Public Utility Electric Vehicle (EV) Charging Station Policy Design Requirements

Public electric utilities must develop and implement competitively neutral electricity policies and tariffs to encourage competitive private sector investment in the deployment of public EV charging stations. Entities that are not electric utilities may enter into an agreement with a utility to own or operate EV charging stations.

The Public Utility Commission of Texas may not authorize electric utilities to recover costs for the installation, equipment, operation, and maintenance of EV charging stations.
