New MUD developments with five or more units must designate 15% of required off-street parking as plug-in electric vehicle (PEV) make-ready parking spaces. Prior to occupancy, EVSE must be installed in 5% of off-street parking. MUDs must then install EVSE in an additional 5% of parking spaces within 3 years of occupancy and another 5% within 6 years of occupancy. MUDs may install make-ready parking spaces and EVSE at a faster rate than required. Throughout the installation of EVSE in make-ready parking spaces at MUDs, at least 5% of EVSE must be accessible for people with disabilities.

The Site Improvement Advisory Board must submit a recommendation to the Commissioner of Community Affairs to amend the statewide site improvement standards for MUDs to include requirements for parking spaces with EVSE in the calculation of minimum required parking spaces. Requirements must include the following:

  • A parking space with EVSE or make-ready equipment may count as two parking spaces for the purpose of complying with a minimum parking space requirement but may not reduce total required parking by more than 10 percent.
  • All parking space calculations for EVSE and make-ready equipment pursuant to this section shall be rounded up to the next full parking space.
