Electric Vehicles 

Electric vehicle (EV) adoption is increasing around the country, resulting in a new kind of electricity load from EV charging. Commissions are grappling with related challenges, including how to shift this new load to off-peak hours and whether and how utilities may be involved in offering EV charging to drivers. NARUC, with support from the U.S. Department of Energy, is working to explore these emerging topics with its members and experts. 

NARUC CPI hosts an Electric Vehicles State Working Group, which is open to all NARUC members and holds monthly meetings on EV regulatory topics. For more information, or to join the working group, please contact Robert Bennett or Danielle Sass Byrnett.
