I filled out the survey today. I have solar and have stayed with the standard DR rates. This makes more sense to me as many days I drive more than 70 miles and need to charge during the day between trips.

It's one of the better surveys I've taken. It asks some smart questions, which I'm glad to be asked. Unlike many surveys it offers a "prefer not to answer" choice for any question which might seem too personal.

Anyone else notice that EPEV rates went down on January 1st? All rates appear to have gone down about $0.01/kWh.

Never seen that happen before. :) Have to go update the rates on my Blink now.

Good observation! Actually, all rates seem to have gone down a bit. Adjustments are done 2-3 times per year, and January 1 is a traditional time to do a true-up. If you want to read more about it, here is the filing that outlines the details...

If you are only interested in the changes to the EPEV rates, I extracted those 3 pages from the full PDF and put the file up on one of my websites for anyone to view and save:
http://members.rennlist.org/tweedt/EPEVrates.pdf

This file has only the charts for the SCHEDULE EPEV-X, Y, and Z groups of the EV Project, so you don't have to scroll through all the other rate schedules, etc.

When the EV Project is concluded will the three SDG&E experimental rates continue for those that have a separate meter installed? If not, will the second meter have to use the existing EV-TOU rates or will some other rate be offered?

The experimental rates expire. What will actually happen then is anybody's guess. I doubt SDGE knows for sure.

The official word at this time is that the experimental rates will be retired when the project is concluded, and all cutomers will be asked to choose from one of the EV rates that exist at that time. If that time were now, the choices would be EV-TOU (two meters) or EV-TOU2 (whole house).

I don't know if any new EV rates will be introduced between now and then...But at least the two rates mentioned above should be available...

Thanks for the info Randy. If one chooses EV-TOU2 (if it is an option at the time), there would be no need for the second meter anymore. Would the second meter be physically removed in that case or would it just be deactivated by SDG&E resulting in only one electric bill for the entire house? I don't think any rewiring for the charger is necessary if one opts for EV-TOU2 with a single meter but please correct me if I am wrong about that.

Where can I find what the EV- TOU rates are currently?
