Note: If you live in a multi-family residence, you may have to work with your building management, owner, or Homeowners’ Association (HOA) to install charging stations. BWP offers commercial rebates for multi-family residences to assist with installing charging stations.
In some cases, individual charging stations cannot be connected to your home meter. A commercial electric infrastructure upgrade may also be needed for your building. In these cases, your building management or HOA may need to manage the charging station installation.
Time-of-Use For EV Owners
BWP promotes and incentivizes Level 2 charging at the optimal time for the grid.
When you charge your EV between 11 PM and 8 AM (off-peak), you help maintain low electricity rates and contribute to cleaner air.
What You Need to Know
- As you add EV charging to your household, your electricity usage will increase and your electricity bill may follow. However, your overall energy costs (electricity and gasoline) will likely decrease as you avoid trips to the gas station. Most EV drivers who charge at home will see immediate savings, especially when the cost of gasoline is high.
- A time-of-use (TOU) rate provides the lowest energy cost available if you charge your vehicle after 11 PM. With a Level 2 charging station, your EV will be fully charged by the time you need it in the morning.
- Your household energy costs may be higher between 8 AM and 11 PM, especially if you charge your EV during these hours.
Time of Use (TOU) Rate for Electric Vehicle (EV) Owners
With TOU, your usage is billed at a rate that varies based on the time of day and the season. This rate promotes shifting usage when renewables (sun, wind) are plentiful or when the overall demand for energy is lower.
