After a year and 15,000 miles of driving an electric Nissan Leaf, we finally sat down and ran the numbers for how much we're paying for electricity. The bottom line, if you're a +Pacific Gas and Electric Company customer and have an EV rate and pay attention to the times of day you use power, is a lot. I figure I saved about $133 over the roughly 1,200 miles I drove in November. It costs me about 5 cents a mile to drive the Leaf, for the combination of home and public charging that I do.
