The Public Utilities Fortnightly team asked the same five broad questions of eighteen experts from twelve utilities. We found it so interesting to compare these dozen discussions, the commonalities, and the differences too. Read on to see what's up with EVs at Arizona Public Service, Avangrid, CMS Energy, Commonwealth Edison, Con Edison, Duquesne Light, Idaho Power, National Grid, NiSource, Portland General Electric, Puget Sound Energy, and Southern Company.
And we wish to express PUF's gratitude to Bidgely, the energy intelligence and EV solutions company, that sponsored this special feature, and made it possible for us to bring it to you.
PUF's Steve Mitnick: What are the goals of Avangrid's electric vehicle programs, both residential and commercial fleet?
Scott Bochenek: We plan our EV activity in four different groupings with each having its own goal. The first helps to increase additional charging infrastructure with a goal to support fifteen thousand new chargers by 2030.
