CMLP Off-Peak Rates and Rebates For Electric Vehicle Charging

Offpeak charging

Electric vehicle (EV) owners can earn bill credits by charging during off-peak hours to reduce stress on the energy grid and earn bill credits in return. To participate, simply set your vehicle up to charge during this time using its app or infotainment center.

Simulation results using the TOU Random approach revealed that electric vehicle battery charging was moved away from on-peak periods without leading to an EPS demand spike. Rates and off-peak hours vary by station.

EV Miles Program

The EV Miles program helps drivers reduce fuel costs by providing access to off-peak electricity during non-peak hours and earning credits towards future electricity bills by charging during off-peak charging sessions. Available only to CMLP customers with electric vehicle subscriptions who subscribe to TOU rate for charging, the program provides significant cost savings by charging in off-peak hours.

The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law established a $2.5 billion Discretionary Grant Program for Charging and Fueling Infrastructure as part of its mandate, to strategically deploy publicly accessible EV charging infrastructure both urban and rural locations along Alternative Fuel Corridors and along designated Alternative Fuel Corridors. For states to be eligible for funding under this grant program they were required to submit State EV Infrastructure Deployment Plans with Federal Highway Administration (FHWA).

TDEC and TVA have leveraged state, local, and private funds to develop a fast-charging network that improves transportation efficiency, decreases emissions, promotes electric vehicle adoption and enhances resilience. They leveraged federal highway funds for these corridor projects as well as allocating 15% of their Volkswagen Diesel Settlement Environmental Mitigation Trust allocation specifically towards fast charging projects.

Now available are an assortment of electric vehicle (EV) models. While their upfront costs may be higher than traditional vehicles, their operating and maintenance expenses are significantly reduced thanks to savings on fuel and maintenance expenses – no oil changes required with an EV! Furthermore, its drive systems produce forward motion with reduced energy use while recovering energy during braking for greater overall efficiency of over 90%!

Electric vehicles (EVs) have quickly become a favorite choice among commuters in Tennessee, with drivers typically spending 44% less on gasoline and motor oil compared with those driving conventional vehicles. Furthermore, EV owners can take advantage of Virginia Department of Transportation’s per-mile charge rate offering, which ties road fees directly to miles driven rather than just flat fees.

EV Miles promotes electric vehicle ownership by offering rebates to residents and businesses who install charging stations at home or business, including up to $250 residential rebate for Level 2 charging systems such as those using 240-volt wiring circuits connecting from your house electrical panel directly to a garage or parking area where a charger needs to be placed – this rebate may also be combined with off-peak charging incentives available through EV Miles; companies looking to add these charging stations can take advantage of them too, as well as multi-unit residential buildings with multiple charging stations within.

CMLP Off-Peak Rate

CMLP Off-Peak Rate is an option available to residential electric customers that offers a fixed price during eight off peak hours daily, Monday through Friday, for their electricity use. It aims to promote energy efficiency while simultaneously supporting community EV charging initiatives.

Residential electricity rates can be reduced up to 80% during off-peak periods with CMLP’s off-peak rate available to all eligible residential customers, who may participate in the program for one year at a time or opt out at any time.

Customers looking to take part must first be residential customers of CMLP with an electric vehicle capable of being charged during off-peak periods, as well as having signed and installed an off-peak meter agreement from them.

CMLP is working on another project – the conversion of existing overhead systems along Central Street and surrounding neighborhoods into underground ones. Already work has been completed on Laurel Street and Walden Terrace; with remaining conduit installed areas expected to be converted in late summer.

CMLP Board also approved issuing $2 Million in general obligation bonds to finance construction of a new substation in Forest Ridge. Construction should be complete by December and will allow CMLP to increase capacity by up to 15 Megawatts.

This project is an ambitious undertaking for the Town, and requires considerable community support to succeed. Furthermore, this initiative will make existing substations more cost-efficient and safer by decreasing their number of transformers required to serve our town.

CMLP Board also discussed two upcoming projects, including the redesign and purchase of new energy meters for its customers. Evaporative cooler replacement is done to increase reliability while energy meter purchases form part of an effort to enhance CMLP systems and increase efficiency.

CMLP Off-Peak Rebate

CMLP Off-Peak Rebate offers customers an easy way to save money when charging their electric vehicle (EV) during off-peak hours. The rebate covers installation of a 240V wiring circuit into existing home electrical panels as well as an electric vehicle charging station; applicants must own and operate an eligible EV; it’s open to residential and small commercial customers of CMLP who sign up for their EV Rate plan.

TOU Plans: TOU (Time of Use) plans can help reduce your electricity bill and make transitioning to an EV more cost-effective, but switching may require some preparation – it takes knowing exactly how much power will be consumed during peak hours and taking advantage of off-peak rates to make an optimal plan selection.

Integration into Your Home: Making use of TOU rates has never been simpler with smart home systems that automate energy usage and schedule your EV charging automatically. A smart system makes taking advantage of TOU rates even simpler by helping you avoid peak charges while earning off-peak rebates without ever lifting a finger yourself!

EV Miles: The EV Miles program offers bill credits to owners of electric vehicles who set their chargers to charge off-peak. You can learn more by visiting its website or downloading the National Grid Charge Smart app.

Solar Photovoltaic Rebate: The CMLP solar photovoltaic rebate can help you save money on electricity bills while decreasing carbon emissions. You can easily apply for it online or by contacting their solar team directly.

Weatherization Rebate: Following an energy assessment, you could qualify for a weatherization rebate that covers insulation (attic and basement) and air sealing of windows, doors, walls, pipes, and ductwork to lower fuel bills, reduce carbon footprints, and ensure more comfort both summer and winter in your home.

Residential EV Charger Incentive: The Maryland Gas & Electric Department’s Electric Vehicle Charging Incentive Rebate program assists eligible homeowners, renters, and condo associations install Level 2 EVSE charging stations at their properties as part of National Grid EV Charge Smart program. This rebate forms part of their incentive.

EV Scheduler

With our EV Scheduler, you can rest easy knowing your vehicle will be charged at times when electricity prices are lowest – helping ensure maximum battery longevity when you need it most! This is particularly crucial considering lithium-ion batteries degrade with each charging/discharging cycle.

The EV Scheduler is a smart charging solution that automatically redirects your charging away from peak times when energy consumption and renewables are scarcest. It uses your vehicle’s location and charging history to identify when to charge every day; in addition, it suspends charging during peak hours (3pm-9pm) in order to ease strain on our grid and save you money.

Our EV Scheduler is available to customers who subscribe to either of our TOU or EV rates, and if you’re curious about giving it a try, use the EV Savings CalculatorOpens in new Window to determine whether an EV plan might work for you.

Companies with large fleets of EVs will find that the EV Scheduler can help reduce overall operational costs, protect the environment, and boost employee morale. This software serves as a central hub to monitor, manage, and analyze their EV fleet; you can plan trips using its trip planning feature and optimize charging schedule; plus it gives insight into performance issues like charger malfunction.

Apart from mitigating disorderly EV charging behaviors on distribution networks, this system can also help control energy costs by incorporating the flexibility of charging of EV users into demand-response programs that offer discounts or rebates during low demand periods (like night or weekend time periods).

Most current optimal scheduling strategies for EV charging rely on multi-objective mathematical programming (MPC), requiring extensive computing resources in the distribution network’s control center. To overcome traditional centralized approaches’ limitations, this study proposes an orderly charging scheduling method in a cloud-edge collaborative environment that forecasts residential loads, charging demands and renewable outputs at edge computing nodes before formulating power supply plans based on this forecasting data.
