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 laws AB 1236 (2015) and AB 970 (2021). We hope communities use this tool, and the others linked below, 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. We are currently updating these resources to align with AB 970, so make sure to check back!
