Please see the residential rebate terms & conditions for a complete list of participation requirements. Customers must fulfill all three requirements before applying. See below for details.

Follow the four steps mapped out below to cash in

1. Buy or Lease an EV

Purchase or lease a new or used plug-in electric vehicle. Haven’t yet picked out an EV? Visit our virtual EV Showroom to find the EV for you.

2. Enroll in a Time of Day Rate

Before having your charger installed, decide which of the three qualifying electric rates are best for you.
