If you lease or own a plug-in electric vehicle (PEV) Alpena Power has options to help you charge your vehicle conveniently and cost effectively at home. By charging during off-peak hours, 9:00 p.m. to 9:00 a.m. Monday through Friday, weekends and holidays, your energy prices will be discounted 17% from our standard residential per kWh rate.
Installing an at-home PEV charger and meter
We recommend hiring a licensed electrician to install the charger and necessary submeter. To be eligible for the off-peak charging rate the energy used by the charger will have to be metered separately with a time of use meter. This way Alpena Power will know exactly how much energy was used to charge the PEV and when it was used.
How much will I save by when I switch from gas and charge off-peak?
