Peninsula Clean Energy offers electric vehicle rates that mirror PG&E’s rates, at a 5% lower cost. EV rates are time-of-use plans, which means that the rate you pay is based on the time of day you use the electricity. Costs are lowest from 11 p.m. to 7 a.m. when demand is lowest, making this the best time to charge your vehicle. Electricity is more expensive during Peak (2-9 p.m.) and Partial-Peak (7 a.m.-2 p.m. and 9-11 p.m.) periods. For more information on EV rates or to change your rate visit PG&E’s EV rates page (changing your rate with PG&E will automatically update your PCE rate).
