ChargeWise For Your EV
Time of Use Program
An electric vehicle charger installed on Dakota Electric’s time-of-use rate will always receive electricity, so you can charge your vehicle whenever needed. A special meter is installed that allows the rate to fluctuate based on the time of day you charge your EV.
Storage Program Dakota Electric’s storage rate offers members the lowest-cost off-peak electricity for charging an electric vehicle, but the hours available are restricted to 11 p.m. – 7 a.m. Electricity for charging your EV is available only during off-peak hours. Power will not be supplied outside of the off-peak hours and the charger must be hard wired into your circuit panel.
Power your EV with 100% wind energy, for the life of the vehicle, at no extra cost by signing up for Revolt. Submit a copy of your dealership invoice or vehicle title with your Revolt application to Dakota Electric, and we will send you a confirmation packet. Plug-In Electric Vehicles (PEV) and Plug-In Hybrid Electric Vehicles (PHEV) are eligible.
While the electricity delivered to your home includes increasing amounts of renewable energy, our Wellspring Renewable Energy® program gives members the option to do more for the environment.
Wellspring Renewable Energy® Program Renewable energy is purchased in 100 kWh blocks. For each 100 kWh block purchased, there is an additional charge on your electric bill of $0.20 for wind energy or $2 for solar energy. Members have the option to purchase the same amount of 100 kWh blocks each month, or purchase blocks based on the amount of energy they use.
Dakota Electric sends out Circuits monthly newsletter to our members each month. Inside, members can find valuable money- and energy-saving tips, special event details, news about Dakota Electric and electric utility industry information that may impact electric bills.
