The E9B rate in California is very beneficial for EV owners as the night rate for charging is the lowest at around $0.05-$0.06 / kWh. I completed an application from PG&E and now I’m waiting for a couple local electricians to give me quotes. The secondary, and sometimes more important benefit is splitting the baseline usage over two meters. This allows an EV owner to stay at Tier 1 for the EV and the house as usual. This saves money by not pushing the house into a higher tier.
