The proposed procedure establishes that all regulated customers can install electric chargers for their private use, since they have a meter for this purpose. In the case of a "Large Client" or "Distributor Company", who wish to sell a letter to electric vehicles, they will be required to submit to the procedure that regulates their responsibilities.
Three types of charging stations are established: Category I, a Large Client that installs chargers on their fields; Category II, Distribution Company that installs chargers in its concession area; Category III, private company or natural person who installs chargers in a recharging system not connected to the distribution and / or transmission networks.
Once the comment phase of the Public Consultation has been completed, the ASEP will make the comments received available to the interested parties and will subsequently decide on the approval of the proposal or the modifications that may be appropriate.
