Diana Sharpe is Vice President, Large Customer Operations at Commonwealth Edison.
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: What's the goal of Commonwealth Edison's electric vehicle programs?
Diana Sharpe: Our goal is to support an equitable transition to electrification. We want to make sure we're supporting our customers' sustainability goals and Illinois' overall goal of transitioning one million cars to electric vehicles by 2030. It was part of the CEJA legislation, the Climate and Equitable Jobs Act.
We want to make sure our customers are prepared, we're doing everything possible to remove barriers for customers, and to educate them about transportation electrification. That is making sure they know the pros, understand the costs, how they can transition their cars and appliances.
