The Public Service Commission of Maryland is holding Public
Conference 43 (“PC 43”) Thursday July 14, 2016 to explore the regulatory, technical, and financial barriers to the deployment of electric vehicles in the State. It would benefit us all as EV drivers to let the Commission know of our opinions and wisdom we have gathered over the last few years.
→ They really do look forward to hearing from real EV drivers! ←
The conference will be open to the public, and a sign-up sheet will be available
The official notice is here: EV-Public-Conference-Notice.pdf
The Conference will have panels on three topics:
1) Utility Investment in Electric Vehicle Charging Infrastructure
Should utilities deploy EV charging infrastructure directly? And, if so, how should the costs be recovered?
2) The Grid-Related Costs Associated with Vehicle Fleet Electrification
Can EV time-of-use charging shift loads in lieu of hardware upgrades to the grid driven by EV’s?
3) Energy Justice Spotlight: Access to Electric Vehicle Infrastructure and Charging
Incentives in Limited-Income and Other Under-Served Communities
EV’s cost around 3 cents/mi vs. 12 cents/mi in a typical gas car. How do we spread the benefits of EV’s to the hard-working families of Maryland while ensuring infrastructure costs are distributed equitably?
