April 2022 Residential Messaging from SDG&E®


Celebrate Earth Month when you drive an electric vehicle (EV)! You might not realize it, but there are lots of reasons an EV could be the perfect fit for you. Whether you’re looking for the ideal road trip companion or just looking for something you can rely on day-to-day, there’s an EV that has just what you’re looking for. Here are three reasons to LOVELECTRIC and embrace the EV lifestyle.

  • EVs go wherever you want to go.

EVs are more than capable of taking you on your daily drives. Many EVs have ranges of more than 200 miles per charge. Plus, there are over 3,000 public chargers in SDG&E’s service territory. You can find them at Park & Ride locations, plus there are many  chargers already  available at schools, parks and beaches.

  • EVs are low maintenance.

EVs have significantly lower maintenance costs because they don’t need oil changes, coolant, transmission fluid, belts or costly engine parts. Estimates show EV drivers can save up to 30% on annual maintenance costs. Check out more savings at sdge.com/EV-Compare.

  • There are many low-cost options.

With federal, state and local incentives, the cost to buy or lease EVs are lower than you might expect. Make sure to check out what’s available at sdge.com/EV-Incentives including the statewide Clean Fuel Reward that offers up to $750 when you purchase or lease a new EV.

Falling in love has never been easier! For more resources and information about why it’s time to love electric vehicles, visit sdge.com/LovElectric.


The SDG&E Community Tree Rebate Program helps qualifying residential customers plant trees and other plant species that provide direct environmental, health and economic benefits throughout the region. This program is designed for customers in SDG&E’s service territory, especially where trees may be needed to help make a positive impact in their community. Qualifying SDG&E customers receive a $35 rebate for planting or potting a 1- or 5-gallon tree/plant species (up to five rebates annually). You do not need a yard to qualify, as trees or other plant species can also be planted in large containers on outdoor balconies or patio areas. Your participation in this program helps our communities by supporting local biodiversity, improving air quality and sequestering carbon. Find out if your zip code qualifies you for the program at sdge.com/Tree-Rebate.
