Chairperson Rebecca Cameron Valcq announced today that the Public Service Commission of Wisconsin (PSC) is moving forward with its investigation into electric vehicles. The PSC recently issued a request for comments to all interested parties, including Wisconsin municipal and investor-owned utilities. Members of the public are also welcome to submit comments to the PSC.
“The State of Wisconsin needs to be ready to meet consumer and industry demands as it relates to the increased use of electric vehicles and related infrastructure needs,” said Chairperson Valcq. “It is critical that the PSC hears from a broad range of stakeholders surrounding electric vehicle use and its growth in the marketplace.”
Wisconsin electric utilities, interested parties, and members of the public are welcome to participate in the comment process with a deadline to submit responses by Monday, May 20, 2019.
The PSC intends for the investigation to be a collaborative and inclusive process that provides ample opportunities for participation. At the conclusion of the response period, the PSC will review the comments received and draft a report analyzing the comments. The PSC is also considering in-person workshops and subsequent requests for comment to further facilitate discussions of electric vehicle policy and regulation in Wisconsin.
