AKEVA EV Rate RCA Petition

Currently, there are no electric vehicle (EV) fast chargers (Level 3) on Alaska‚Äôs continuous road system. 

The high monthly electrical cost associated with turning on fast chargers in Alaska prohibits the building of an EV fast charging network to connect Alaska and enable long range EV travel or commuting. 

Lack of fast chargers is a barrier to EV adoption in Alaska and demand charges are a contributing factor.  To address this barrier, AKEVA is petitioning the Regulatory Commission of Alaska (RCA) to take regulatory action to address effect of demand charges on EV fast charging.

You can support this petition by sending an email to the RCA at rca.mail@alaska.gov and asking the commission to begin a regulatory process to address EV fast charging.
