Support for Plug-In Electric Vehicles (PEVs)
The Public Utilities Commission must consider the following to support PEVs in California:
- Strategies to facilitate the development of technologies that promote grid integration, including technologies with submetering capabilities for residential PEV 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 PEV drivers and fleets and to accelerate the adoption of PEVs; and
- A tariff specific to heavy-duty PEV fleets that encourages PEV charging when there is excess grid capacity.
