ABOUT PLUG’N DRIVEPlug’n Drive is a non-profit organization committed toaccelerating the adoption of electric vehicles in order tomaximize their environmental and economic benefits.Since 2011, Plug’n Drive has established itself as aleader in the electric vehicle industry, a trusted andunbiased source of information on electric cars, chargingstations and the electricity sector.ELECTRIC VEHICLE DISCOVERY CENTREThe Electric Vehicle Discovery Centre is the first facilityof its kind in the world dedicated to providing anexperiential learning environment for electric vehicles.At the EV Discovery Centre, visitors can discoverthe environmental and economic benefits of electrictransportation, learn about charging and take testdrives in the latest EV makes and models from leadingmanufacturers in a sales-free no-pressure environment.Visit the EV Discovery Centre or for moreinformation.Plug’n Drive’s staff, Board of Directors andSponsors at the May 2017 official ribboncutting ceremony for the Electric VehicleDiscovery Centre.2Plug’n DriveWHEN ITCOMESTO EVS,WE’REHERE TOHELP.AT THE WORLD’S FIRST Electric Vehicle Discovery Centre we frequently getcondominium-related calls about electric vehicles (EVs). Condo owners, managersand boards have plenty of questions and want to make sure they do the right thingwhen it comes to EVs. That’s why, with the help of the Province of Ontario and oursponsors, we decided to update our much-used EV charging in condominiums guide.It turns out that our timing couldn’t have been better. Ontario recently made regulatorychanges that make it easier for condominium owners and boards to install EV chargingequipment. In this updated guide, we provide background, tips and answers to some of themost common questions we receive, all updated to take Ontario’s new regulatory changesinto account.We’d like to thank the Province of Ontario, Ontario Power Generation, the Power Workers’Union and TD for their invaluable financial contributions and all the consultation participantswho shared their stories and ideas to support the development of this guide (see page 20).Plug’n Drive takes sole responsibility for the content of this report and the content in no wayreflects the positions or views of our sponsors or consultation participants. We’d also like tothank Travis Allan and DeMarco Allan LLP for their valuable contributions to this guide.As always, we hope you’ll come visit us at the EV Discovery Centre, located at 1126 FinchAvenue West, North York. When it comes to EVs, our friendly staff is here to help answeryour questions and provide test drives in a wide range of EVs. We know that after a visitwith us, you’ll be ready to make the switch.Cara Clairman, President and CEO of Plug’n DriveMake Your Condo EV Ready: 2018 Guide for Condo Owners, Boards and Managers3

ELECTRICVEHICLESTYPES OF ELECTRIC VEHICLESFully Electric Vehicles, also called Battery Electric Vehicles orBEVs, are powered 100% by electricity and have zero tailpipeemissions.ONLINERESOURCESPlug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles, also called PHEVs, havesmaller battery packs for driving shorter distances (20-80 km)before a gasoline engine or generator turns on for longer trips.Plug-in hybrids differ from gasoline and diesel hybrids becausethey provide dedicated all-electric (and low-emission) driving.If this is your first time taking a look at EVs, or if you haven’tchecked out available models in a couple of years, we suggestyou take a look at Plug’n Drive’s updated list of EV modelsavailable in Canada and the Ministry of Transportation’s(MTO) list of eligible electric and hydrogen vehicles. You canfind a make and model that fits almost any budget, and ourhardworking staff keeps our site updated so you can shopinformed. If you see one you’d like to try, give us a call—wehave a wide range of vehicles in our test drive zone at theEV Discovery Centre.INCENTIVESEV sales in Ontario aregrowing at an astounding rateas consumers discover theconvenience and cost benefitsof charging their EVs at home.BY PLUGGING INTO LOW COST ELECTRICITY at night, owners avoid having towait at gas stations for unpredictable fuel prices. Recent data collected byFleetCarma, an Ontario leader in EV technology, show sales in Ontario haverisen dramatically over the past five years (Figure 1). These sales suggest thatOntario is well on the way to achieving its target of 5% of new passenger carsales being EVs by 2020, as set out in Ontario’s Climate Change Action Plan.FIGURE 1:Plug’n Drive – Ontario's 2017 EV Sales32,378PROJECTEDONTARIO-WIDE EV SALESHISTORIC and PROJECTED19,864PROJECTEDCumulative EV Salesin Ontario 16,64412,187PROJECTED(Canada: 47,788)ONTARIO’SGOAL14,1617,4775% OF ALLNEW VEHICLESSOLD BY 01820192020ASSUMES NAVIGANT RESEARCH PROJECTION63% INCREASE PER YEARNote that these figures represent all fully electric and plug-in hybrid electric sales.

