Plug-In Electric Vehicle (PEV) Regulatory Study

Archived: 05/01/2015

The Rhode Island Office of Energy Resources prepared a regulatory study to identify issues affecting PEVs in an effort to increase vehicle adoption and maintain and enhance electric system reliability. The study includes recommendations to address transmission and distribution infrastructure impacts, utility reporting requirements, rate design to encourage off-peak charging, vehicle-to-grid opportunities, PEV consumer education, third-party sales of electricity from charging infrastructure, and policy coordination with other New England states. For more information, see the Rhode Island Office of Energy Resources House Resolution Report.
