  • Consider changes to state statutes and administrative code to support EV charger deployment at multifamily housing;
  • Identify best practices for EV charger installations at multifamily housing;
  • Create guidelines for EV chargers in multifamily housing;
  • Develop solutions for EV charging cost recovery and electrical capacity management; and,
  • Develop recommendations for installing shared-use EV chargers at multifamily housing.
