The EV boom has posed a challenge to older facilities and properties. When installing EV charging infrastructure, the charging stations need to be accessible to an electrical source that can handle that much power meanwhile still be in a spot where the parked car can reach it. Commercial properties like office buildings and multi-family dwellings, and single-family homes have noticed this roadblock.

Installing EV charging stations can require electrical upgrades to the buildings in order to handle powering an EV charging station, which can be costly. During the installation process, project managers and property owners should work with the utility provider to not only see how much electricity is needed but also apply for any rebates and financial incentives that can offset the cost of the additional electricity and installation.

Facilities like MUDs face parking dilemmas where adding EV charging stations can take away from what may already be limited parking for residents. During the planning process, project managers should have meeting with residents to decide how many parking spots are necessary and where they should go. Other considerations for parking could include parking passes, timed parking, or designated parking spots for EVs. Creating a parking plan for residents or employees of an office building to follow will take away all of the worry around parking access.
