Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
Can I get an electric vehicle charger installed at a condo/apartment?
Although it is possible, the process of getting an electric vehicle charger installed at a condo or apartment (especially if it’s rented) compared to a single-family home is more complicated. Like with all work done in a condo or apartment, having an electric vehicle charger installed will require the proper permissions, reviewing of building rules and codes, and written agreements.
What are some considerations to make before installation?
Most electric vehicles that have built-in navigation (like Google Maps) can help to find electric vehicle chargers on the go. One key factor in successfully owning an electric vehicle is knowing where and when to charge. With an electric vehicle charger at home, the stress of having to plan this out is significantly reduced, but for regular trips (such as to and from work), it is also important to consider your options in case of an emergency.
What is the cost of installation?
The cost of having an electric vehicle charger has gone dramatically in the past few years, especially with government-backed incentives. However, the cost is still highly variable and depends on the set-up of your garage or parkway. For more simple set-ups that only require a connection from the electrical panel to the new charging station, installation will likely be pretty affordable since it will require less time and resources. Typically, the cost of installation ranges from a few hundred to a few thousand.
