The Role of EV Charging Stations in Multifamily Communities


About 1.6 million Electric Vehicles (EVs) were sold in the U.S. in 2023 — a 60% increase from the 1 million sold nationwide in 2022. With regulations in certain cities quickly shifting in favor of EVs. For example, all new automobiles and light trucks sold in California will be required to be zero-emission by 2035. The race is on for developers and housing complexes to offer charging stations to the growing number of tenants who seek them. Studies suggest that over 80% of EV charging happens at home – therefore, it is crucial for multifamily complexes to offer this service to residents.
