Top three things to know about electric vehicle charging station (EVCS) permitting for homeowner associations (HOAs):
- The EVCS installer is responsible for applying for building permits, submitting plans and scheduling inspections.
- HOAs are considered commercial property, so keep that in mind when reviewing any guidance about permitting.
- The fees for EVCS installation permits and sign permits have been waived for Fairfax County properties for 18 months starting October 2022. The waiver may be continued beyond that after Fairfax County Board of Supervisors review.
