OPCONNECT OFFERS TWO OPTIONS FOR MULTI-UNIT DWELLINGS
90% of charging happens where we live because it’s usually the most convenient place to charge.
Option 1 – Chargers Shared by the Entire Multi-Unit Community
This option is best for apartments. Here’s how OpConnect works with you to set up shared charging for your multi-unit property:
Option 2 – Tenants Own Their Own Charger in Their Own Parking Space
This option is best for condos. Parking spaces are often deeded or assigned to individual condo owners and there is usually little or no shared parking spaces to dedicate for EV charging only, so why not let the individual owners have their own charger in their own parking space.
OpConnect’s program is a planned and scalable system that protects the electrical system in your building. All of the chargers are energy managed to ensure that the load from the EV charging in your building does not exceed the available power and cause breaker trips and costly electrician visits. If individual owners or tenants are allowed to install whatever charger they want you need to meter each charger, possible collect revenue from each person and risk problems with the building’s electrical system.
‘In the past month I’ve given two tours to tenants that said they loved the place, but they can’t live here because we don’t have chargers for their EV. It made me ask myself – It’s 2019 and I don’t have EV chargers. What am I doing? ’ – Property Management, The Beverly
