State Public Utility Commissions (PUCs) will play a critical role in NEVI as they oversee utility investments in this new national charging network, ideally ensuring that utilities deploy infrastructure and technology that is efficient, reliable, safe, and supports the scale and timeframe required to benefit consumers. State PUCs use their regulatory power to review, approve, and deny utility investments and programs to support the new NEVI charging network. As key conveners, PUCs are also providing forums for detailed planning within their states to ensure NEVI-funded EVSEs and related customer and utility investments benefit customers and the grid.

This NEVI Brief provides:

• A concise explanation of the NEVI funding process, charger requirements, and alternative fuel corridors (AFCs).

• A description of potential PUC roles in the NEVI process in the context of other state agencies, utilities, and stakeholders.

• Key considerations for state PUCs and how Commissions enable NEVI charging infrastructure.

• A discussion of how NEVI charger buildouts could broadly influence technical requirements and standards for the EV charging industry and utilities.
