EVSE Locations

Selecting the optimal spot for installing EV chargers in your parking lot is a crucial decision to ensure convenience, accessibility, and efficiency. Here’s a step-by-step guide to help you pick the best location:

Opt for a location with good visibility. Clear signage and visible charging stations make it easier for EV drivers to locate the chargers, reducing frustration and confusion.
Ensure that the chosen location complies with accessibility guidelines, including ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) requirements. Provide adequate space for wheelchair access and maintain proper clearance around the chargers.
Assess the proximity to your electrical supply. Choosing a location close to existing electrical infrastructure can significantly reduce installation costs.
If possible, select a location with some form of weather protection or shading to shield both the charging equipment and EV drivers from extreme weather conditions.
Think about future growth. Ensure that the chosen location allows for the addition of more charging stations if demand increases over time.

Regulations, Accessibility and Permits​

Safety Regulations

Compliance with local fire and building codes is essential to ensure the safety of your EV charging station. This includes proper electrical wiring, safety equipment, and adherence to fire safety standards.

Permits and Inspections​

To establish an EV charging station, you must obtain the necessary permits from your local authorities. These permits typically involve detailed plans and specifications for the charging infrastructure. After installation, your station will undergo electrical inspections to ensure it complies with safety standards.

ADA and Accessibility

Like residential charging stations, commercial EV charging stations must comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Ensuring that charging stations are accessible to people with disabilities is a regulatory requirement. Learn more >>

Utility Approval

You’ll need approval from utility companies to connect your charging station to the grid. This ensures that the station’s electrical demands can be met without causing issues for the local power supply.


Installing EV chargers can be complex and expensive. Choose a qualified and experienced installer who can properly install your EV chargers in compliance with all local codes. Additionally, when budgeting for your EV charging station, you need to factor in the cost of materials, labor, permits, and inspections. 

A qualified installer for EV charging projects possesses key attributes such as proper licensing and certification, extensive experience in EV charging installations, a solid track record with references, compliance with local regulations, efficient permit handling, transparent communication, responsiveness, insurance coverage, and the ability to provide clear, detailed contracts. 

It’s worth noting that TurnOnGreen collaborates with an extensive network of certified electricians. We partner with local electricians and installers to guarantee the seamless execution of your installation projects.

EV Charging Policies

Prior to the installation of EV chargers, careful consideration should be given to the EV charging policies to be implemented on your premises. Questions to address include whether the chargers will be accessible to the general public or reserved for specific user groups, whether they will be fee-based or offered as a free service, and whether a uniform policy will apply to all chargers or if there will be variations in permissions and pricing. Regardless of the policy you select, it’s crucial to ensure that the signage displayed on your property and communications distributed to employees or residents align precisely with the policies configured.
