Siting and Design Guidelines for Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment

These guidelines identify key siting and design issues that are relevant to local governments, developers, homeowners, businesses, utility providers, and other organizations. The guidelines provide an overview of elements of site selection and design and installation scenarios, including considerations for commercial lots, multi-family residences, on-street charging, service station models, and fleets.

For additional guidance on siting EV charging stations, please refer to NYSERDA’s “Site Design for Electric Vehicle Charging Stations,” which can be downloaded at
