On May 7, 2021, Duke Energy Carolinas filed for the approval of three dynamic rate designs in Docket No. E-7, Sub 1253. These rate designs included a review of the piloted dynamic rate designs in Docket No. E-7 Sub 1146 and the TOU periods for Residential and Small General Service customers. Although not part of the Companies’ Phase I or Phase II Pilot Programs, the resulting rate designs were explicitly created with EV charging in mind and have the potential to offer the lowest total cost of charging EVs thus far available in DEC’s territory given beneficial load shapes. The three rates are: Residential Service: Time of Use with Critical Peak Pricing Schedules “RSTC” (for standard customers) and “RETC” (for all-electric customers) and Small General Service: Time of Use with Critical Peak Pricing Schedule “SGSTC”.
