TID Considers Reduced Rates for Electric Car Owners

A proposed, experimental rate structure could encourage some Turlockers to go green and drive an electric car.

The Turlock Irrigation District rate change would allow residential customers who own electric vehicles to pay less for electricity used during off-peak times – 9 p.m. through noon – letting them charge cars at night when electricity is cheaper.

Currently, TID residential customers are charged a flat fee for electricity regardless of when it’s used. That’s despite TID paying far less for energy during off-peak times – less than half as much, on average.

Electric car owners are hit harder by the district’s current rate structure, as the added demand of an electric car almost inevitably bumps customers into the highest tier of electrical rates.
