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. For more information, see the Distribution System Planning Interim Report, published December 21, 2023.
