MULTI-UNIT DWELLINGS

Power Up Your Community: Convenient & Sustainable EV Charging for MUDs

Installing electric vehicle (EV) charging stations in a multi-unit dwelling, such as an apartment complex or condominium building, can provide several benefits, including:

  • Increased property value: Installing EV charging infrastructure can increase the value of a multi-unit dwelling, as it demonstrates a commitment to sustainability and meets the growing demand for EV charging options.

  • Attract and retain tenants: Providing access to EV charging stations can be a valuable amenity for residents and can help attract and retain tenants who own EVs.

  • Revenue opportunities: Multi-unit dwellings can generate additional revenue by offering paid EV charging services to tenants or to the public.

  • Reduced emissions: By enabling EV owners to charge their vehicles at home, multi-unit dwellings can help reduce emissions from transportation and contribute to a more sustainable community. 

 

Overall, installing EV charging stations in a multi-unit dwelling can be a smart investment that provides multiple benefits, including increased property value, enhanced amenities, and new revenue opportunities.

 WHAT TO EXPECT: EV CHARGING INSTALLATIONS AT MULTI-UNIT DWELLINGS

Installing electric vehicle (EV) charging stations at a Multi-Unit Dwelling (MUD) can be a complex process, but with careful planning and COIL’s EV Charging Experts, it can be completed efficiently and effectively. Here is a general overview of the installation process:

1. Planning and Assessment

Before installation, the property should be assessed to determine the most appropriate location for the charging stations and to determine the electrical capacity of the building. This will help ensure that the installation process runs smoothly and that the charging stations are properly integrated into the building's electrical system.

2. Obtaining Permits and Approvals

Before installation can begin, it is important to obtain all necessary permits and approvals from local authorities. This will typically include electrical permits, building permits, and approvals from the local utility company.

3. Installing Electrical Infrastructure

Once the necessary permits and approvals are in place, the electrical infrastructure for the charging stations can be installed (if necessary upgrades are needed). This will typically involve upgrading the electrical service to the building, installing new electrical panels, and running new electrical circuits to the charging station locations.

4. Installing Charging Stations

Once the electrical infrastructure is in place, the charging stations themselves can be installed. This will typically involve mounting the charging stations on the wall or on a stand, connecting them to the electrical infrastructure, and programming them to ensure that they function properly.

5. Testing and Commissioning:

After installation is complete, the charging stations should be thoroughly tested to ensure that they are working properly and that they meet all safety and performance standards.

With COIL’s seamless end-to-end solutions, the installation of EV charging stations at a Multi-Unit Dwelling can be completed efficiently and effectively, providing residents with a convenient and reliable source of charging for their electric vehicles. It is important to work with experienced professionals who have a strong understanding of the electrical, building, and safety codes that apply to EV charging station installations.
