Program Details:

While standard delivery service rates always apply, there are different price periods or times of the day that influence your monthly bill while on this rate program:

  • First-year Bill Credit: We understand that it takes time to adjust. To offset potentially higher charges for usage during the NPCP, we offer a monthly bill credit for your first 12 consecutive months enrolled on the EV Rate Program. This will give you time to see how your usage impacts your bill and to make adjustments for maximum savings

Additional Program Information:
