PSC to hold hearing on 'elecrification' of transportation

North Dakota’s Public Service Commission is holding a public hearing on electrification of the transportation sector.

But members of the PSC are skeptical of the plans.

The federal Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act calls for states to set rates for charging stations and other infrastructure for electric vehicles.

Commission chairman Julie Fedorchak said this could be a heavy lift.

"People are very unrealistic of their expectations about the utilities' ability to electrify the transportation sector, and change everything from thermal to renewable energy, all at the same time, by 2035," Fedorchak said. "It is absolutely not possible under any scenario."

The hearing is Nov. 3rd.
