# Electric Vehicle (EV) Grid Integration Requirements

By December 31, 2020, the California Public Utilities Commission (PUC) must establish strategies and metrics to maximize the use of EV grid integration for a ten-year plan(PDF). The PUC must also consider how to limit cost increases for all ratepayers. EV grid integration refers to any action that optimizes when or how an EV is charged. Electrical corporations and community choice aggregators serving more than 700 gigawatt-hours of annual electrical demand must provide the PUC with information relating to EV integration strategies. Additional terms and conditions apply.
