The Virginia Department of Conservation and Recreation, Department of General Services (DGS), Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV), and Department of Transportation (DOT), as well as any locality, public institution of higher education, or school boards, may operate retail fee-based PEV charging infrastructure on its property. A locality may restrict use to employees of the locality and authorized visitors and may install signage that details these restrictions.

PEV charging infrastructure access must be restricted to employees, students, and authorized visitors only during school hours, and must be accompanied by appropriate signage.
