Residential Electric Vehicle Time-Varying Rates That Work: Attributes That Increase Enrollment

Forecasts show electric vehicle (EV) adoption is going to increase. Without a thoughtful approach to encourage off-peak residential charging, these EVs could lead to costly distribution system impacts and infrastructure upgrades. SEPA gathered empirical research in partnership with The Brattle Group and Enel X that identifies how EV-specific time-varying rates can successfully incentivize customers to charge during off-peak hours.
