Electric Vehicle Charging Station (EVCS) Toolkit Guide

This toolkit is intended for use by city and county staff for review of electric vehicle charging station (EVCS) installations. The applicant for an EVCS installation must first obtain a building permit and complete the forms listed in the checklists. The installation checklist provides detailed information on phases from planning for EVCSs to execution and inspection.

  1. Checklist for Residential and Nonresidential Permit Application

The checklists are one page reference sheets to ensure proper EVCS installation. Submittal and documentation requirements are also clearly listed in the checklists. Required by AB1236, this checklist is a guide for permit applicants. These checklists are in the public domain, and may be used or modified for individual jurisdictions as seen fit for a specific jurisdiction to post on their corresponding website.
