Solutions for State Agencies

In the coming years, more than $8 billion will be invested in EV infrastructure from programs administered by government agencies through various sources. Our Connect the Watts™ initiative has five areas of program design to keep in mind:

  1. Deploy Funding Quickly with Multiple Funding Rounds

  2. Value Charger Locations with a Transparent Scoring Rubric

  3. Publish a Schedule and Stick to it

  4. Solicit Public Comment on RFP Design

  5. Allow EVSPs to Build at Risk

A Partner for Utilities

Connecting EV fast chargers to the grid requires coordination with the local utility throughout the site design and installation process. There are many steps along the way, and EVgo is an experienced partner for your infrastructure builds and co-branding.

To ensure project success, EVgo also offers five best practices via Connect the Watts™:

  1. Streamline the easement process

  2. Maintain utility equipment inventory

  3. Staff design and construction teams with EV infrastructure in mind

  4. Streamline the study phase

  5. Streamline utility design approvals.

Solutions for Permitting Agencies

EVgo partners with transportation, environmental, and municipal agencies at the federal, state, and local levels. Each of these agencies may have different requirements and familiarities with EV infrastructure, which is why we compiled seven best practices from Connect the Watts™ to expedite the process:

  1. Adopt an Online Permitting Process

  2. Offer Expedited Processing that Shortens Permitting Timelines for EV Charger Projects

  3. Waive the Requirement for Pre-Appointment or Pre-Approvals for EV Charger Projects

  4. Standardize EVCS Permitting Reviews

  5. Streamline the Administrative Process to Avoid Document Processing Delays

  6. Require Only an Electrical Permit for these Primarily Electrical-Oriented Projects

  7. Bring Policy Level Support for Equipment Placements.
