Electrical Distribution Emissions Reductions

The Maryland Public Service Commission (PSC) must submit a report on the status of the electric distribution system, including electric vehicles (EVs). The report must evaluate progress towards, among other things, the following goals:

  • Reduce greenhouse gas emissions from electric distribution, including EVs;
  • Prioritize vulnerable and underserved communities in the development of distributed energy resources and EV charging infrastructure; and,
  • Increase the use of distributed energy resources, including EVs.

The PSC must publish the report on an annual basis, beginning December 1, 2024.
