PG&E closing enrollment to EV-A plan; now EV2-A is out

Wed May 22, 2019 11:53 pm

Thanks to a thread over at TMC (https://teslamotorsclub.com/tmc/threads ... te.153520/).

https://www.pge.com/tariffs/assets/pdf/tariffbook/ELEC_SCHEDS_EV%20(Sch).pdf says
Regardless of the level of
participation, Rate A of Schedule EV will be closed to new enrollment on the later of July 1,
2019 or the date the new electric vehicle charging rate adopted by D.18-08-013 is
available for enrollment.
Beginning on the later of July 1, 2019 or the date the new electric vehicle charging rate
becomes available for enrollment, customers taking service on Rate A or Rate B of this
rate schedule cannot exceed 800% of their annual baseline allowance, measured as the
total usage for the customer over the last 12 months divided by the total annual baseline
allowance using the approved baseline allowances for those months. Customers at
premises with total usage in excess of 800 percent of baseline over 12 months will be
moved to Schedule E-TOU-B and will be prohibited from taking service on any electric
vehicle rate schedule for 12 months. Customers must have 12 months of consecutive
usage on this Rate Schedule before being subject to the requirement of being moved from
Schedule EV to Schedule E-TOU-B as a result of exceeding the 800 percent of baseline
12-month threshold.

I don't know any more details as I don't follow and am not on EV-A now.

I will look into whether or not it makes any sense for me to switch from E-6 to EV-A myself via their compare tool and the time/date bands.

I wonder about the actual percent of residential customers who consciously receive and appropriately act upon the "signals" PGE think they are incorporating into their rate structures.
I noticed you're still working with polymers.

I've edited the title now that EV2-A is out.

You can get the tariff sheet at https://www.pge.com/tariffs/index.page. Right now, it's at https://www.pge.com/tariffs/assets/pdf/tariffbook/ELEC_SCHEDS_EV2%20(Sch).pdf.

https://www.pge.com/en_US/residential/r ... -plan.page got updated to point to the right rate sheet.

A TMC thread on this is at https://teslamotorsclub.com/tmc/threads ... rs.158153/.

Interestingly, their comparison tool now tells me EV2-A would be the cheapest for me even though I almost never charge my EVs at home. I'm currently on E-6. I will need to study the wacky differences between the rates and time bands of E-6 vs. EV2-A to see if I really want to switch. It seems like off-peak prices for E-6 have gotten worse over time.

The estimator's currently saying on E-6, my current estimated annual cost is $690 for electricity. For EV2-A w/my usage patterns, they estimate $630. The worst for me is E-TOU-B at $815/year.
