Michigan utility to offer charging station rebates and time-of-use rates

2015 Kia Soul EV

The Michigan Public Service Commission (MPSC) has authorized electric utility Consumers Energy to launch a charging infrastructure pilot program that includes rebates and a time-of-use rate plan.

Consumers Energy’s PowerMIDrive program, a three-year, $10-million effort, includes a Nighttime Savers Rate to encourage EV drivers to charge their vehicles between 7 pm and 6 am. Residential customers who sign up for the nighttime rate will also receive a $500 rebate for each EV.

The company will also offer $5,000 rebates for chargers installed in public areas such as workplaces and multi-unit dwellings, and up to $70,000 in rebates for the installation of DC Fast Chargers.

    Finally an Off Peak discount for charging. That is good and Smart for everyone. I have tried to talk our local Utility to do that for the public Fast Charger they sponsor.
