Nice try Edison. “Here’s $1,500 to install charger! Just change your rate plan to the most outrageous thing ever so we can get out money back and then some.”

Remind me again why utilities are given over to for profit companies? Because I don’t see the benefit of it.

Right now I’m in a tiered plan, meaning I lay a flat rate as long as I stay within a certain amount of kwh. But if I use more my flat rate goes up. I did the math, and even if I charged both my cars at home exclusively, the Time of Use plan is bullshit and my regular energy bill would be insane. I’d go from 17 cents a kwh in the afternoon to 30 or something. And on TOU I’d only ever be maybe saving 3 cents a kwh, but that’s only after 2300 and before 0600.
