PPU Developing Policy On Rates For EV Charging
(Harrisburg, PA) -- The Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission is developing policy rates for charging electric vehicles. The regulatory agency kicked off a process earlier this week that will end eventually in a statement on setting rates. Suggestions for the policy include setting prices so that people will charge their cars' electric batteries during non-peak hours. Agency officials say they hope to stay ahead of an expected surge in electric-vehicle use, which will have ramifications for the power grid.
