Permit Template

Use this template to develop a standard permit for residential charging stations that allows for quick, safe installation of electric vehicle supply equipment (EVSE).

Deploying electric charging equipment requires cooperation from retailers, municipalities, installers, and consumers. Electrical contractors and inspectors can learn about safety, technical, and consumer issues before installing charging equipment by watching the EVSE Residential Charging Installation video on the Clean Cities YouTube channel. This training helps electrical contractors and inspector prepare homes for safe and reliable vehicle charging.

Clean Cities Project Awards

The U.S. Department of Energy funded multiple electrification projects through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act to accelerate the deployment of electric drive vehicles and charging equipment. These included Clean Cities electric drive projects and transportation electrification projects.
