Midstate receives updates from the State every six months on how many EVs are registered in our territory. We have no information beyond this number. We have assumptions about how these EVs are affecting our system, but we need hard data to design future EV programs. The chargers we are supplying to our members will communicate back to us so we can learn how and when they are being used. After this data is collected and analyzed, Midstate could offer programs designed to change charge times such as load-shifting, demand response, or time-of-use rates.
The program is open to anyone with an electric vehicle that has a battery size of 2 kWh and is registered at an address that Midstate provides electric service to. A copy of the DMV registration must be provided to Midstate.
The chargers we are supplying are from Zef Energy. Zef takes a Clipper Creek charger and adds communication and control modules, turning a simple plug and play charger into a “smart” charger. These chargers have a capacity of 7.7kW, which will add about 25 miles of range per hour of charging.

If you are moving to another location that is served by Midstate you may bring the charger with you. If you are moving outside of Midstate’s territory you must leave the charger behind.
EV charging could have negative effects on the MEC system depending on where, how, and when it takes place. The effects could be on our physical infrastructure or our power bills from BPA. The data that MEC collects now will ensure that we can properly plan to mitigate these effects in the future, particularly as EVs continue to grow in popularity.
You will need to use the ZEFNET Charge Mobile App. It brings charger locating, charger payment, and real-time charging status updates into the palm of your hand. Drivers receive tips on how to use charging equipment and can check their payment history all in one place. The app is available for download in Google Play and Apple App store.
