Thanks for the help with the previous question regarding engaging my SoCal Condo association to impliment a charging infrastructure
This is a brief clip of what the HOA manager said:
We are looking at four 16amp outlets. Anything above 20 would require us to change out the infrastructure in the electrical room
First quote was for $14,000 for four 16 amp charging stations. I'd imagine each EV owner would pay $3,500
Electric Vehicle Charging
In accordance with Civil Code §1353.9 and SB 209, the Association has adopted the following guidelines for the charging of electric vehicles (EV) in the garage.
1. The assignee of the parking space shall submit an architectural application to the Association requesting the installation of an electrical outlet near the assignee’s parking space.
2. If an electrical outlet is not readily available next to the assignee’s parking space, one will need to be installed at the Owner’s expenses, taking into account rebates and incentives offered by SDG&E.
3. The assignee of the parking will be responsible for usage of the common area electricity. A flat fee of $75 per month will be assessed for a Level 1 EV (110 volts) and $100 per month for a Level 2 EV (220 volts). This fee will be subject to change at anytime with the intent to ensure equitable fairness to both the Owner and the Association.
4. Relocation to a parking space with a charging station and or electrical outlet is subject to change at anytime in accordance with the established parking guidelines.
5. These rules apply to residential use only. Commercially owned vehicles are not permitted to be charged.
Now I have even more questions:
1) I would like to assist them with indvidual metering as all outlets are coming off the main breaker like they mentioned. Can the EV TOU integrate into a multi-unit condo?
2) Is it possible to use a 16amp 220v outlet or will electric cars not be able to handle this? They have adapters for specific standards like 12/24/40+ amps. Not 16
