Electric Vehicle Charger Selection Guide
Local Government Electric Vehicle Purchasing

Through the California Department of General Services you will find cars, trucks, vans, SUVs and electric vehicle charging stations that are available to purchase through existing state contracts. Local agencies are encouraged to take advantage of the volume discounts achieved under these contracts.

Look for the green or orange badges that distinguish which vehicles are available to state and local agencies, and which are exclusively available to local agencies. You’ll also find links to information about rebates and high-occupancy vehicle (HOV) lane access, and learn how to acquire these vehicles through the state contracts. We are well on our way to the zero-emission vehicle fleet envisioned by Governor Brown, and these contracts enable state and local government agencies to lead by example in California’s effort to combat climate change.

Electric Vehicle Charger Selection Guide

This guide was funded under multiple grants from the California Energy Commission (CEC). The goal of this guide is to help site hosts and others learn about, evaluate and compare the features of EV charging equipment (available as of March, 2017) to assist them in selecting a charger for their application.

Section 2 in this guide provides an overview of Electric Vehicle Charger (EVC) equipment, how it works, and considerations when making a purchase. Section 2 includes a table of EVC features available from a variety of commercially available products in the United States. Information on EVC features was collected by sending specification sheets of predetermined criteria to EVC manufacturers with a request for an email response with completed specifications for currently available AC charger models1 . Additional information, including that for DC chargers 1 , was collected using publically available technical specifications. As funding allows, the information in this guide will be updated periodically to include new models and specifications as product offerings evolve.
