We Energies proposes new program for electric vehicle charging
The proposed EV pilot program is part of We Energies’ rate filing with the Public Service Commission of Wisconsin.
Milwaukee – We Energies is looking to make it easier and less expensive for electric vehicle (EV) owners to power up by offering rebates of up to $1,000 to residential customers who install EV chargers at their homes.
The proposed EV pilot program is part of We Energies’ rate filing with the Public Service Commission of Wisconsin. On top of the rebate, the program will also let EV owners take advantage of time-of-use rates for charging their vehicles at home. Time-of-use rates mean customers can charge their vehicles overnight at a lower rate, when there is less demand. The remainder of customer electric usage will still be billed at the traditional residential rate.
EVs are a small but rapidly growing transportation option. A recent report finds that the number of EVs on U.S. roads is projected to reach more than 18 million in 2030.
“This pilot program lets us study the impact electric vehicles will have on our power system,” said Tom Metcalfe – president of We Energies. “As more EVs are bought and charged, this will help us better understand the impact on power generation and distribution.”
The EV pilot program is another way We Energies is promoting environmental stewardship. From restoring natural habitats and helping endangered animals to building new solar facilities and reducing carbon emissions, We Energies is committed to a cleaner future.
