Electric vehicles

Plug-in electric vehicles (or PEVs) are an exciting choice for drivers. We are here to answer your questions about PEVs. WPS works with the Electric Power Research Institute. We are evaluating various PEV's, including the Chevy Volt and VIA Trux.

    The Three-Tier Time-of-Use rate option can lower the cost to charge your PEV.
