Tacoma Power is planning to launch a two-year study in early 2019 to better understand the charging patterns for residential electric vehicles. In exchange for completion of surveys and data about EV charging and use, qualified customers may be eligible for up to $250 per year.

To be eligible, customers must be a residential Tacoma Power customer, own or lease a fully battery electric vehicle or plug in electric hybrid, and own their own EV charging equipment.
