Public Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment (EVSE) Requirements

EVSE that is available for public use must meet the following requirements:

  • If publicly funded, must be equipped to enable universal access, as defined by the New Hampshire Department of Transportation;
  • If the owner or operator requires payment for use of the EVSE, must accept multiple payment options; and
  • Must not require users to pay a subscription fee or obtain a membership at any organization to use the equipment.
In addition, the owner or operator must disclose the location and characteristics of each EVSE to the U.S. Department of Energy's Alternative Fuels Data Center. Information that must be disclosed includes, but is not limited to, address, voltage, and timing restrictions.
