TURN Testimony on Southern California Edison’s Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Proposal

TURN is an unequivocal supporter of transportation electrification (TE), as this holds promise to decrease electric rates, integrate renewables, lower system costs, and provide for cleaner air and other environmental benefits, if intelligent policies are adopted to enable this future. However, one must be careful to distinguish between the benefits of TE and claimed benefits of SCE’s proposal. In many instances, the two are entirely unrelated.
