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. Additional information, including that for DC chargers, 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.
Electric Vehicle Charger Selection Guide
The core of the guide is comprised of EV charger specification tables in the last half of the guide. The target audience is a contractor, a permitting agency (for compliance with building code and health and safety code), or a technically savvy station owner. These tables address features that are important for local jurisdictions permitting publicly accessible charging stations.
