Florida Public Service Commission Electric Vehicle Charging Roundtable

Above is a link to a 3 hour 17 minute video of the EV Charging Roundtable discussion to the Florida Public Service Commission. It's purpose was to discuss the potential effects of public and privately-owned electric vehicle charging on the state’s electric grid. Participating were representatives from Tesla, GM, electric utilities, companies providing charging equipment and Drive Electric Florida.

Drive Electric Florida Voting Members:

Our club, Florida Tesla Enthusiasts, is a voting member of Drive Electric Florida and at about 40 minutes into the video the Chairman of the Commission asked about our club. At about 1 hour 17 minutes into the video Tesla made a presentation. 

I know that not many of us have more than 3 hours to spare on this type of topic, but it illustrates the FPSC's appreciation of the inevitability of the exponential growth of EVs and their desire to proactively plan for that load growth on the Florida electric grids.

Here's an article summarizing the Roundtable discussions:
