Networked electric vehicle charging stations for strata housing

Condo or townhouse stratas can use the same types of electric vehicle (EV) charging equipment as detached single family dwellings, but they should consider installing networked charging stations.

Benefits of networked charging stations

Networked stations can provide some or all of the following:

  • remote monitoring and updating
  • charge station reports
  • user access controls
  • mobile app integration
  • payment collection
  • online reservation systems

Factors to consider for EV charging at strata housing

To determine the viability and cost of installing EV charging for your strata, you’ll need to know:

  • your building's wiring capacity to supply the Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment (EVSE) and related electrical load
  • your building's total electrical loading, related to transformer capacity
  • the account billing rate class (which rate you'll be charged)
  • charging system voltage compatibility
