Determine how much to charge drivers at your site

EV Charge Network program participants have two options for pricing at their charging stations: Custom Pricing or Pass-Through Pricing. If you’ve opted for Pass-Through Pricing, find out how you can recover the full cost of the electricity charges you pay.

Recovering your costs

In Pass-Through Pricing, program participants mirror their Time-of-Use (TOU) A-6 or A-10 rate plan and pass these rates through to EV drivers. The rate plan for your chargers is listed on your billing statement. If you have multiple Service Agreement IDs on your bill, be sure to refer to the "Details of Electric Charges" for the correct Service Agreement corresponding to your EV chargers.



Note that rate plans include non-energy charges (such as the customer charge and the demand charge) in addition to energy charges. Review your plan’s information below to determine how much to add to your pass-through rate, so that you can pass non-energy charges through to drivers.

Pass-Through Pricing for A-6

This rate includes a customer charge that is approximately $20 per month. Sites with ten chargers can typically cover this non-energy charge by adding the appropriate amount in our chart to the TOU energy rates.

Pass-Through Pricing for A-10

This rate includes a customer charge of approximately $140 per month, plus a demand charge. The demand charge is based on the peak amount of electricity your chargers draw from the grid during your billing period. Program participants on A-10 who’ve already received an electric bill for their chargers can use our calculator to suggest an additional amount to add to the TOU energy rates.

Please note: The add-on rate we provide is only an estimate, based on past usage at your site. Your actual usage is likely to vary from month to month. We recommend revisiting this tool periodically to recalculate an appropriate add-on amount.

 

Calculate your add-on pricing

Electric usage: Enter the total monthly consumption (kWh) of your EV chargers from your last billing statement, shown as “Electric Usage This Period” in the Electric Charges section. Make sure the electric usage is for your EV chargers only. If you have multiple Service Agreement IDs on your bill, be sure to refer to the "Details of Electric Charges" for the correct Service Agreement corresponding to your EV chargers.

Peak demand: Enter the peak electricity demand of your EV chargers from your last billing statement, shown in the Demand Charge line in the Electric Charges section. Make sure the peak demand is for your EV chargers only. If you have multiple Service Agreement IDs on your bill, find the "Details of Electric Charges" section for the correct Service Agreement representing your chargers.
