Electric Vehicle (EV) Charging Station Policies for Renters

Beginning January 1, 2024, a tenant may install a Level 1 or Level 2 EV charging station at a parking space allotted for the lessee. Landlords may require reimbursement for EV charging station electricity consumption, charge a fee for access if a networked EV charging station, and charge a security deposit to cover the cost of restoring the property to its original condition if the tenant removes the EV charging station. The landlord may also require reimbursement for any wiring or electrical upgrades necessary to support the EV charging station. Renters must comply with applicable health and safety codes and architectural standards, engage a licensed installation contractor, and provide a certificate of insurance. Additional requirements apply.
