Highway Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment (EVSE) Installation Requirements

The Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) must install at least one EVSE at each interstate highway rest area where electrical service will reasonably permit. IDOT may adopt specifications detailing the type of EVSE and rules governing station siting, user fees, and maintenance.

The Illinois State Toll Highway Authority (ISTHA) must also construct and maintain at least one EVSE at any location along toll highways where it has entered into an agreement with an entity for the purposes of providing motor fuel service stations and facilities, garages, stores, or restaurants. ISTHA may charge a fee for the use of the EVSE to offset the costs of construction and maintenance. ISTHA may also adopt rules regarding station siting, user fees and maintenance.
