My electricity provider (Pacific Gas & Electric) has a couple of rate plans for EV owners. One option is to install dual meters so that you can put your home EV charger on a dedicated meter which allows you to not only track your car’s electricity usage, but also includes a rate plan that takes advantage of low cost middle of the night charging. The rest of your house would then be on the second meter and remains on a more conventional rate plan. I was wondering if any of you current EV owners have gone for this option, and if you think it was worth the expense of installing a whole new service panel (probably several thousands of dollars).
