State Employee Electric Vehicle Charging

Zoom in and click on the icons to see the location, street address, and station count.

The Energy Office coordinates the installation and maintenance of electric vehicle (EV) charging stations for state employees. According to Drive Electric Vermont, electric vehicle sales in Vermont increased 48% in 2022 from the previous year, highlighting the need to support the growing number of EV owners. BGS has installed 27 level 2 stations to date at state workplaces and installations at new locations are occurring frequently. This page is meant to help state employees know what charging stations are available to them and answer common questions related to EV charging at the workplace.

Station Availability

Any station located at a state office building is available for employee use except for stations that clearly state that they are for fleet use only. These stations are needed to support the growing number of state-owned electric fleet vehicles. Please note that some stations that are available to employees are also available to the public, and some have had the online visibility shut off to reduce public usage and increase station availability for employees. 

Station Cost Recovery Rate

Currently, the state-owned charging stations charge a cost recovery rate of $0.26 per kilowatt hour which is enough to recoup the costs associated with purchasing, installing, and maintaining the stations. Click here for the notice to employees detailing the rate implementation. When the vehicle reaches a full charge there is no cost for leaving the vehicle plugged in. Please be courteous of other employees who may want to utilize the station by moving your vehicle when it reaches a full charge.

Station Error Reporting

Charging stations are actively monitored to see station usage data as well as operational status. Occasionally, station issues are not remotely visible to station managers, so employees are encouraged to leave a message through ChargePoint if it is a ChargePoint station, or report issues to the energy office at BGS.

Updates and Features

Our goal at the Energy Office is to provide convenient and reliable EV charging to as many state employees as possible. When there are changes to station policies, features, or new stations, this page will be updated to reflect the changes. We are working to expand charging station access and convenience for employees, and we appreciate your patience as we continue to make progress towards this goal.
