EV drivers do indeed expect to pay for the electricity consumed in charging their vehicles at their residences, especially since the cost is usually in the $28 to $35 range per month, far less than gasoline.
Most Multi-Unit Residential Buildings (MURBs) charge EV owners for the electricity consumed, most conveniently as a flat rate supplement to the monthly rent or maintenance charge.
Richmond now requires a 220V outlet at each parking space for new construction.
Landlords and strata councils of existing MURBs should read the writing on the wall and install as many 220V outlets as possible now while the provincial government is providing generous financial incentives.
There are full details on our website, which you can find if you search “Plug-in Richmond” on Google.
The Ford Mustang Mach-E and Tesla vehicles, referred to in the article, have charging circuitry built into them that enables them to plug directly into a 220V outlet and allows them to recharge in a couple of hours rather than spending most of the day plugged into the 110V outlets that are in dispute now.
