The Division of Capital Asset Management and Maintenance (DCAMM) manages the parking garage located at McCormack Building at 1 Ashburton Place, Boston, Massachusetts (“Facility”). 

What you need to know

As of June 6, 2019 (the “Effective Date”)

DCAMM developed an interim Electronic Vehicle Charging Policy (as of January 2017), which was further revised in July 2017, reflecting guidance from EOEEA. DCAMM is implementing a revised EVCP, commencing as of the Effective Date, to provide for utilization of its new ChargePoint Level 2 charging stations with SAE J1772 charge connections.

As of the Effective Date:

  1. EV Charging is available only to Commonwealth employees with McCormack Garage parking access.
  2. Level 1 charging using standard wall outlets (110v) is no longer available at the Facility.
  3. Level 2 charging on Floor 1 is assigned parking only. Those not assigned to these spaces will be towed at the owner’s expense.
  4. Level 2 charging on Floor 3 is available on a first-come, first-served basis using the DCAMM-installed ChargePoint charging stations.
  5. Parking in ChargePoint charging station spaces (each, an “EV Space”) is for charging EV (BEV/PHEV) vehicles only.
    • Any non-EV vehicle parking in an EV Space will be removed at the owner’s expense.
    • Owners of EV vehicles are encouraged to relocate their vehicle upon reaching a full state of charge if a non-EV Space is available.
  6. By utilizing an EV Space, the user understands and agrees that rates for EV charging are established by DCAMM and are subject to modification at any time and without notice. The rate shall be the average unit rate for the Facility during the most recent previous calendar quarter. Rates will be revised each subsequent calendar quarter consistent with this policy.

All payments are made through ChargePoint using the ChargePoint App or by using a ChargePoint card. Drivers may obtain and register the ChargePoint App and/or ChargePoint card, free of charge, at https://www.chargepoint.com/drivers/. Creating a ChargePoint account enables drivers to set up mobile and email notifications for vehicle charging updates. Drivers are also able to use the App to track charging times, charging locations, fees, energy (kWh) used, greenhouse gases saved, and greenhouse emissions prevented.
