Va. seeks comment on electric car utility rates

By Associated Press

RICHMOND -- Virginia regulators are seeking comment on Dominion Virginia Power proposals on pricing for residential customers who own or lease plug-in electric vehicles.

Dominion anticipates that by 2013 more than 5,000 electric vehicles will be on the road in its service area and may grow to more than 86,000 by 2020.

Dominion's pilot program would offer different pricing options depending on the time of day. That means it would offer reduced rates for overnight charging and higher rates during peak times to customers.

The pricing program could apply only to charging the car, or for all of a customer's electric use.

The State Corporation Commission has scheduled a public hearing for June 8 in Richmond. Written comments must be submitted by June 1.
