Electric Vehicle (EV) Charging Station Requirements
EV charging stations installed in Minnesota must:
- Be able to be used by any make, model, or type of EV;
- Comply with state safety standards and standards set by the Society of Automotive Engineers; and
- Be capable of bi-directional charging once electrical utilities achieve a cost-effective ability to draw electricity from EVs connected to the utility grid.
These requirements may not apply if the installations require significant upgrades.
