What permits are needed?

In all cases, building permits are required prior to any construction involving the installation of an EV charger or supporting infrastructure (e.g., conduit, electrical panels, etc.). Larger development projects may require Planning Commission or City Council review prior to obtaining entitlements. Please contact the Planning Division at 650-330-6702 if you have questions regarding EV requirements for a discretionary project.
