July 13, 2012

This report was prepared to highlight best practices for designing electric vehicle (EV) charging stations. Now that communities are ramping up with installations of EV supply equipment, designers are encountering a host of design issues that are generating creative solutions and mistakes. This report is intended to be used by persons who are responsible for safe and convenient design of EV charging stations. The report should be used alongside other resources, including those that cover electrical design standards for installation of EV supply equipment. This report addresses the kind of equipment available and how parking facility design offers both opportunities and challenges for charging station installations.
