San Diego Gas and Electric (SDG&E) customers looking to buy certain models of Nissan and BMV electric cars are eligible for a big discount.
Nissan and BMV are offering SDG&E customers $10,000 off the purchase of a new 2017 Nissan LEAF or any new 2017 BMV i3 plug-in model.
The discount offers are funded through the automakers, not SDG&E ratepayer funds, the agency said.
Additionally, federal incentives can provide $2,500 to $7,500 for electric car purchases, depending on the car bought.
Those additional incentives can add up to another $10,000.
Plus, San Diegans can save additional money by signing up for an electric vehicle time-of-use rate. The program lets people pick the cheapest time for their car to charge.
