By 2040, electric vehicle (EV) adoption is expected to encompass over 30 percent of all vehicles. However, the lack of access to EV charging is one of the top barriers to adoption, especially for those in multi-unit dwellings, most of whom do not have the ability to charge their car at home.

According to the Census, approximately 18% of the population in the Metroplex live in multi-unit dwellings, with most residents forced to rely on workplace or public charging stations elsewhere to charge their vehicles. To provide for a growing need for tenants, property owners should explore installing electric vehicle charging stations.

  • Attract Residents: New residents are placing higher importance on sustainable amenities in their apartment homes.

  • Stay Sustainable:  Increase LEED certification rating and property “resilience”, possibly leading to lower insurance rates and higher property values.

  • Stay Ahead: EV sales are growing rapidly and one of the largest areas of expansion is amongst renters.

  • Rebates for EV charging stations can dramatically cut costs: There are a mix of federal, state, utility, and local EVSE (EV Supply Equipment) incentives.
