PEV Rates

PEV MeterElectricity is the new fuel for your transportation. Consumers Energy's residential rate will help you reduce and manage the cost of this fuel. If you prefer, you may continue paying for all of your home’s electricity (including your new vehicle) on your current residential rate.

Consumers Energy's - Residential Home and Plug-in Electric Vehicle Time-of-Day Rate (REV-1) combines charging your electric vehicle with all of your other household electric use (such as lighting, cooking and water heating). This rate provides a low-cost option for off-peak electric use, including charging your vehicle at night (see schedule below for specific timeframes). No additional metering is required.

Time of day rates for your electric vehicle provide you the opportunity to manage your monthly electricity costs.  This may help you save money depending on when you charge your vehicle. A time of day rate means that your kWh cost will differ depending on the time of the day electricity is used. If you can shift your electricity use to low-cost evening, early morning and/or weekend periods, you may benefit from being served using time of day rates. See the chart below for the breakdown of seasons, times and costs.
