In the coming years, many of your homeowner association members will purchase plug-in vehicles, and they will need a way to charge their vehicles at home. Now is time for a homeowner association to start preparing and identifying the most suitable solutions their members. 
​​The ideal situation for a multi-housing occupant would be a charging station by a dedicated parking spot at or nearby their building. This might not be possible in every case, but it is worth looking into all options and seeing if you can find a way to get a satisfactory charging setup. There really aren’t any silver bullet solutions for multi housing charging (MHC)—instead, every system has to be designed on a case-by-case basis, looking at the vehicle owner’s needs and the property limitations, whether physical or legal. The good news is that this doesn't necessarily mean big investments and high usage fees, but finding the right solutions might require a bit of legwork.
