This session will discuss how EMCs can design, facilitate, and implement successful vehicle electrification programs across the systems they serve. Topics will include: selecting the right infrastructure and programs (facilities, fleets, commercial members, residential members); make the most of existing distribution assets; what to charge – tariffs and fees, and networking, monitoring, and uptime.
