Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment (EVSE) Requirements

EVSE installed in Minnesota must: 1) be able to be used by any make, model, or type of plug-in electric vehicle (PEV); 2) comply with state safety standards and standards set by the Society of Automotive Engineers; and 3) be capable of bi-directional charging once electrical utilities achieve a cost-effective ability to draw electricity from PEVs connected to the utility grid. These requirements may not apply if the installations require significant upgrades. (Reference Minnesota Statutes 325F.185 and 326B.35)
