Electric Vehicle Programs in Development

We develop meaningful and relevant energy programs that help our customers make smart energy choices every day

We’re working to support EV ownership

Active demand management

Through a partnership with Connected Solutions, we are investigating a program that rewards you for using less energy during periods of peak demand, when others are using more. During these periods, Unitil will make slight adjustments to decrease the EV charger’s energy use. You will still be able to charge your electric vehicle, but you’ll help decrease the strain on Unitil’s electric system while lowering your carbon emissions even further. In return, you’ll earn cash rewards.

Time-of-Use rates

Eligible electric customers may be able to save money by charging up on off-peak hours using Unitil's Time-of-Use rate. Time-of-Use (TOU) rates have different electricity prices based on the time of day electricity is used. Customers can manage their bills by shifting tasks that require electricity to off-peak hours when electricity costs are the lowest.

Commercial charging host program

EV drivers are your employees, residents, patrons, guests and visitors. By installing charging stations, you’ll provide a valuable service while retaining talent and meeting your company’s sustainability goals.

EV Demand Charge Alternative Rates

Unitil offers Electric Vehicle (EV) Demand Charge Alternative Rates to medium (GD-2) and large (GD-3) commercial customers in Massachusetts. New EV charging stations tend to have low utilization until usage ramps up. The EV Demand Charge Alternative may help commercial customers save on demand charges. For more information, read the tariff or view the rate summary.
