Money for Home Charging and CNG Fills Would Come from LCFS Credits
Pacific Gas & Electric has filed a proposal with the California Public Utilities Commission to provide rebates to customers who charge their electric vehicles at home or fuel natural gas vehicles at PG&E-owned compressed natural gas fueling stations.
“If the CPUC approves, PG&E could begin issuing rebates in the second half of 2016,” the utility said Wednesday.
- PG&E proposes a one-time rebate for each electric vehicle, with single customers eligible for multiple rebates if they own several EVs.
- For customers who fuel their cars at one of PG&E’s CNG stations, rebates would be provided annually based on fuel usage.
Funding for the rebates would come from credits earned under California’s Low Carbon Fuel Standard program – not from customer rates, PG&E says.
Estimated rebate amounts will be provided by PG&E to the CPUC in September.
