Recently, Electric Autonomy Canada hosted a webinar that brought experts together for a discussion around EV charging station installation at multi-unit residential properties, condominiums and businesses.
Although EV charging stations should always be installed by a licensed electrician, the installation at shared environments is much more involved and requires a more extensive planning process. Several factors that impact an entire community must be considered, including the amount and type of panels needed, location, spacing, connectivity, electrical usage, payment plans, and backend software.
The speakers address why property managers, condominium boards and business owners should obtain advice and installation services from a licensed electrical contractor with EV experience. They also explore government incentives, safety and insurance considerations.
For important insights and cost-saving tips to get your Ontario building EV ready, view the Path to Successfully Installing Chargers Into Multi-Unit Residential Buildings webinar and read the accompanying Electric Autonomy Canada article.
