The growing popularity of electric vehicles (EVs) will eventually bring major changes in electricity consumption. But EVs could be a key to creating a more efficient electricity system and lower rates for consumers—if state regulators, public utilities and consumer advocates work together to develop the right policies, according to a first-ever report released by the Citizens Utility Board (CUB).
“The ABCs of EVs: A Guide for Policy Makers and Consumer Advocates” is available here.
“This guide is the first of its kind in the country,” CUB Executive Director David Kolata said. “CUB as well as policy makers don’t usually concern themselves with end-use electricity. But we argue that the right public policy can use EVs to create a more efficient and affordable power grid.”
