Drivers of plug-in hybrids and electric vehicles, or EVs, have until Friday to apply for a credit on their San Diego Gas & Electric bills.
The size of the credit varies from year to year but in 2018, about 15,000 customers in SDG&E’s service territory saw $500 credited their accounts.
Called the Electric Vehicle Climate Credit, the program is administered by the California Air Resources Board as a way to encourage consumers to buy or lease EVs in an effort to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The size of the credit changes each year because it depends on how much revenue is raised through the sale of carbon credits in the Air Resources Board’s Low Carbon Fuel Standard program and the number of drivers who apply.
