Heads up if you have an EV-A rate schedule! Take note that PG&E is changing the time of use schedules for EVs. Homeowners that started on the EV-A rate more than five years ago will be automatically transitioned to the new rate in November and others will be grandfathered in. You may want to change your car charging times based on PG&E’s notification of the change. These new rates are not solar friendly because the hours of highest homeowner production and exportation back to the grid are no longer in the PG&E Peak rate, so homeowner return is less. All the more reason to be pushing this energy into your own battery storage system for use later when those Peak rates kick in. If you are not sure what your rate is, look under “Details of PG&E Electric Delivery Charges” on your bill.
