Electric Vehicle Offers & Information

Ohio Edison - New Time-Varying Rate Option

FirstEnergy is implementing phase one of a Grid Modernization Plan that includes installing 700,000 smart meters in parts of the Ohio Edison, Cleveland Electric Illuminating Company and Toledo Edison service areas. Customers with smart meters may be eligible for a new, voluntary Time-Varying Rate (TVR) offer that the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio has approved.

Customers enrolling in a time-varying rate have an opportunity to save money compared to the Standard Service Offer Rate, also known as the “Price to Compare.” This rate option allows customers to lower their energy costs by shifting or reducing their energy usage during peak times when electricity demand is highest.

Used Vehicle Clean Credit up to $4,000.
Beginning January 1, 2023, if you buy a qualified used electric vehicle (EV) from a licensed dealer for $25,000 or less, you may be eligible for a used clean vehicle tax credit. The credit equals 30% of the sale price up to a maximum credit of $4,000. Additional Details.
