Charge At Home In Indiana
Nothing beats the ease and convenience of charging your EV at home. Wake up every day to a full charge, ready for all your adventures. And nothing beats the price. Our Off-Peak rates give you significant savings – enough to drive 4,700 free miles a year – year, after year. And, if you sign up now, you’re eligible for $500 by joining the program. I&M’s incentive helps offset the cost to set up or retrofit your current charger configuration to measure off-peak PEV charging. PEV charging from 11:00 pm to 6:00 am daily will be discounted 30% from our standard residential per kWh rate.
How do I get the $500 rebate and the off-peak rate?
First you’ll need to own or lease a plug-in EV and have a residential or small commercial account with us. Customers who already have a Level 2 PEV charger installed are eligible.
To get started, you must submit your application to I&M.
Once your application is approved, you will received detailed, step-by-step instructions requiring you and your licensed local electrician to:
- Verify all applicable local licensing, permitting, installation and inspection requirements
- Install an approved meter socket outdoors between the electrical panel and your PEV charger
- Provide evidence of an approved local electrical inspection to I&M
Once I&M has evidence of the approved local inspection, we will install the submeter, activate the discounted off-peak billing, and pay you the $500.
There is no fee to sign up. Apply now to start saving.

Frequently Asked Questions
Off-Peak rates available specifically for your EV apply from 11pm-6am every day.
No. You can charge your EV any time, same as before. However, you’ll get the benefit of the lower rate only during Off-Peak hours.
It is not possible to adopt the Off-Peak rate because the net metering equipment does not differentiate between On-Peak/Off-Peak EV charging.
You’ll need a sub-meter base and a sub-meter; the submeter is provided to you free of charge. You are responsible for hiring an electrician to install the sub-meter base. Once that is complete, we install the sub-meter.
Like the primary electric meter, it remains with the house and we maintain ownership of both. Being Off-Peak ready is a great selling point when selling your home.
Your application undergoes a review for eligibility immediately, and we’ll coordinate with you to install a submeter once your electrical installation is inspected.
