Have your say: Measurement Canada launches survey on energy based per-kWh billing for EV drivers

EV charger survey

Late last year Measurement Canada announced it was going to change the way electric vehicle (EV) drivers are billed when they plug in to a public charger. Due to current regulations, EV drivers are billed based on the amount of time they are plugged in, and not on the amount of energy consumed.

This leads to inequitable fees for EV drivers as some cars can charge faster than others.

Measurement Canada wants to change that by implementing a per kilowatt-hours (kWh) consumed, much like how gas car drivers are billed based on how much fuel they pump into their cars.

As part of the 18-month long process to do so, the government agency has launched the consultation phase by publishing a short survey for EV drivers.

The 5 to 10 minute survey covers topics like your current charging habits at home, your experiences with commercial charging stations, and also asks for some personal information like where you live and how old you are.

All information is anonymous and will only be reported in aggregate.

You can take the survey here.
