Q: How much will my utility company bill me to charge at home?
Electric utility rates vary across the country. Depending on the location and the utility company, peak charges may apply while charging an electric vehicle at home. Many utility companies have developed programs for EV drivers to encourage off-peak charging and other incentives that help better and more safely manage the demand for energy by electric vehicles. To learn more about what is available in your area, contact your electric utility provider. The U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) provides additional information on the cost of electricity nationwide.
