Community and local governments should take steps to ensure its citizens and businesses can install EVSE at home or in public spaces.

To do this, communities should:

  • Accept and understand installation requirements of EVSE (building and electrical contractors)
  • Anticipate and enable an efficient permitting process for new EV owners
  • Consider location and number of public EV charging stations
  • Consider ordinances for EV public parking spaces
  • Develop a maintenance and training plan for EVSE infrastructure
  • Install safe and reliable EVSE (


Plug-In Electric Vehicle Readiness Scorecard

The Plug-In Electric Vehicle Readiness Scorecard helps communities assess their readiness for the arrival of plug-in electric vehicles (PEVs) and electric vehicle supply equipment (EVSE).

EV Drivers Go Wireless

Wireless charging, or wireless power transfer, is based on inductive power transfer, a concept that goes back to the theories of wireless power transmission proposed by Nicola Tesla in the late 1800s and early 1900s. During wireless charging, electrical energy from a power source is transmitted to an electrical load without using manmade conductors. Instead, […]

EVSE – Embedded Meter Incorporates Communication Protocols

The next generation of residential electric vehicle supply equipment (EVSE) will likely have the option for an embedded meter within it. There are multiple requirements driving the need for the embedded meter EVSE. Learn more in this article by Leviton’s Kenneth Brown, Director Engineering, Commercial and Industrial.
