The time is right for electrical cars. In fact, the time is critical.Carlos Ghosn, former Nissan CEO
The Condo Board
The EV Car market in Toronto is in its infancy when compared to other major cities around the world. A huge obstacle that every property manager or condo owner faces is getting approval from the board of directors or condo board. A reoccurring attitude toward the installation of EV chargers in Condos is the board’s skepticism, the costs involved, and also a lack of understanding of how EV Charger solutions will benefit their building.
Support of fellow condo owners
Individual Condo Owners often face a hurdle and that is getting the board’s approval. The board sometimes claims that such installation of new technology will infringe on the rights of others. However, condo owners that can form a group with other residents wishing to have EV Charging solutions have a better chance of getting boards’ approval. The condo board can easily dismiss a condo owner, but when it is a group, it is much more difficult for them to do so.
The cost of an EV charging solution in condominiums isn’t an easily calculated quote. Many things must be taken into consideration in order to get a quote, such as the type of chargers, number of parking spaces to install the chargers, the current electrical capacity of the building, condo board installation restrictions, and the cost recovery options.
