New Hampshire Electric Co-op offers electric vehicle discount
New Hampshire Electric Co-op says electric vehicle ownership is on the rise
PLYMOUTH, N.H. (AP) — A New Hampshire utility is offering discounted rates to members who charge their electric vehicles during off-peak hours.
The utility says the goal of the off-peak charging program is to influence members to charge during times when regional electric demand is low and to not strain the New England transmission grid to meet the added demand for power.
Off-peak hours are 9 p.m. to 7 a.m. Monday to Friday, including all hours on weekends and holidays. Rates will be adjusted in May and November to reflect seasonal changes in the price of wholesale power.
