Vermont Apartment Buildings Gain EV Charger Access

March 7, 2022

A new program provided by the electric utility of Burlington, Vermont is going to assist renters with more access to EV charging stations. The program initially started in 2019 to give incentives to apartment complexes to install EV charging stations and make them available to the public. The incentive can cover up to 75% of each charging station that the building managers are capable of installing to their facility. The charging software EVmatch, is easily accessed through smartphones to reserve and pay for their charging.

The electric utility company, Burlington Electric, learned that 60% of their customers live in multifamily residencies and wanted to ensure that they also had access to electric charging stations should they want to drive an electric vehicle. When they first began expanding the EV network, they helped installing 14 EV charging stations to various apartment and condominium complexes. They had public access during the daytime hours and gave building managers the ability to adjust the charging prices.

Facility owners are grateful for the financial incentives to help with the EV charger costs. Most of whom would not have had the means to install the chargers for their tenants without it. Even though some tenants do not have electric vehicles, it is a great way to assist the community and attract potential tenants to their complex.
