To serve the growing list of SDG&E employees that have purchased plug-in electric vehicles (PEVs), and to provide implementation examples for our commercial/industrial customers, SDG&E has initially installed pay-for-use employee charging at strategic locations around its San Diego, California service territory. With the chargers at these locations, and today's fully electric vehicles, employees can attend to any intra-day trip and reach the furthest boundaries of SDG&E's 4,100 square-mile service territory. As of May 2013, 37 SDG&E employees have purchased PEVs, and the list is growing rapidly. Based on an employee survey of frequent intra-day destinations, SDG&E will expand its employee charging deployment to ensure it serves all PEV drivers and driving trips. SDG&E's workplace charging expansion plans will help make PEV ownership as convenient and comfortable as conventional vehicle ownership, while minimizing costs for drivers and utility customers.
