“How does Electric Vehicle Charging vary between regions?”

 

When we think of electric vehicle charging, we often think that it should be uniformly distributed within a utility’s area. However, nothing can be further from reality.

Within their region of coverage, cities such as Fresno have only a 2.4 hybrid vehicle penetration rate for new cars while in Berkeley that number climbs to 18 percent. As a result, when making choices about the future of our grid, we must take into account regional differences in electric vehicle charging load.
