A large West Coast utility recently invested in one of the largest utility program initiatives in the history of U.S. transportation electrification. This clean transportation initiative will install thousands of electric vehicle charging stations in apartment and condo complexes, malls, and office buildings across the utility’s service area. Red Clay Consulting was instrumental to the success of this project, which created an end-to-end pricing and billing solution that includes monthly billing calculations based on dynamic hourly prices. Now, electric vehicle owners served by the utility can conveniently charge their cars and have this cost bundled into their monthly electric bill.
Red Clay was spearheading unrelated IT projects for the utility when the clean transportation initiative was introduced. For the project to work, the client needed to include dynamic hourly pricing and billing. Red Clay used their expertise to propose a pilot solution. Red Clay’s experienced consultants customized an existing software product to solve the complex billing challenge and to offer the utility a complete end-to-end solution. The electric vehicle charging station pilot program was a success and became a full-scale implementation.
The big win for consumers is the convenience of more electric vehicle charging locations. For Red Clay, the benefit is more far reaching. Red Clay can apply the core components of the dynamic pricing and billing solution they created to a wide range of projects. Red Clay knows first-hand the challenges of a project of this scope and can use this project experience to guide any utility – whether they have started a similar project or are just considering it.
