Read the Electricity Distributors Association (EDA) most recent policy paper Charging Ahead 2.0: The Local Distribution Company Role in Electric Vehicle Charging & Electrification Development based off their first electrification paper, Charging Ahead: Electricity Distributors Association Position Paper on Electrified Transportation by highlighting the specific roles that LDCs can play in helping to build the much-needed charging infrastructure required for wide scale electric vehicle adoption in Ontario.
This paper outlines the EDA’s perspective and advocacy positions on the role that LDCs can play in electrified transportation, one of the largest components of overall beneficial electrification expected to unfold in Ontario.
The paper focuses on the LDC role in:
1. Rate basing Charging Infrastructure
- “Make-ready” vs. “Owner-Operator approach”
- Rate Basing Investments
2. Education and Outreach
3. Overnight Charging Rate
The electrification of the transportation sector is viewed by many decision-makers and stakeholders as a critical strategy to reduce greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) while at the same time providing substantial economic and environmental benefits to electricity consumers and society as a whole.
The EDA will continue to update members on how advocacy progresses around electrification and new opportunities for engagement.
