On February 21, 2019, the Commission issued a
Notice of Investigation (NOI) that listed eight EV-related policy and regulatory considerations to serve as initial direction for the ensuing discussion. Subsequently, a series of questions expanding upon those eight topics was developed and was provided to the public and interested parties for comment.
The Commission received 42 submitted comments on the questions, and issued a
memorandum summarizing the comments
on September 9, 2019. Commenters indicated that growing use of electric vehicles has broad implications for electricity use in Wisconsin, and presents new and unique considerations for the Commission as it defines its regulatory role.
The Commission has issued a request for additional comments so that the public and interested parties can provide further input on the appropriate next steps in this investigation. Responses to this request for comments are due by Monday, September 30, 2019.
Future steps in the investigation will be communicated through posts on the Commission’s ERF system and updates to this webpage.
