By August 11, 2023, public electric utilities must submit EV TOU rate proposals to offer EV TOU rates to the Massachusetts Department of Public Utilities (DPU). When evaluating the TOU rate proposals, DPU must consider the effects on energy conservation, optimal and efficient use of facilities and resources, benefits to transmission and distribution systems, equitable rates for electric consumers, and greenhouse gas emissions reductions. DPU must issue a minimum of one order related to the TOU rate proposals by October 21, 2025.
