Electric Transportation Impact Studies

The Joint Committee on the Electrification of Transportation (Committee) must study the challenges and opportunities associated with transportation electrification and make recommendations to the General Assembly. The Committee must investigate the following areas:

  • The environmental, economic, and customer challenges associated with electric vehicles (EVs);
  • The potential value of advancing the development and deployment of EVs and associated infrastructure; and,
  • The impacts of EVs on current infrastructure, customers, utilities, and electricity grid.

The South Carolina Department of Revenue must provide an annual report to the Committee on the prior fiscal year’s revenue collection for the repair, maintenance, or improvements to the South Carolina transportation system.
