The EVSE Standards regulation establishes standardized EVSE requirements that will build driver confidence in accessing public charging infrastructure:

  1. Chargers must be accessible to drivers regardless of membership in an Electric Vehicle Service Provider’s network.
  2. EVSPs must operate credit card readers and mobile payment options on Level 2 and direct current fast charger EVSE allowing payment by members and non-members at EVSE locations that require payment.
  3. Each EVSE must have a sticker informing drivers of voltage and amperage capabilities of the unit.
  4. EVSPs must post all fees associated with a charging session.
  5. The interoperable billing standard Open Charge Point Interface must be installed on each EVSE. Other interoperable billing standards may also be used in addition to OCPI
  6. EVSPs must report new, current and decommissioned EVSE locations and access information to the National Renewable Energy Laboratory’s Alternative Fuels Data Center and CARB. The information reported includes pricing, EVSE model and location information.
