EV Charger Installation For Commercial and Residential Property Managers
For a property manager to install EV chargers on a commercial property, it primarily involves planning and coordination. Initially, they must assess the need and feasibility for EV chargers on the property, taking into account factors like existing electrical infrastructure, the expected demand for EV charging, and available space for charger installation. This is often followed by consultation with an electrical contractor to figure out the most suitable EV charging stations for the property. IMS is knowledgeable on the types of charging stations on the market and offers a non-biased opinion for what station makes the most sense for your property and intended use. The property manager also needs to understand and comply with local building codes and permits related to EV charger installation. IMS will help you maneuver through the process to ensure that the stations are built in accordance with local city building codes. Budget allocation is another crucial aspect, considering both the upfront costs of the chargers and installation, as well as ongoing costs for maintenance, electricity, and potential upgrades. IMS will help you understand what these charges will look like now and moving forward.
Installing EV chargers on an HOA residential property involves a process similar to that of commercial properties but with additional considerations. The HOA Board needs to first assess the demand for EV charging among residents and the suitability of communal areas for charger installation. It’s important for the HOA board to gain approval for the project and to address any concerns residents may have, IMS can help you furnish the plans to present for approval. Budgeting for the chargers, installation, ongoing electricity costs, and maintenance is a critical part of the planning process and IMS can help illuminate for you what some of those figures will look like moving forward. The property manager also needs to ensure that the installation complies with local building codes and regulations, and since IMS specializes in installing EV chargers in the Bay Area we are abundantly familiar with local city codes and building codes when it comes to planning and installing charging stations. Once the chargers are installed, a system for usage – which could include scheduling, fees, and troubleshooting – needs to be implemented and communicated clearly to residents. Regular maintenance and potential future upgrades should also be planned to ensure the long-term success of the project.
California Law also allows each resident of a multi-family unit property the ability to install an EV charger for their vehicle. HOA boards and property managers need to provide a community wide plan that makes sense for all residents and is forward looking to ensure the infrastructure plans are designed to accommodate charging systems that make sense not just for the individual resident but for the community as a whole.
