Electric Vehicle (EV) Charging Station Policies for Rental Properties

The tenant of a commercial space may apply to install EV charging stations for the use of the tenant, employees of the tenant, and customers of the tenant. Unless the premises does not have at least one parking space per rental unit, the landlord must approve a completed application no more than 60 days after the tenant submits the application. In the absence of a different tenant-landlord agreement, the EV charging stations will be personal property of the tenant and the tenant is responsible for all costs associated with installation and use of the EV charging station. The tenant is responsible for maintaining a renter’s liability insurance policy of at least $100,000. Upon the termination of the rental agreement, the landlord may require the tenant to remove the charging station and restore the premises. Additional requirements and restrictions apply.
