Staff of the Public Utility Commission of Texas proposed that the Commission issue the following questions for stakeholder comment in Project No. 49125, Review of Issues Relating to Electric Vehicles
1. As a matter of policy, which entity or entities should be permitted to own or operate an electric vehicle charging station in the Texas competitive electric market? Is a different ownership structure appropriate for service areas not open to retail competition?
2. Is the operation of an electric vehicle charging station a retail sale of electricity?
3. As a matter of policy, how should the cost of the distribution system infrastructure associated with an electric vehicle charging station be recovered in the Texas competitive electric market?
4. Is the answer to Question 3 different for an electric vehicle charging station located in a remote area, primarily for use by long-distance rather than local motorists?
