What Is Rule 29?

SCE's EV infrastructure tariff, Rule 29, updates the California Public Utility Commission's (CPUC) previous policy of authorizing electrical distribution infrastructure located on the utility side of the customer meter on a case-by-case basis to the practice of treating the process for installing EV charging stations in commercial, industrial, and multifamily properties the same as other distribution infrastructure authorized on an ongoing basis.
