Utility Electric Vehicle (EV) Promotion Measures

The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission requires each state to consider measures to promote greater transportation electrification, by amending rates to:

  • Promote affordable and equitable EV charging;
  • Improve customer experience with EV charging;
  • Accelerate third party investment in electric vehicle supply equipment (EVSE); and,
  • Recover marginal costs of electricity delivery to EVSE.

Each state regulatory authority and each nonregulated utility must commence consideration or set a hearing date for consideration no later than November 15, 2022, and must complete consideration and make a determination no later than November 15, 2024. States with existing EV rate standards are exempt.
