State Hears Discussion on Mileage Based User Fees for EVs

HARRISBURG – A recent hearing of the Pennsylvania Senate Transportation Committee recently focused on a mileage-based user fee for electric vehicles in Pennsylvania.

One expert in the field, Electrification Coalition policy analyst Nick Miller says if a flat 3 cents per mile tax or 380 dollar annual fee were to be imposed on electric vehicle drivers in the state, it would generate an estimated 18 to 24 million dollars this year.

Miller says such a fee must be equitable for cars, trucks, commercial, and all other users of the highways. While about 97-hundred EV’s were registered in the state in 2019, today that number stands at over 63-thousand.
