This document describes how utilities are working to enable rates and programs specifically to customers with personal electric vehicles (PEVs). These services include the ability to enroll, register, and initially setup communications between a PEV and the utility (one-time setup), the ability to repeatedly re-establish communications for each PEV charging session (repeat communications/rebinding), the ability to provide PEV charging (and other) status information to customer information channels (e.g. web, display devices), and the ability to correctly bill PEV customers according to their selected rates/programs.
