New Guidelines: EV Charging Readiness for New Commercial, Institutional and Industrial Buildings

Providing some spaces for students, customers, and employees to charge vehicles during the day is encouraged in new commercial and institutional buildings.

The demand for charging facilities at new commercial and institutional locations, including schools, is much lower than residential uses. However, some provision for EV charging 'at work' is important for broadening the range of charging options within the community. This provides an opportunity for an employee, customer or student to charge their electric vehicle on-site.

Please view the City's updated Development Permit Area (DPA) guidelines to learn more about the recommended EV charging infrastructure.
