P1: Utility Provides Services to Plug-in Electric Vehicle (PEV) Customer

Consumers are turning to emerging transportation options that are more fuel-efficient and environmentally favorable growing the market for all-electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles. These plug-In electric vehicles (PEV) require electric utilities that are capable of supporting the resulting emerging loads. The most reasonable option for utilities is to provide electricity for charging these vehicles at off-peak times when energy costs are low and generation and power delivery assets are underutilized. PEV manufacturers are eager to work with utilities to develop the customer rates/programs that provide greater incentives for consumers to purchase their product. In order to develop utility customer rates and programs specifically marketed to PEV owners, the utility must provide special services to their customers. These services include the ability to:
• Enroll, register and setup (one-time) initial communications between a PEV and the utility
• Repeatedly re-establish communications for each PEV charging session (repeat communications/re-binding)
• Provide PEV charging and other status data to customer information channels (e.g. Web, display devices)
• Accurately bill PEV customers according to their selected rates/programs
