Currently, public utilities may provide charging ports or fueling
stations for motor vehicles as unregulated services. The bill authorizes
public utilities to provide these services as regulated or unregulated
services and allows cost recovery.
The bill allows a public utility to apply to the public utilities
commission (commission) to build facilities to support electric vehicles.
Standards are set for approval. When a facility is built, the rates and
charges for the services:
  • May allow a return on any investment made by a public
utility at the utility's weighted average cost of capital at the
utility's most recent rate of return on equity approved by the
commission; and
  • Must be recovered from all customers of a public utility in
a manner that is similar to the recovery of distribution
system investments.
