Contra Costa County Adopts Streamlined Electric Charging Station Ordinance

Contra Costa County Board of Supervisors adopts a streamlined permitting process for electric charging stations.

A newly adopted County ordinance facilitates the installation of electric vehicle charging stations within the County’s jurisdiction by making the building permitting process more transparent and accessible to the public. Increasing the number of electric vehicle charging stations within the County is consistent with the policy direction previously established by the Board of Supervisors to lower greenhouse gas emissions within the County.

Consistent with the adopted ordinance and State law, applications submitted for the installation of electric vehicle charging stations will be approved administratively upon compliance with the health and safety requirements of the State building code, and will not be subjected to discretionary approvals by third parties such as home owners associations.
