One of the best recommendations for condominiums is to have an EV Management Policy. In this video we get to the bottom of what goes into a policy and why it matters.
EV management policies can speak to charging stations, transformers, metering, safety, and providing fair-value for both the corporation and condo owners.
“Sometimes the policy is written and the people believe it’s for the EV owners. It’s for everyone. So as they’re communicating to the perspective EV owners as to how they’re going to be dealt with from the corporation in a fair way, it’s also communication to all the rest of the people that may be looking at EVs, may not have an EV, may not ever want to get an EV, but they need to know – oh yes, now we can see that they’re going to be paying for their own electricity. I’m not subsidizing that. It really makes it a lot easier.”

When EV charging is available for residents in a shared facility then it becomes an amenity for the entire building. Having a policy in place also helps to reduce any arguments that may arise.
“If I don’t have an EV, but maybe the person coming to buy my unit does. And the fact that they can be accommodated at One Bedford or any other building, that’s the advantage, that’s the amnetity piece that we were talking about. So it’s adding value for everybody, whether they have a car or not.”
