Public Utility Definition

An entity that is not a public utility, public service corporation, or public service company that provides retail PEV charging services is not defined as a public utility and may sell electricity if the electricity is used solely for transportation purchases and the entity procured the electricity from an authorized public utility. The Virginia State Corporation Commission may not set the rates, charges, or fees for retail PEV charging services provided by non-utilities. (Reference Senate Bill 908, 2018, and Virginia Code 56-1.2:1 and 56-232.2:1)
