Electrical Vehicle Supply Equipment (EVSE) Installation Permit Application Process
The City of Oakdale provides the following steps to ensure that charging stations can be installed with minimal effort.
Vehicles with internal charging units can plug into existing 120 volt receptacles and do not require modification to the electrical system. The installation of EVSE directly wired to the electrical system will require a permit. The steps in the permitting process are outlined below.
The installation of a residential single unit EVSE will be issued as a standard electrical permit. This is to help ease the permit process. The homeowner can opt to have the station installed by a licensed electrical contractor or the homeowner can install it.
Licensed Contractor - needs:
Minnesota Electrical Contractor’s License
Contractor License Number
Commercial EVSE Installation
Licensed electrical contractors are required for commercial installations. Units installed will require review by City of Oakdale zoning staff.
