Charge At Home In Michigan

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 7,800 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 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 apply from 8pm-6am, Monday-Friday. They apply all 24-hours on Saturdays, Sundays and holidays.

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 submeter base and a submeter; the submeter is provided to you free of charge. You are responsible for hiring an electrician to install the submeter base. Once that is complete, we install the submeter.

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.
