New Guide for Charging Stations in Multi-Unit Residential Buildings

January 12, 2021

Plug In BC is pleased to present a new guide for the selection, installation and maintenance of electric vehicle supply equipment (EVSE) in Multi-Unit Residential Buildings (MURBs). It provides a step-by-step template to the process of making Electric Vehicle charging widely and easily available.

EV uptake is growing rapidly, particularly among the increasing number of individuals and families living in MURBs, and with that growth is the need for EV charging. The majority of charging occurs at home, so access to “at home” charging is a critical factor determining whether households will purchase an EV. Retrofitting an existing MURB for EV charging presents unique challenges, so this guide aims to assist strata in navigating the process of installing EV chargers efficiently and effectively.

This information is for building owners, managers, and operators of multi unit residential buildings and mixed-use commercial/ residential buildings (MURBs), to support this important, ongoing transition to clean energy vehicles. It has been developed by the Fraser Basin Council, in partnership with the province of British Columbia’s CleanBC Go Electric Program, and in consultation with industry experts, to provide the most reliable and relevant information.
