Charging Policy for the Installation of Electric Vehicle (EV) Charging Stations at [write the address of the complex]

Procedure

Procedure to be followed by unit owners to install an EV charger in their parking space(s):

  1. Communicate with the board in writing with the desire to install an EV charger at a designated parking space(s)
  2. Use the electrical contractor approved by the Board in order to obtain a quote
  3. Have the quote approved by the board
  4. Ask the electrical contractor to complete the work

Authorization

The managing board has full authority over the approval procedures, the installation process and the management of inquiries relating to EV chargers in the building.

Compliance Requirements

The installation of the EV charger and its electricity supply must be carried out by a registered electrician. The following entrepreneur, approved by the board, holds the necessary permits: [Enter the information of the authorized electrical contractor]

Charging Solution

Accessible Electricity Meters

For units with accessible electricity meters, the charging station must be installed directly on the branch (cable) that supplies power to the unit so that the electricity required to charge the electric vehicle appropriately billed directly to its owner. In order not to overload the existing building electrical infrastructure, an energy management system (such as the DCC-9 https://dccelectric.com/dcc-9, or equivalent) must be installed for each unit.

Inaccessible Electricity Meters

For units where the electricity meters are inaccessible, the charging station must be powered by a new electricity meter. With this approach the electricity required to recharge the EV will be newly billed by the electricity distributor/utility. The unit owner will therefore receive two invoices from the electricity distributor: one from the consumption of their unit, and one for the consumption of their electric vehicle.

Electrical Power

The maximum power of the terminal (circuit breaker) must be 240 volts, 40 amps.
