Electric Vehicle (EV) Charging Station Policies for Associations

Homeowner associations or condominium associations may not prohibit or restrict the installation or use of an EV charging station in a homeowner’s designated parking space. Associations may put reasonable restrictions on EV charging stations, but the association must treat EV charging station installation in the same manner as any unit architectural modification. Residents are required to comply with all relevant building codes and safety standards and engage a licensed EV charging station contractor. The residential EV charging station owner is responsible for the cost of the installation, operation, maintenance, repair, insurance, removal, or replacement of the station, as well as any resulting damage to the EV charging station or surrounding area.
