Video: Electric Vehicle (EV) Charging Stations in Condos — Everything You Need to Know in 20 Minutes

With the increasing prominence of electric vehicles (EVs) on the road, property managers are now facing pressure to accommodate residents who own such vehicles. To help reduce any confusion and stress, we hosted a Breakfast and Learn at Ryerson University on June 21st, 2018, alongside our good friends at Minute Solutions, to address the topic of EV charging station installation in condominium buildings.

In the first 20 minutes of the video, SWTCH and Pacific Light & Energy, two experts in the EV industry, provide their insight on everything EV-related and tackle common issues. The remaining 30 minutes is used as a Q&A period, where SWTCH and Pacific Light & Energy answer important questions that are associated with EV charging stations.

Some key points addressed in the video include:

  • Costs associated with charging station installation (who pays?)
  • Differences between shared charging stations vs. deeded (individual resident) stations
  • Concerns around old buildings vs. new buildings when installing EV charging stations
  • The amended Condo Act’s role in making it easier to install EV charging stations

Whether you are currently in the process of installing EV charging stations in your building, or are just interested in learning more about the process, this video will definitely help to provide some clarity and direction.
