As more electric vehicles come onto the market, public power utilities are planning for how to incorporate customers’ charging needs into their community electricity infrastructure. From setting up public charging stations to exploring options to encourage customers to avoid charging during peak load, APPA is helping public power utilities innovate by sharing case studies, reports, and information through the Public Power Forward initiative. Join the Public Power Forward member listserv to discuss EVs with your colleagues. For a deeper dive, utility, state association, and joint action agency members can also join the Association's Electric Vehicle Interest Group.
APPA's Demonstration of Energy & Efficiency Development (DEED) program funds research, pilot projects, and education on topics such as electric vehicles. DEED members, don’t forget to explore the DEED Project Database to find additional resources.
