Utility Electric Vehicle (EV) Program Development Requirements

The Illinois Commerce Commission (ICC) must convene a workshop to collect input for the design of utility beneficial electrification programs. The workshop must evaluate barriers, incentives, rate structures, investment opportunities, and other considerations for facilitating EV adoption. In March 2022, ICC published a report on workshop findings and recommendations for utility transportation electrification investments and incentives.

By July 1, 2022, electric utilities serving more than 500,000 customers must file a beneficial electrification plan with the ICC. Utility filings must take into consideration the ICC workshop report. The ICC must review and approve proposals by March 28, 2023. For more information, see the ICC Beneficial Electrification Workshops website.
