State public utility regulators play a key role in the equitable deployment of EVs, as they are responsible for reviewing the rate design and infrastructure investments proposed by investor-owned utilities (IOUs). Through transportation electrification plans (TEPs) and other filings, utilities have begun laying out comprehensive plans for how they will support the deployment of electric vehicles, including elements such as incentives for vehicle purchases and electric vehicle supply equipment (EVSE), time-varying rates, education and outreach, and targeted investments in frontline communities.

This issue brief, published as an addendum to the 2019 NARUC report Electric Vehicles: Key Trends, Issues and Considerations for State Regulators, provides an overview of the utility programs and business models that are intended to center equity and captures key considerations for state utility regulators around these models.
