In addition to the credits and rebates you may use to purchase an electric vehicle (EV), you can save on your monthly electric bill when you own an EV by opting-in to National Grid’s Voluntary Time of Use (VTOU) program. You will get a preferential electricity rate at non-peak times, allowing you to charge your EV (and do other energy intensive activities) off-peak to save on your rate.
This program is only available to residential National Grid customers in the Upstate NY region.
Approximately $175/year (based on driving ~12,000 miles/year in your EV and primarily charging at home).
Claimed as savings on your monthly National Grid bill.
