends and holidays), you reduce energy costs. During times of extremely high demand for electricity, a Critical Peak Pricing event may be called. During an event, the cost of electricity rises. Learn more about Dynamic Peak Pricing.
