Electric Vehicle (EV) Charging Station Policies for Multi-Unit Dwellings

A housing association (Association) may not prohibit the installation of a Level 1 or Level 2 EV charging station for personal use within the EV charging station owner’s designated parking space or a parking space accessible to other tenants. In addition, an Association may not assess or charge an EV charging station owner any fee for the placement or use of an EV charging station in the owner’s unit, except for the cost of electricity. Tenants must comply with safety requirements, registration agreements, and reasonable aesthetic provisions. The unit owner must agree to comply with design specifications, hire a licensed and registered electrical contractor, pay for installation and maintenance costs, and obtain appropriate insurance for the charging station.
