Seniors receive an SDG&E bill credit for driving clean

For the third consecutive year, electric vehicle drivers in SDG&E’s service area may be eligible for a bill credit on their energy bill for driving clean. If you drive an all-electric or plug-in hybrid electric vehicle, you may qualify for the annual Electric Vehicle Climate Credit (EVCC). This credit is part of a statewide program administered by the California Air Resources Board (CARB) to help reduce greenhouse gas emissions in California.

“More and more people are making the switch to plug-in vehicles because they see many advantages beyond environmental benefits, including performance and fuel savings,” said Mike Schneider, SDG&E’s vice president of clean transportation and asset management. “The progress our region is making in clean transportation is a sign that we are moving in the right direction to build a clean air and clean energy future.”

In 2018, EV drivers received a $500 bill credit*. Enrollment for the 2019 Electric Vehicle Climate Credit runs through May 31, 2019. Find out if you qualify at

Drivers who enroll in SDG&E’s EV-TOU 5 plan can charge their car overnight for as little as 9¢ kW/h from midnight to 6 a.m. when they pay a basic monthly service fee of $16. Visit to learn more.

*SDG&E® makes no guarantees regarding the amount of this year’s credit. 2019 is the final year this credit will be available. To receive the credit, your vehicle must be registered in the state of California at an address within SDG&E’s service area as of May 31, 2019. Your electric vehicle must be qualified to drive on a highway. Electric commercial fleet vehicles, golf carts and scooters are not eligible.
