Electric Vehicle Charging Station Installation Challenges and Operational Management David Worthington Fleet Manager County of Sonoma
County Installed EV Charging Stations To Date 37 Charging Stations 17 Fleet Use Only 20 Public 16 Different Sites 6 Fleet Use Only 10 Pubic 74 Charging Ports 34 Fleet Use Only 40 Public Total EV Charging Stations Located in the County To Date 85 Charging Stations 30 Fleet Use Only 55 Public 34 Different Sites 9 Fleet Use Only 25 Pubic 150 Charging Ports 60 Fleet Use Only 90 Public 8 Different Cities or Towns 10 Different Cities and Towns
County Planned EV Charging Station Additions 12 Charging Stations 4 Different Sites 24 Charging Ports Fleet Use Only
Site Location Choice Public or Fleet Use? Location Needs Assessment Voltage Available Accessibility Infrastructure Costs Vehicle Designs
Public or Fleet Use Only Challenges Fleet Use OnlyPublic Accessibility Fee Structure Hours of Operation Ease of Use Vandalism Customer Service Data Tracking Driver Training Sophistication of Equipment Restricting Public Access
Fleet Use Only Typically Less Expensive on a Per Station Cost Average Publically Accessible
Location Needs Assessment 3 Charging Stations for 2 Spaces?
How Much Voltage is Available?
How Accessible is the Location?
Public Accessibility Consideration In 2009 At One of Our First Sites
Same Site in 2013
Public Accessibility Challenges Is It a Fueling Station or a Parking Space? Federal -- American with Disabilities Act (ADA) State – Building Codes Local – Permitting
Infrastructure Costs Vary Greatly Reasonable Cost of Installation
High Cost of Installation
300 Feet of Trenching
Through Two Parking Lots
How Sophisticated is the Equipment? Do You Need Use Data?
Vehicle Design Challenges Charging Port at Left Fender
Charging Port at Right Quarter Panel If it is an “Accessible” Station the cord may not be long enough
Maintenance Challenges Circuit Breaker Turned Off and Forgot to be Flipped Back On……?
Maintenance Challenges Curling and Uncurling Cords Every Day?
Driver Training….. The Key to Everything…..
Public or Employees Using Fleet Only Charging Stations
