Now is the time for local governments to get ready by developing the policies and programs you need to support the PEVs already in your communities. This section includes the final statewide and regional reports for the U.S. DOE grant to California on PEV Community Readiness. It also includes a Toolkit for local governments that highlights actions a community can take to get ready for PEVs. Each easy-to-reference section includes a basic description of the needed action, its purpose, and examples from California communities and stakeholders. Click on the links below to download the DOE state and regional reports, the PEV readiness toolkit, as well as a number of important local government references cited in the reports.
This toolkit highlights actions a community can take to get ready for the plug-in electric vehicles (PEVs) that are arriving in communities across California. Each easy-to-reference section includes a basic description of the needed action, its purpose, and examples from California communities and stakeholders. The sections are designed to stand alone, so you can refer only to those sections needed. Now is the time for local governments to get ready by developing the policies and programs you need to support the PEVs already in your communities and the thousands more expected soon on California roadways.

PEVC Report: Streamlining the Permitting and Inspections Process for Plug-In Electric Vehicle Home Charger Installations
The process of planning and executing residential Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment (EVSE) or charging stations required coordination of many participants. The resulting cost, timing, and complexity are dependent on how each perticipant manages his or her own steps and how effectively they hand off the job to each other. This report seeks to characterize key aspects of the installation process as they relate to permitting and inspection considerations, highlighting common challenges and questions that arise. Through discussion, examples and recommendations, it also seeks to address a troubling trend: the permitting and inspection process for charging equipment is becoming more onerous in some jurisdictions over time. This paper provides recommendations and references so that practitioners can design streamlined procedures for permitting and inspection in their jurisdiction.
PEVC Report: Accessibility and Signage for Plug-In Electric Vehicle Charging Infrastructure
This report recommends accessibility standards for charging infrastructure installed as part of the new construction of facilities, and also standards for installations at existing facilities. The recomeneded standards distinguish between charging that is publicly available and charging that is restricted in access (e.g. residential). The report also recommends standardized general purpose signs to identify charging stations and direct users to the stations, and regulatory signs to designate the permissible uses of the charging facilities and to prohibit certain uses where necessary. All regulatory signs must be supported by appropriate rules, ordinances or policies.
Ready Set Charge California
To develop EV-ready communities, local government leaders are working closely with industry and community partners to address five broad domains of work: Streamlining residential electric vehicle supply equipment (EVSE) installations, accelerating EVSE deployment in multi-unit dwellings (MUDs), developing comprehensive regional charging networks, integrating PEVs in regional transportation systems, buildings, and energy grids, and accelerating PEV adoption by consumers, fleets, and car-sharing organizations.
