USA: TID approves discount for electric car owners

Owners of plug-in electric cars within the Turlock Irrigation District will be able to get cheaper power for charging them during certain hours.

The district board voted 5-0 Tuesday morning to let these customers request “time-of-use” billing, which rewards energy use outside the peak demand period of noon to 9 p.m. on weekdays. They are expected to save about 5 percent on their overall monthly bills by not charging when wholesale power prices tend to be higher.

The rate will be in effect for three years so the district can see how it affects consumption patterns.
