Title: What is the Controllable Electrical Demand from Non-Residential Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment in the San Diego Region?

Abstract

The EVSE deployed by The EV Project included both residential and non-residential units. Approximately 4,000 non-residential AC Level 2 (ACL2) EVSE were installed in workplace environments, fleet applications and publicly accessible locations near retail centers, parking lots, and similar locations. The power required to recharge a plug-in electric vehicle (PEV) can be a significant additional electrical load to electric grid but may also provide a controllable resource for mitigating grid overload issues. Electric utilities seek ways to reduce their generating costs by controlling the maximum (peak) load on their system, their generating resources, and frequency and voltage control on the system. This management may be achieved indirectly, through rates that incentivize their customers (including PEV owners) to manage the charging of their vehicles, or may take the form of direct utility control of non-residential EVSE. What insight can The EV Project data provide related to the magnitude of this impact and the potential controllable demand? The paper What is the Controllable Electrical Demand from Residential EVSE in the San Diego Region?1 addressed this question for residential EVSE. This paper quantifies the total controllable electrical load imposed on the electric grid by non-residential PEV charging in the San Diego region ofmore » The EV Project.« less
