Utility Infrastructure UpgradeiA Utility Infrastructure upgrade refers to when the EV charging deployment requires the utility to install new equipment, or up-size existing equipment in order to serve the charging stations.
Level 1iA Level 1 EV charger is a cord or charging system that typically comes with the vehicle and can be plugged into a standard 120 Volt, 20 Amp circuit wall outlet.
Level 2/DC Fast ChargeriA level 2 system provides faster charging than Level 1, and requires a 208 or 240V, most commonly on a 40A circuit. DC Fast Chargers most commonly require a 277/480V circuit, and are much higher power than Level 1 and Level 2.

Follow these Steps to Apply for the EV Charging Station Rebate Program
Burbank businesses can lead the charge to a greener, more sustainable future. BWP is here to help with charging stations, and to help make the process pain-free.
Come Up With a Plan
- The total number of charge ports deployed.
- Charging level: Level 1, Level 2, or DC fast charging.
- The location of charging stations at your site: Locating the charging stations as close as possible to the electric panel may minimize costs.
- If your planned deployment meets all applicable code requirements. Rules and regulations, including accessibility, will influence some of your decisions. We recommend that you work with an EV charging station professional to guide you through this process.
Review With a Professional
Electric vehicle charging stations have their own accessibility requirements and may necessitate additional accessible spaces.
The licensed electrical contractor or engineer can determine if the additional electric demand from the new charging stations will require upgrades to your existing electric panel. If upgrades are necessary, your contractor will need to contact BWP’s Electric Service Planning at (818) 238-3575 to determine if the BWP infrastructure serving your site has enough capacity, or if an upgrade is needed.
Apply for Permits
Please note that if your site needs a new panel, you will have to contact BWP’s Service Planning before applying for permits (see #2 above).
