While residential EV chargers are the most common and convenient option, many Canadians live in multi-unit residential buildings, such as condos and apartments, where there are few if any EV chargers either in the building’s parking area or nearby.
This guide from the Pembina Institute presents expedient ways to install chargers for electric vehicles and find efficiencies to help make the process smoother in existing residential buildings and new builds. Not only does charging infrastructure increase the value of the building to residents, it also boosts a building’s market value. With the rapid transition from gas-fueled to hybrids and all-electric cars, this guide offers resources and advice for property owners/managers and condo boards on how to prepare for an EV future.
This project was funded in 2022 through the Foundation’s Investment Grant Program to explore the impact of emerging technology infrastructure on real estate.
