Utility Electric Vehicle (EV) Charging Station Pilot Program Authorization
Electric utilities may request approval from the Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission to implement a pilot program to evaluate the feasibility and design of large-scale EV charging station deployment to support public use electric vehicle (EV) adoption. Public use EVs include electric school buses, electric transit buses, and EVs used to deliver goods and services to the public. Eligible pilot program proposals include those that:
- Install, own, or operate EV charging stations or make-ready EV charging stations for public use EVs; and,
- Provide incentives or rebates to customers to encourage the purchase of EVs and installation of EV charging stations.
Utilities must also include plans to install EV charging stations in underserved and diverse communities.
