Your Situation: Based on the answers you provided, it appears that you do not have access charging for your EV, and cannot arrange for a new installation at your residence. If this is not the case, consider starting over and reassessing some of your answers. While you may have access to away-from-home charging (such as workplace or publicly accessible stations), a residence is the only location where most EV drivers can reliably charge their vehicle on a daily basis. If you have not done so already, you may want to speak with the management of your residence about providing EV charging installation.

Learn About Your Next Steps to EV Charging:

  • If you are considering an EV in a residence without charging infrastructure, we recommend evaluating alternative away-from-home charging options reliably available to you. You may also want to consider which type of EV is most suited to your driving needs and charging options.
