    ORIGINAL REPORTING: California Utilities Lead The Race To Plug Transport In

    How California's utilities are planning the next phase of electric vehicle adoption; IOUs in the nation's largest EV market are pushing new proposals to enable electrification beyond small consumer cars

    Herman K. Trabish, Feb. 7, 2017 (Utility Dive)

    Editor’s note: These proposals could carry transportation electrification farther toward economic viability.

    The California investor-owned utilities (IOUs) want to spend over a billion dollars to drive electric vehicle charging ahead. New plans filed with state regulators aim to put plugs on just about everything with wheels. Southern California Edison (SCE) would spend $19.45 million on six “priority review” pilots and $553.8 million on a five-year charging infrastructure buildout. San Diego Gas and Electric (SDG&E) wants $18.19 million for six priority review pilots and $225.9 million for residential charging. And Pacific Gas and Electric (PG&E) has proposed $20 million for priority reviews and $233.2 million for two five-year charger buildouts.

    In all, it comes to $1.07 billion for a wide-ranging list of programs from heavy-duty transport electrification to incentives for Uber and Lyft drivers. These proposals follow a first round of ambitious investments from California’s IOUs on charging infrastructure for light-duty passenger vehicles — small consumer EVs like the Chevy Volt. Three IOU programs totaling $197 million were approved by the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) over the last year to support Gov. Jerry Brown’s goal to have 1.5 million zero emission vehicles (ZEVs) on the state’s roads by 2025… click here for more
