Electric vehicle charging

Electric vehicles

Electric vehicles (EVs) are increasingly common and gaining in popularity. With major vehicle manufacturers planning to go fully electric by 2035 - 2040, you may be considering an EV. 

WH has two vehicle charging options: Purchase a ZEFNET charging station, or Bring your own charger.

Bring your own charging station

If you are purchasing your own wall-mount level 2 charging station, you can choose to participate in one of the following charging options. You cannot switch between the two programs because the metering equipment required for each is different. The Energy-Saving Program meter and receiver equipment will need to be located outside the home for both options.

Option 2: Electric Vehicle Time-of-Use Program

  • Energy rate varies based on physical location of equipment and time of day.
