We live in San Francisco area; because we use quite a bit of electricity so we are in tier 4 and pay around $0.40 per KWH. If we purchase an Electric Vehicle then we will be at Tier 5. Question: Do we qualify for Tier 1 if we charge the EV off peak hour (midnight to 6AM)? If yes, what should we do to get this rate? Note: PGE just installed Smart meter in my house. Charge per kwh. Tier 1 (Baseline) .11877 Tier 2 (100-130%) .13502 Tier 3 (131-200%) .27572 Tier 4 (201-300%) .40577 Tier 5 (>300%) .47393 Thank you.
