Plug-in Electric Vehicle Charging Station Readiness

The “EV Charging Station Permit Streamlining Map” (EVCS Streamlining Map) is a living companion to the July 2019 Electric Vehicle Charging Station Permitting Guidebook. Its purpose is to create a shared, understanding of EVCS permit streamlining across the state, and track compliance with California’s AB 1236 (2015) law. We hope communities use this tool to easily replicate success, leverage lessons learned, and save time as we all work to aggressively build out California’s zero emission vehicle infrastructure network.

For more information, refer to the Permitting Electric Vehicle Charging Stations Scorecard.
