EV Charging Stations
The Commission regulates certain publicly available electric vehicle (“EV”) charging stations in Oklahoma, pursuant to the Driving on Road Infrastructure with Vehicles of Electricity (DRIVE) Act of 2021, 68 O.S. §§ 6501 et seq.
The Commission does not regulate the following types of EV charging stations:
- That are not available for use by the public (e.g., at a personal residence, including multifamily dwellings, workplaces, or other non-public locations).
- That dispense electrical energy at no cost to the consumer.
- Used solely for dispensing electrical energy in connection with operations in which the amount dispensed does not affect customer charges or compensation (e.g., a store provides a free charging station on its property, a paid parking lot provides a charging station for which there is no charge based on the amount of energy delivered, a car manufacturer provides free charging services for its owners, or an organization charges a monthly fee for unlimited use of its network of charging stations).
- With a charging capacity of less than fifty (50) kilowatts.
For more detailed information about the Commission’s regulation of EV charging stations, please refer to the Chapter 14 Rules.
