Delmarva Power has been given approval by Delaware state officials to begin offering electric vehicles services for residential customers and public spaces throughout the First State.
The initiative is part of an effort to reduce the carbon footprint, provide cleaner transportation options and expand public charging infrastructure, including offering a new option for residential customers who wish to charge their Electric Vehicles at their homes.
Gary Stockbridge, Delmarva Power’s regional President said “This decision is a positive first step in meeting our customers’ growing interests in EVs and a great example of the new energy services and choices we can provide for Delawareans.”
The settlement was met between Delmarva Power and the Delaware Public Service Commission. In addition to at-home charging stations, Delmarva Power plans to install, own and maintain four new charging stations, helping the company identify the practices and siting for such chargers.
According to Delmarva Power officials, the program is expected to cost around 475,000 dollars or about 3.7 cents on the average customer’s bill each month.
