MID Time of Use rate program for electric vehicle owners!

MID Time of Use rate program for electric vehicle owners! logo

MID'S EV-D rate allows customers with EV's to be billed for their electric usage at different prices depending on the time of day. With this time of use rate, customers are encouraged to do more energy intensive activities - such as charging their EV - during off-peak periods when prices are lower. When prices are higher during on-peak hours, customers are encouraged to refrain from energy intensive activities. By maximizing electric usage during off-peak periods, EV customers can lower their monthly electric bills.

This is an optional, pilot, Time-of-Use (TOU) Rate applicable to individual family accommodations devoted primarily to residential customers and who have a currently registered Motor Vehicle, as defined by the California Motor Vehicle Code, which is defined as "a plug-in battery electric vehicle (PBEV) or plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) recharged via a recharging outlet at the customer’s premises."

The General Manager has, at their sole discretion, the right to suspend, modify, restrict and/or close this experimental rate schedule at any time.

Up to $500 Rebate on Level 2 Electric Vehicle Chargers

Up to $500 Rebate on Level 2 Electric Vehicle Chargers logo

As more of our customers are entering into the EV market, MID has launched a new pilot program to help with the cost of installing EV chargers. The rebate application includes the program requirements (link below).

Level 2 electric vehicle supply equipment (EVSE) provides charging through a 240 V AC plug. Level 2 adds about 10 to 60 miles of range to a vehicle per hour of charging time, making it far more convenient than standard 120 V AC charging, which adds about 2 to 5 miles per hour of charging. Additionally, level 2 charging is a more energy-efficient method of charging, as most EV have on-board components that require additional electricity the entire time the EV is plugged in.

  • Level 2 chargers are four to six times faster than using a standard home outlet.
  • More efficient charging than standard outlet (120V) charging.
  • Many units come with additional controls, such as timers and wifi connectivity.
