In a compliance filing regarding a Transportation
Electrification Implementation Plan in the District of Columbia, Pepco said that it would develop educational materials for customers with electric vehicles on whether it would be "advantageous" for them to move to a "Whole House" time of use rate for SOS.
The PSC previously approved Pepco's proposal to offer a Residential Whole House Time-Of-Use Rate for electric vehicles (see story here). The service supplied under this
rate is for both electric requirements for residential purposes as well as Plug-in Vehicle
battery charging purposes
Furthermore, the PSC authorized Pepco to offer EV customers a green energy "adder" under which EV customers could choose 100% renewable energy while remaining on an SOS for supply (Plug-In Vehicle-Green rider)
Regarding the Whole House TOU Rate, Pepco said, "Pepco’s EV website will contain a section dedicated to the new TOU rate and
optional 'Plug-In Vehicle-Green' rider."
"Educational material will be featured to
assist customers in determining whether it would be advantageous for them to move
to the Whole House TOU rate as well as an application. Interested customers will be
directed to complete and submit the application, which will be reviewed by Pepco.
Customers who have been approved by Pepco will be notified and moved to the new
rate in Pepco’s billing system," Pepco said
The "Whole House" time of use rate, or Schedule "R-PIV", is available to customers who own or lease a plug-in vehicle with an electric range of greater than
Under a Pepco tariff filing, the R-PIV rate would include the following rates for the Generation Service Charge under SOS
A transmission rate and the Procurement Cost Adjustment would also apply
Pepco also filed a tariff for its Plug-In Vehicle – Green Rider (Rider PIV-Green), which would be open to customers served under Schedule R-PIV and would provide customers with 100% renewable energy on an opt-in basis
Under a filed tariff, the current applicable Rider PIV-Green rate is equal to $0.04717 per kilowatt-hour.
