If you own, rent or manage multi-family housing, installing plug-in EV charging equipment is a community project. It may require approval from your home owners’ association (HOA) or property owner.
Since multi-unit residence installations are often in common areas, it’s important to involve your HOA as soon as possible.
Steps to help get your community plug-in ready
Take a poll and see how many people in your community may be buying a plug-in vehicle
Learn about the different charging equipment available at www.pluginamerica.org/accessories or GoElectricDrive.com
Look at the property layout and potential location of meters, wiring and parking spaces and read the existing rules of placing equipment in common and private areas
Come to a consensus on the scope of your charging project with owners, managers and residents
Choose a qualified contractor to install the equipment and coordinate an onsite evaluation
Install the equipment and spread the news that you live in a community that supports electric vehicles
