Electric Vehicles & Your Bill

If you install a home charger, the cost of charging your electric vehicle will be based on the rate you currently pay for electric service. You can also purchase service from an energy service company or enroll in our voluntary time-of-use program.

Explore the different rates available below, or try out the Electric Vehicles Calculator.


Available Rates

Standard Residential Rate

The price you pay (per kilowatt-hour) for supply and delivery is based on the season and how much electricity you use, no matter the time of day or night.  

Residential Voluntary Time-of-Use Rate (With One-Year Price Guarantee for Electric Vehicle Owners)

You’ll pay less if you use electricity during off-peak times, and you’ll pay more during the times when electricity is most in-demand during the summer months. If you can put off charging your car, doing laundry, running a pool filter, dishwasher, etc., until after midnight and before 8 a.m., this might work for you. See rates

Choose our time-of-use rate and we'll give you a one-year price guarantee as an electric vehicle owner. The guarantee is good whether you get your energy from Con Edison or an Energy Service Company.

Your guarantee will begin with the first full billing cycle after we install your time-of-use meter. During that year, you are guaranteed to not pay more than you would have paid under the standard residential rate.

To apply, send the following to EVprograms@conEd.com:

  • Your name, 15-digit Con Edison account number, and phone number.
  • A signed, written request to be billed under the voluntary time-of-use rate specifiying if you have solar panels installed at your home or are in the process of installing solar panels.
  • A copy of your vehicle registration with an address that matches the service address of your Con Edison account. If your registration doesn't match the service address, please provide a copy of your registration along with other documentation verifying that the electric vehicle will be charged at your home.

Once our representatives have reviewed your documentation, we will email you to confirm your enrollment.

Electric Vehicle-Only Time-of-Use Rate

You can have a separate meter installed just to charge your car. We suggest that you consider all your potential costs, such as hiring an electrician to install a second meter pan and electric panel, and the additional monthly customer charge, as part of your decision to separately meter your electric vehicle. For more information, please contact EVprograms@coned.com.
