Charging Your EV Overnight
Electric vehicle owners will see instant savings on all Time of Use price plans by charging overnight. Super Off Peak and Night rates are about 40% lower than Off Peak or standard rates. High capacity EV batteries may consume 30 to 50 KwH in one charging cycle. If you charge your EV overnight 365 days a year, you'll save 40% compared to charging on standard rates.
Most, if not all, electric vehicles and EV chargers come with a timer that lets you charge your EV at a specific time. To charge on the lowest cost, Super Off Peak overnight rate, all you have to do is just set the "End" or "To" time for 6am. You do not have to set the "Start" or "From" time.
