Who Should Pay For Electric Vehicle Chargers? Who Should Profit?

Electric vehicles are becoming a viable option. One issue holding back broader acceptance is charging. States, utilities and utility regulators are trying to address the need to provide charging stations. Such innovations include:

  • California is moving toward allowing utilities to invest in the transmission/distribution and own the charging stations
  • Massachusetts is allowing utilities to invest in the infrastructure but leave the charging stations to others
  • Texas allows ONLY utilities to own and operate charging stations
  • Missouri is considering a request to allow utilities to build and own charging stations
  • Kentucky is allowing utilities to build and own charging stations BUT only charges customers who use them

Utilities are monopolies. This allows them to charge all their customers for a charging station (that few will ever use), will not allow competition and will most likely stifle the electric vehicle industry. Allowing utilities to build out the infrastructure to which an entity can provide the charging station seems likely to win the day.

How the House Tax Bill Would Impact Wind, Solar, Electric Vehicles and Utilities

Will Congress' attempt at tax reform spell danger for clean energy?

Long term planning is what all businesses and countries seek right?

The U.S. passed laws to encourage the investment in renewable energy technology and innovation. Since then, companies, states and municipalities have invested $BILLIONs to achieve commercially available energy products, sustainable energy and reduced pollution/greenhouse gases. Renewable energy has been a top job producer.

The House Republicans and Senate have unveiled tax reform bills that would undermine this planning and progress.  Proposed reforms would include:

  1. Curtail wind construction
  2. Stop long term investment in solar development
  3. Stop investment in electric vehicles

These 3 items represent the majority of jobs created in the electric energy industry over the last 8 years.

One addition was incentive for small wind turbines, fuel cells and geothermal. This is a good plan as none of these technologies are currently commercially viable. That will take a long-term plan. While the Republican tax reform gets finalized, look at what is done to the engines of job growth in the energy industry and for those that carry out long term planning.

Illinois rated second in the country in grid modernization survey

Illinois is being recognized as one of the top states that has invested or modernized its electric grid (transmission and distribution).

The Commerce Commission and the state Legislators have authorized very large expenditures, in some cases without showing any benefit.

The real question will be HOW this investment will provide returns in reliability, lower costs and improved services to the people of Illinois.

ComEd community solar tariff approved by Illinois regulator

The ICC approved ComEd’s solar tariff application. A solar customer can subscribe to a minimum and a maximum of the output of a single community solar installation. Various concerns were discussed about the pricing and exclusion of transmission charges. However, the ICC sided with ComEd. There is a possibility for adjustments but it is uncertain how intervenors will move forward. The tariff is another step in furthering the efforts of the Future Energy Jobs Act.

Electric cars will wipe out oil demand equal to Iran’s output by 2025, Barclays says

A Tesla Model S vehicle being charged.

Due to the growing demand for electric vehicles (sales rose 40% last year), oil consumption could drastically decrease over the next 20 years. Various markets have proposed banning or curbing vehicles that burn fossil fuels and more are considering the same. Barclays analysts project that by 2025, 3.5 million barrels a day of oil demand could be wiped out. To compare, Iran is the 3rd largest OPEC producer and pumps a total 3.8 million barrels a day. The projections only increase as time goes on. However, there are still hesitations to electric vehicles especially with consistently low gasoline prices encouraging larger vehicle purchases.
