So what is the cost difference between operating my electric car and my ICE car?
Well, here are some numbers for you:
In the month of January I logged 1960 miles on the EV at a cost of around $59 (based on rates set by BG&E).
Had I driven those same miles in my ICE vehicle, which gets around 34 miles to the gallon, and paid an average of $2.65 per gallon, it would have cost me roughly $152 in gasoline (not including oil changes and other ICE maintenance that my EV doesn’t have).
If I factor in that I generate some of my own electricity using solar panels, and that I get SRECs for generating that power, the cost for operating my EV goes down even more.
