This Electrical Inspection Checklist: Electric Vehicle Charging Equipment is engineered to provide an NEC compliant process to guide you in your safety inspections.
Electric vehicles are an increasingly popular form of transports and have seen both established manufacturers leaning toward them, while new emergent companies like Tesla also gain notoriety.
Electric cars are very powerful and, on a full charge, contain a large amount of energy. As such, it is important that we are able to provide a safe experience for users of electric cars. The first step to providing that is being able to maintain the equipment with effective inspection processes.
This template is malleable and you can add or remove steps or detail within each step as you please. Each inspection-specific task contains the relevant NEC section reference to contextualize the advice and provide a greater opportunity to see how the process relates to the source material. It is recommended that you familiarize yourself with the standards before beginning any inspection.
Throughout the checklist, you will find form fields where you can record relevant information. This data will be stored in the template overview which you can view on the left-hand tab for the template. You can export this data for review to provide an overview into your inspections.
If you utilize the form fields well, you can select to print your checklist which will give you the option to save it as a PDF. This can, therefore, act as a report generator which you can save and then send to the relevant stakeholders once your inspection is completed.
