Tucson Electric Power customers who own electric vehicles could soon get new incentives for charging them at home, under a pilot program approved by state regulators.

The Arizona Corporation Commission also approved a pilot residential load-management program, which will allow TEP to control participating customers’ thermostats to help the utility manage peak demand loads.

But TEP will end up spending a little less money on existing state-mandated programs designed to help customers save energy and lessen the need to build new power plants.

The commission on Tuesday unanimously approved TEP’s long-delayed 2018 energy-efficiency plan, which is funded by ratepayers to help the utility meet a statewide goal of achieving energy savings totaling 22 percent by 2020.
