Regarding private charging stations installed at homes or private facilities licensed by the Commission, monthly tariffs are determined for charging electric vehicles, and no additional fees are added to the tariff since these are considered private charging stations where the owner bears the full cost of the station.

The Commission is responsible for determining the appropriate tariff for electric vehicle charging and setting a ceiling for the distributor's fee. An optional time-based tariff was implemented by the Commission starting May 28, 2023, for activities including electric vehicle charging. This tariff included reduced rates for energy consumption during off-peak hours (from 6 a.m. to 2 p.m.), amounting to 90 fils per kilowatt-hour per month, instead of 120 fils.

The possibility of further reducing the tariff for off-peak hours and including other sectors will be considered based on the results of the study.
