Add Park Appeal with Charging Stations

Thinking about installing electric vehicle (EV) charging stations to the parking area of your multi-unit dwelling (MUD)? Adding EV charging can give your property greater appeal and help attract and retain an increasing number of Californians who are enjoying the benefits of Transportation Electrification (TE).

After you’ve reviewed the information on this site, please contact your Account Manager or call 1-800-990-7788 to discuss TE for your business.

 

Benefits that Make Your Residents Feel Right at Home

Whether you’re a property owner, property manager, or a builder, you probably want to create a comfortable living environment for your residents. These days, many current and potential residents may want to drive EVs. Offering charging stations may improve resident satisfaction. In addition, upgrading your parking spaces can help reach sustainability goals and lower smog and greenhouse gasses. Plus, you can obtain important green building certification, such as Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED), to showcase your commitment to sustainability.

An important step in understanding how charging works is to get familiar with the different types of EVs available. Take a moment to learn more, so you can provide a parking experience that can keep residents satisfied.

Plug-In Hybrid

A Plug-In Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) has both an electric motor connected to a battery and an internal combustion engine. To charge its battery, residents can plug it into a standard electrical outlet or a charging station. PHEVs use the energy stored in the battery to run, but they can travel many more miles on gas, with a much higher fuel efficiency than most conventional vehicles.

Battery Electric Vehicle

A Battery Electric Vehicle (BEV) is 100% powered by electricity. With no reliance on gasoline, BEVs emit no pollutants, and drivers never need to pull into a gas station. BEVs typically have a driving range between 80 and 250 miles, which makes them ideal for short trips and most daily commutes.

Transportation Electrification Advisory Services Overview

We currently offer several services to help you adopt and make the most of transportation electrification. We provide comprehensive resources for the information and support your business needs throughout its transition to EVs—and down the road.

Pull in for Charging and Installation Details

There are three charging levels—or voltages—you can provide for residents who drive EVs. The higher the voltage, the faster the charge—but higher voltage levels often require a greater investment in equipment and wiring upgrades. Find more details about charging stations and their deployment in MUDs.

If you would like to discuss EV charging in more detail, please contact your Account Manager or call 1-800-990-7788.

Test Drive Our Decision Tool

To learn about the EV charging and installation options available, take our easy-to-use Multi-Unit Dwelling Decision Tool for a spin. Whether you’re a building owner, property manager, or HOA representative, the tool will give you customized results based on your answers.

Gauge Interest with Our MUD EV Survey

To help you assess the interest in EV charging at your property, we have developed a questionnaire you can use to survey residents. The survey results can also help you use our Charge Port Estimator to determine the number of charging stations you may want to deploy.

The allowable EV for this plan cannot exceed 20 kilowatts (kW). The TOU-EV-3 rate is a separately-metered rate, so be sure to let your installer know you’ll require a second meter when you request a quote. Get the details and review the chart below.
