Plug-In Electric Vehicle
If you drive an electric vehicle, you already know that fueling your car with electricity is much cheaper than gasoline or diesel. But for even greater savings, try Georgia Power’s Plug-in Electric Vehicle rate. This rate offers lower prices from 11 p.m. – 7 a.m. to encourage nighttime EV charging.
How the rate works
The Super off-peak time period is from 11 p.m. to 7 a.m., every day. If you charge your car during these nighttime hours, Georgia Power will pass our lowest prices to you.
The Off-peak time period consists of all hours not considered on-peak or super off-peak and represents the majority of hours in the year. It is priced higher than the Super Off-peak time period, but much lower than the On-peak time period.
The On-peak time period—the time when it costs most to produce electricity—is weekdays, June through September, from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m., non-holidays. The PEV prices are higher during the peak period, which represents about 5 percent of the hours in a year.
