Carbon netural generation creates more LCFS credits. Carbon neutrality can be acheived with clean on-site generation or Renewable Energy Credits (RECs).
Based on your selections, using electricity instead of fossil fuel saves $0 per year.
Annual Fuel Costs
Switching to electricity will also allow you to generate Low Carbon Fuel Standard (LCFS) credits, which could generate $0 per year.

To maximize BEV rate inputs, we have set your rate to Business Low Use EV, with a subscription level of 0 blocks. Check out the Business EV Rate Calculator to explore your options.
The total monthly cost would be $0, which includes the cost to recharge to full and the subscription charges.
BEV Cost Components
Every mile driven depletes the battery of electric vehicles. Over the course of a week, the vehicle batteries will follow the schedule below:
Weekly Battery Schedule
The site's electricity load will be the aggregate of all vehicles and their charging patterns, as shown for each weekday:
Site Load Profile (kWh)
Electricity rates are designed to encourage charging at certain hours. PG&E recently created the Business EV Rate with fleets in mind. To minimize costs, configure the vehicles to charge during the cheapest hours.
BEV Hourly Energy Charges
The selected vehicles and their corresponding details is shown below.

|CO2 Emissions Reduced||0 lbs CO2||"Total Emissions from Fossil Fuels" - "CO2 Emissions for Equivalent EVs"|
|CO2 to GHG conversion||1.00364||Conversion based on global warming potential of the primary greenhouse gases|
|GHG Emissions Reduced||0 lbs GHG||CO2 Emissions Reduced converted to GHG|
|GHG Emissions Reduced (Simplified)||0 tons GHG||A US ton is equivalent to 2,000 lbs|
A tree absorbs 48 pounds of CO2 per year, which makes this configuration equivalent to planting 0 trees annually.
