EV Charging At Apartments & Condos To Increase With New ChargePoint Solution

The company behind one of the largest electric vehicle (EV) charging networks in the world, ChargePoint, will now be offering a new service program designed specifically for those living in apartments and condos, according to a press release sent to CleanTechnica.

Given the common issues with regard to EV charging for those living in apartments or condos, the new program is certainly quite welcome — and can potentially go a long way toward improving the EV owning/leasing experience of those living in such places.

ChargePoint

“ChargePoint is a trusted network with the most expansive collection of publicly available stations in North America and the largest community of drivers. Now, drivers living in apartments and condos will have access to the same network they use at work and around town with a personal charging station at their individual parking spot,” stated ChargePoint CEO Pasquale Romano. “With no long-term commitment, 24/7 support, and a charging station provided to the resident at no cost, we’re making it even easier for property owners to offer EV charging.”

Property managers that choose to participate will be responsible for prepping the individual parking spots with appropriate wiring, as well as setting a price for electricity. ChargePoint will then bill the resident a one-time activation fee and a continuing monthly subscription fee for EV charging services for as long as the resident uses it. As there are no long-term contracts involved, everything is done on a month-to-month basis. When a resident moves out, the charging station will simply be deactivated until a new resident subscribes.


 

As part of the new program, the users of the service will be able to pay the property owner of their apartment/condo for electricity usage through their ChargePoint account — rather than through separate means.

“Electric vehicles are here to stay and gaining in popularity. The competitive nature of the multi-family industry lends itself to adapting to consumer needs and allowing EV owners access to charging in the apartment environment seems a natural evolution. EV owners represent high quality residents and facilitating EV use helps us with our sustainability goals. It’s a win-win scenario,” stated Rod Standard Development Director at Sobrato. “The ChargePoint Multi-family Home Service has given us an affordable and scalable program to offer a top-of-the-line-amenity to our residents.”

Sobrato has been partnered with ChargePoint customer for over 4 years now, with EV charging stations now located at 8 of its differet property locations.
