The Rajasthan Electricity Regulatory Commission (RERC) has issued a draft order for electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure, tariffs, and other regulatory issues.
As per the draft order, a tariff of ₹6 (~$0.081) applies to public charging stations (PCS) under two categories: LT-8 and HT-6. The tariff also applies to battery charging stations (BCS) and battery swapping stations (BSS). The order permits a 15% rebate for PCS during off-peak hours between 11 PM and 6 AM.
In June this year, the Commission had issued a draft order inviting feedback from stakeholders on its proposal for new business models for setting up public EV charging infrastructure.
The latest draft order comes with a ‘regulatory framework for promoting electric vehicles and their impact on the grid,’ referred to by RERC as a concept paper on EVs.
