Selecting a vendor

PG&E offers a list of approved program vendors selling EV supply equipment (EVSE, or chargers) and management solutions, depending on whether participants select the EV Charge Owner option or the EV Charge Sponsor option. The full list is available to EV Charge Owners; a selected subset of these options will be available to EV Charge Sponsors.


The vendors will differ on charger models, software, costs and manufacturer details. PG&E does not offer preferences or recommendations for any of the approved program vendors, and program participants are responsible for determining the suitability of these products and services.


For more information about hardware and software features that vendors may offer, review the EV Charge Network Hardware & Software Guide and the EV Charge Network Approved Product Feature Filter.
