Program Manager -Electric Vehicles

Date: Sep 22, 2022

Location: Melville, NY, US

Company: PSEG

PSEG offers a unique experience to our more than 12,000 employees – we provide the resources and opportunities for career development that come with being a Fortune 500 company, as well as the attention, camaraderie and care for one another you might typically associate with a small business. Our focus on combatting climate change through clean energy technology, our new net zero climate vision for 2030 and enhanced commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion; and supporting the communities we serve make this a particularly exciting time to join PSEG. With our reimagined workplace, we recognize the importance of flexibility in terms of when and where employees perform their jobs.  And many of our jobs do not require you to live in the tristate area.

Consistent with our core commitment of safety, PSEG has made the decision to require all new hires to be fully COVID-19 vaccinated as a condition of hire.  "Full vaccination" is defined as two weeks after both doses of a two-dose vaccine or two weeks since a single-dose vaccine has been administered.   Anyone unable to be vaccinated, either because of a sincerely held religious belief or a disability can request a reasonable accommodation.

Job Summary

The electric vehicle program’s goal is to increase customer’s adoption of electric vehicles (EVs), with particular emphasis on providing incentives for charging vehicles during off-peak hours.  New York State passed the Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act (CLCPA) in 2019 which requires a total of 850,000 EVs to be on the road by 2025.  The Long Island share of that goal is 180,000 EVs by 2025.

Each year, PSEG Long Island files a Utility 2.0 plan covering a wide range of topics related to energy efficiency, battery storage, EVs, and other Utility of the Future initiatives.  In the most recent filing, the following EV programs are offered:
•    Incentives for purchase of qualifying residential smart chargers
•    Discounts for charging vehicles during off-peak hours (Smart Charge Rewards)
•    A DC Fast Charging (DCFC) credit for qualifying facilities at the end of each year for seven years
•    Upfront incentives for “make-ready” infrastructure
•    LIPA ownership of DCFC infrastructure, along with leasing back to developers
•    A program to encourage Fleet Electrification

The total budget for the above initiatives from 2022 – 2025 approaches $100 million.  Overall, the EV program is the largest new initiative for the Long Island RES team in many years and is being closely watched by LIPA, DPS and NYSERDA.

This position is responsible for the overall performance and operations of the EV Program.  Manage contracts with key suppliers and the transfer of proprietary data that will enable the Company to better understand the impact of EV charging on the electric grid.  Work closely with legal and real estate departments to arrange for negotiated easements on customer property and the associated lease agreements for EV make-ready infrastructure.  Work with the marketing department to prepare advertising and marketing materials.  Develop methods to streamline and improve data quality.  Provide reports summarizing the number of EVs sold and the number of various types or charging equipment, along with load profile data showing the impact of charging on the electric grid
