Special Electricity Rates for EV Drivers
Our residential EV rates are often lower than investor-owned utility rates, providing EV drivers a cost-effective way of charging their car at home. MCE’s EV rates are based on the time of day when a car is charged, with incentives for charging during off-peak usage hours like at night when charging is least expensive. This helps to support the grid by shifting load away from times of the day when usage is high and there is more strain on the grid towards times when generation is plentiful and overall usage is low.
EV rates apply to all of your household electricity usage, so even your late night TV binge watching will be cheaper! You’ll want to avoid charging during peak periods when rates are higher.
