Electric Vehicle Rate

Plug-In to energy savings

Piedmont Electric offers a special rate to members who own a plug-in electric vehicle (EV)*. The EV rate has been designed specifically to benefit EV owners who charge their vehicle overnight. If you’re an EV owner and would like to lower your energy bill, simply switch to the new EV rate, plug-in your vehicle before bed and save money while you sleep!

How do I apply?

It’s easy! Simply provide these three things to Piedmont Electric:

  1. Copy of the electric vehicle registration card corresponding to the associated electric address.
  2. Proof that the vehicle can be recharged from an external plug-in source of electricity.
  3. Notice if ownership or lease of the vehicle changes.

Let us know you’re interested in signing up by filling out our contact form or calling us at 800.222.3107.

What is different?

The off-peak and super off-peak time periods make the difference with the EV rate schedule. By using most of your energy during the off-peak and super off-peak times, you will see significant savings on your energy bill. Your monthly rate for your facilities charges will remain the same.
