Following the success of the charger installation project for the first group at this condo in December 2019, The Victoria’s board wished to initiate a second round of installations. See the details of the installation and how this building electrified their parking spaces.
How to Add EV Charging in a Condo
The charging solution (an Electric Vehicle Energy Management System, the technology) and the installation approach (Partial Global Approach, the how) determined by the charging strategy in place and a charging policy set up for the first installation group, organizing the second one proved to be more straightforward and simple. The tenants were contacted in April 2020 to assess their interest to take part of this group: four unit owners came forward.
EV Charging Installation
The board then mandated the electrical contractor who had done the work for the first round of installations for a quote, which was approved by the tenants.
Four Flo G5 chargers were installed in June 2020. The workload was considerably reduced, thanks to the implementations done the first time around, which are the wall added for the Electric Vehicle Energy Management Systems (EVEMS) and the cantrust allowing the piping to be installed the garage.
