Following the purchase of their electric vehicles, two tenants reached out to their condo board for Level 2 EV charging. Leveraging these requests, the condominium board used Murbly’s tools to set up a charging strategy for the 53-unit-building in the Mile End that was once a high school.
The Mile End building has both interior and exterior parking stalls. As the interior parking spaces are close to the electrical room, the use of electric vehicle energy management systems was chosen to power the Level 2 chargers.
The work required to install charging at the exterior parking spaces is significant and costly (due to excavation, installation of bollards, pedestals, and labour), the board decided to avoid additional expenses and focus first on the interior parking spaces.
Wishing to apply a user-pay principle, the board selected an individual installation approach.
A charging policy was put in place in order to standardize and facilitate all installations.
Thanks to the addition of this policy, the two requesting tenants were able to have EV chargers installed at their parking space.
Moving forward, tenants wishing to add Level 2 charging infrastructure can follow the details in the charging policy established by their complex.
