Charge your electric vehicle for less

You’re already saving on gas—why not save on energy too? Our Drive On Electric Vehicle Rate is available for Minnesota customers and lets you charge your electric vehicle (EV) for less than half our standard rate.

EV charging station program requirements and guidelines

What you’ll need to participate

  • A Level 2 charging station. This requires a dedicated 240V circuit and Level 2 EV supply equipment. Expect to pay around $1,000 for wiring required equipment. Costs will vary depending on the structure of your home and service location.
  • A disconnect and relay. The disconnect and relay must tie into the supplied energy load. The required relay will receive its input from the relay we provide that operates based on the rate's energy delivery schedule, which limits energy supply to the hours of 10 p.m. to 6 a.m.
  • Proof of vehicle registration. Your EV must be registered in the State of Minnesota.
