According to a transcript of testimony before PUCO staff and attorneys, Sharon Schroder, DP&L’s director of regulatory affairs, said the utility will “work with the Ohio EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) in charging station host applicants within its service territory to facilitate the installation of the fast chargers.”
“‘In front of the meter’ is industry terminology that means along the grid that the utility operates (with ‘behind the meter’ meaning the customers’ house/business),” PUCO spokesman Matt Schilling said in an email. “DC fast chargers refer to the type of charging stations. Direct-current chargers use more power to charge cars faster.”

DP&L has not responded to recent questions about its plans for EV investments. Another message seeking comment was sent to a company spokeswoman Thursday.
The stipulation agreement has not yet been approved by a PUCO vote.
