Electric Vehicle (EV) Support
The Public Utilities Commission must consider the following to support EVs in California:
- Strategies to facilitate the development of technologies that promote grid integration, including technologies with submetering capabilities for residential EV chargers, if implementing these technologies is in the interest of ratepayers;
- Policies that support the development of technologies and rate strategies that reduce the impact of demand charges of EV drivers and fleets and to accelerate the adoption of EVs; and
- A tariff specific to heavy-duty EV fleets that encourages EV charging when there is excess grid capacity.
