EV Charging Infrastructure Development Checklist:

  • Determine project scope, budget, funding mechanism, and timeline using the following considerations:
  • Determine ideal project site, based on existing infrastructure and infrastructure needs
  • Determine the type and costs of charging equipment needed, typically a Level 2 station
  • Decide whether the stations will need to be networked, including if utilization data will be collected and if payment capabilities are necessary
  • Determine if a formal solicitation is needed
  • Choose a network and/or charging infrastructure manufacturer and provider
  • Identify installation needs and costs and find a certified electrical contractor
  • Apply for grant funding, rebates, and tax credits
  • Obtain required permits
  • Determine additional site needs, including signage and security
  • Assess charging infrastructure maintenance and operation needs and costs
  • Confirm the station is included on EV station finding apps, like www.plugshare.com
