As the number of electric vehicles (EVs) continues to increase year on year more and more condo associations are fielding requests from condo owners to install charging stations. While it might seem like a straightforward request that would elicit a straightforward (and positive) response it turns out it’s not that simple because many condo board members are simply not familiar with the technology or what’s involved in a condo EV Charging Station installation. At EVdirect we encounter this type of situation on an almost daily basis and find that nothing breaks down resistance like a few facts and a clear presentation of the benefits.
Why Condo EV Charging Station Installation is a Good Idea?
The decision to proceed with the installation of EV Charging Stations in a multi-unit condo development is a good idea on many levels and will provide both immediate and long term benefits, including:
- Attracting high-value, environmentally conscious residents.
- Enhance the profile of the development from a marketing perspective.
- Bring the development into step with the government’s “green” initiatives.
- Encourage environmental responsibility among the resident population.
- Increase property values with minimal investment.
- Future proof the development.
Electric vehicles represent an ever increasing percentage of vehicles sold every year in Ontario and it’s estimated that within 3 years there will be nearly 20 million of them on the roads of the developed world. EV owners are typically affluent, responsible consumers who make up an ever larger percentage of condo buyers with every passing year. And they want to charge their EV where they live. If a particular condo development does not offer them the ability to do so, they will find one that will. So getting on the condo EV Charging Station installation bandwagon today only makes sense from both practical and marketing perspectives.

Convenience and Affordability for EV Charging Station Installation in Ontario
Those who hesitate to purchase an EV often do so because they believe they’re more expensive to run than a gas-powered vehicle. These people are often startled to discover that gas-powered cars cost about 3 times as much to run as electric powered cars, given the current average prices of gasoline and electricity. Many condo association members make similarly incomplete or incorrect assumptions about installing EV Charging Station: in this case that the cost will have to be shouldered by all the owners and that the technology is hopelessly complex. But neither is true.
