EVCS Graphics for Web 375x220
The City of Long Beach has adopted an expedited and streamlined Electric Vehicle Charging Station (EVCS) permitting process for homes and businesses. In compliance with the California Government Code, the new process helps residents and businesses to achieve timely and cost-effective installations of the charger stations and related supply equipment for various electric vehicles, such as the Chevy Bolt, Hyundai Kona and Tesla Model X. The City encourages the use of EVCSs by removing unreasonable barriers, minimizing associated costs and expanding the ability of residents and business owners to install a charger station.
