PSE is rolling out a new electric vehicle program for customers in 2019 – PSE Up & Go Electric. The pilot program will primarily focus on market education and increasing access to charging infrastructure. The comprehensive Education & Outreach program is already underway; the program raises awareness and assists customers with electric car and charging decision-making. PSE’s resources include cost calculators, charger comparisons and facts about owning and maintaining an electric car. Customers can also sign up for a monthly newsletter to stay in-the-know on the latest EV news and learn about local ride and drive events.
PSE’s charging program will improve customer confidence and develop best practices around charging options at home, public and in the workplace. Over the coming year, PSE will deploy 500 residential chargers, up to 150 workplace chargers, up to 75 multifamily chargers and 32 DC fast chargers across the service area.
