Attention Jackson Residents: Make Sure You Have a Permit for That EV Charger

Multiple Jackson residents this week received a knock at their doors by a Township inspector.

The residents were handed letters and notices of violations for failing to apply for a permit to install an electric vehicle charger at their homes.

The letter indicates they would need to file a permit or face fines for the install.

  1. Who is tipping them off?

    Did these people file for a JCPL reimbursement?

    Or the inspector saw a level two charger outside the house?

    Seeing a charger outside can also mean it’s a level one charger that comes with the vehicle and plugs into a regular outlet without any installation

    • An inspector can easily tell if it’s a level one. They know that with $4k NJ inventive there are many being Teslas being bought, so all they need to do is a drive by, see a Tesla and look for the charger. I would assume they would only know if installed outside (or a conspiracy theory can be that JCPL is telling them based on increased usage).

      They are actually being very lenient by just giving a warning. Installing a 240 60 amp line by yourself or with an unlicensed/inexperienced electrician is a major fire risk.

      But for anyone buying a Tesla now, JCPL is covering up to $1,500 for the install cost (which covers the entire electrician fee in most cases), $250 reimbursement on charger cost, and off peak discounts when doing the above. But that is only when using a licensed electrician, getting a permit and inspection and installing a Juicebox or Chargepoint charger which works with Tesla using an adapter supplied by Tesla (Tesla charger not eligible).

      So anyone installing without permits or licensed electrician is losing out on $1,750, besides risking a fine.
