Installation of Electric Vehicle Charging Stations on Strata Properties in British Columbia

CHOAr-smcovThe project and guide was initiated by the Condominium Home Owners’ Association of BC (CHOA) with the partnership and support of the Ministry of Energy and Mines, for the purpose of identifying the options and procedures for strata corporations,
and strata lot owners, who are installing an Electric Vehicle Charging Station (EVCS) on common property and within a strata lot.

Part 1 of this guide will explore the various aspects a strata corporation needs to consider regarding the installation of an EVCS in either a new or existing multi-family strata corporation. Legislative restrictions, opportunities, and frameworks are examined, such as property variables created under the Strata Property Act (SPA) and Regulations, the unique current and historic property allocations, designations and limitations created by the registered strata plan, easements and covenants and the bylaws of each strata corporation.

Part 2 provides an overview of the technical requirements for electric vehicle charging in strata
titled properties. It provides a general overview of charging technology, an outline of installation
costs and requirements, and operational costs.
