An Introduction to the Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment (EVSE) Permitting and Inspection Guidelines
Developed in collaboration with New Buildings Institute (NBI), Forth Mobility, and several expert reviewers the Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment (EVSE) Permitting and Inspection Guidelines provide an overview of code requirements for the installation of Level 2 Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment (EVSE) installations and 120V or 240V outlets in single family, in Multifamily and Office buildings. The guides reference the 2020 NEC, 2021 IBC and 2017 ICC A117.11 as well as the 2017 NEC 2018 IBC and 2017 ICC A117.11. In many parts of the United States, navigating building permits required for distributed energy resources such as solar, storage, and electric vehicles (EVs) can be a daunting process. By providing specific and replicable lists of permitting and inspection requirements, local jurisdictions can streamline the permitting and inspection process by reducing informational barriers while helping ensure the design and installation of these distributed energy resources are consistent, code compliant, and safe.
In this video produced by NBI and Forth Mobility, listen in to a description of how to use these guidelines and an overview of code requirements for the installation of Level 2 Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment (EVSE) installations and 120V or 240V outlets in single family buildings, multifamily, and office buildings..
