The proposed programs include a DCFC and Level 2 make-ready program for public, workplace, and multi-unit dwelling chargers; a DCFC and Level 2 fleet and transit charging pilot where the utility will own and maintain make-ready infrastructure and the customer may own the EVSE or, for a monthly per-port fee, have the Company own and maintain the EVSE; and a Level 2 home charging pilot where the Company will own and maintain the EVSE for a monthly per-port fee. The program also includes a “Customer Support” portfolio that includes education and outreach, fleet advisory services, and a registration incentive program that offers customers who own or lease an EV with a $50 one-time registration incentive as a way to engage with and identify EV-driving customers in Duquesne Light’s territory. The proposed program includes prioritization of low-income and EJ communities throughout its service territory, including additional financial incentives and percentage targets for deployment in these communities.
