Rate Options for EV Owners Charging at Home

Understand your billing options under our standard and time-of-use rates.

Time of Use Rates

There are two ways to save as an electric vehicle owner under our time of use rates.

1) Residential Time-of-Use With One-Year Price Guarantee and Reduced Monthly Customer Charge

You can switch your whole home to our time-of-use rate for one year with no risk. After you’ve been billed on time-of-use for 12 months, we’ll compare what you paid under time-of-use rate with what you would have paid under our standard residential rate. If you paid more, we’ll credit your account for the difference.

  • If you’re a full-service Con Edison customer and you switch to the time-of-use rate, you must remain on the time-of-use rate for one year from the date of the switch.
  • If you then switch back to the standard residential rate, you will be unable to re-enroll in the time-of-use rate for 18 months.
  • If you get your energy from an energy service company, you’re not bound by the one-year requirement so long as you do not become a full-service Con Edison customer. However, like those on full service, if you get your energy from an energy service company, you won’t be able to re-enroll in the time-of-use rate for 18 months if you switch back to the standard rate.

To apply, email us the following:

  • Your name, Con Edison account number, and phone number. To retrieve your account number, log in to My Account or check your bill.
  • A signed, written request to be billed under the voluntary time-of-use rate.
  • Please specify if you have solar panels installed at your home or are in the process of installing solar panels.
  • A copy of your electric vehicle registration document 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.

2) Second Meter for Electric Vehicles Only

You can install a separate residential meter solely to charge your electric vehicle, even if you live in an apartment complex. You’ll need to hire a licensed electrician to do the necessary wiring, and to install a new meter pan and panel. But if you do, you can separately meter your electric vehicle using a time-of-use rate, which can reduce off-peak charging cost.

If you have a dedicated meter for residential electric vehicle charging, you will not be eligible for the price guarantee.

How to Apply

To apply, you’ll need to:

  • Ask your electrician to submit a work request through Project Center.
  • Email us a copy of your electric vehicle registration annually.

Time-of-Use Periods and Delivery Rates for Both Residential Time-of-Use Options*

Time-of-Use Periods Peak Time-of-Use Rates
8 a.m. to Midnight 
Off-Peak Time-of-Use Rates
Midnight to 8 a.m.
June 1 to Sept 30 23.84 cents/kWh 1.68 cents/kWh
All other months 8.82 cents/kWh 1.68 cents/kWh

The monthly customer charge is $16.50 under the residential time-of-use rate.*

Electricity supply is an additional cost. Summer super-peak pricing is in effect from June through September on weekdays between 2 p.m. and 6 p.m. Super-peak charges are significantly higher than supply charges during the rest of the day. Super-peak pricing does not apply to customers who purchase their electricity supply from energy service companies.

*Electric vehicle owners on the residential time-of-use rate are eligible for a reduced monthly customer charge. Instead of $20.96, you’ll be charged $16.50 if you email us a copy of your electric vehicle registration document together with your account number annually every March. If you have an electric-vehicle-only meter and fail to submit your vehicle registration document together with your account number annually, your account may revert to a small business rate, which has a higher monthly customer charge of $28.10.
