Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment (EVSE) Local Permitting Policies

Cities and counties must adopt an ordinance that creates an expedited, streamlined permitting process for EVSE. Each city or county must consult with the local fire department or district and the utility director to develop the ordinance, which must include a checklist of all requirements for EVSE to be eligible for expedited review. A complete application that is consistent with the city or county ordinance must be approved, and entities submitting incomplete applications must be notified of the necessary required information to be granted expedited permit issuance.
