Just a reminder to shift your charging times to off peak hours -- after 10 PM through noon, Monday through Friday. Charge whenever you want on the weekends. Get 2,000 free miles of driving per year by enrolling into the BYOC program!
Shifting electric vehicles to charge during these hours will have an impact on our grid. Especially if you have a Tesla, or other larger battery cars that use more energy, it’s important to reduce the peak load impact on the grid. Peak hour loads cost more, and during some seasons come from plants that are inefficient, disproportionately located in low-income neighborhoods of color, emit large amounts of carbon dioxide and harmful pollutants.
If you are not enrolled in Wellesley Municipal Light Plant’s BYOC (BRING YOUR OWN CHARGER), please do so to keep electric rates low by reducing peak energy costs. Plus, you will earn $8 per month in the form of a bill credit from the Municipal Light Plant.That is about 2,000 free miles per year.