EVCHARGINGElectric cars have battery packsthat recharge by plugging intothe electricity grid. Chargingis simple, convenient andaffordable.You can recharge using asimple wall socket or by usinga charging station, also knownas Electric Vehicle SupplyEquipment (EVSE). The time ittakes to fully charge is based onthe level, or speed, of chargingand how full the battery is.LEVEL 1: ONE HOUR OF CHARGE GIVES 8 KM OF RANGEAll electric vehicles come standard with a cord-set that plugs into a regularwall socket. This is the slowest speed of charging, but ensures that no matterwhere you are, you can always recharge. Be careful though, not all wall socketsare designed for long-term EV charging—make sure to consult an electricalcontractor if you are hoping to use an outlet for regular charging.LEVEL 2: ONE HOUR OF CHARGE GIVES 30 KM OF RANGEThe most common level of charging. Level 2 stations have similar electricalrequirements to a stove or clothes dryer. Most EV drivers install a Level 2station at home and many businesses install them for employees and/orcustomers. A Level 2 station will fully charge your EV overnight. All EVs sold inNorth America, (with the exception of Tesla), use the same charging standard(called J1772). That means that any car can use most stations across Canadaand the United States. Tesla has a unique Level 2 standard that only Tesla carscan use. However, Tesla products come with a J1772 adapter.LEVEL 3 DC FAST CHARGING: ONE HOUR OF CHARGEGIVES 250 KM OF RANGEDirect Current Fast or “Quick” Charging (shortened to DCFC) will recharge yourbattery from empty to 80% in 30-45 minutes. DCFC stations can be foundalong many major highways in Canada. There are three standards of Level3 charging: (i) CHAdeMO which is used by the Asian auto manufacturers; (ii)CCS which is used by the North American and European auto manufacturers,and (iii) Supercharger, which is used by Tesla. Most Level 3 stations in NorthAmerica (with the exception of Tesla Superchargers) have both CHAdeMO andCCS infrastructure. Simply pull up to the station and pick the standard that yourcar needs. Please note that Level 3 is designed for situations when you need to6Plug’n Drivecharge quickly, like during long trips andbusy driving days. The majority of yourcharging will be Level 1 or Level 2.PUBLIC CHARGINGThere are over 4,500 public chargingstations in Canada and counting. Theycan be found in a variety of places, suchas malls, restaurants, office towers,and other buildings. Public chargingstations are either free to use or payper use. Free-to-use stations do notrequire payment. However, some areonly available to customers, can only beused for a set amount of time and/orare located in parkades and parking lotswith associated parking fees. Pay-peruse stations vary in cost from location tolocation and although there is no industrystandard fee, Level 2 stations typicallycharge a 2.50 flat rate or 1.00/hour,while Level 3 stations charge 15.00/hour. Please note that you will likelyonly be plugged into Level 3 for 20-30minutes. It is billed by the minute andyou pay for what you use. To find a publiccharging station along your route, pleasevisit PlugShare or ChargeHub.PlugShare: STUDY:PETER AND SUSANNE“We were the first EV owners to requestcharging installation in our building.Our board was excellent! We provideda letter and some background readingon EVs and EV charging. We enteredinto an agreement with our condocorporation governing the payment ofinstallation costs and electricity. We pay 35 to charge our LEAF each month,based on 20,000 km of driving peryear. The best part has been answeringquestions from other owners—they allwant to know more when they see ourparking space! We know our buildinghas limited electrical capacity, so wethink our condo board is likely going tohave to adopt an energy managementsystem soon to deal with futureinstallation requests.”Make Your Condo EV Ready: 2018 Guide for Condo Owners, Boards and Managers7

TYPICAL EV CHARGINGINSTALLATION IN ACONDOMINIUMSome of the steps normally involved in installing a Level 2charging station in a condominium setting include:1) Obtaining any information regarding your condominium’spolicies on EV charging. Some buildings have an EVcharging policy or relationships with third parties whoprovide EV charging installation and maintenanceservices.FIGURE 3:Permission to install EVSECondo hasEV ChargingInstallation Policy1Condo does not haveEV Charging Policy /Third-party Charging Program1Condo owner asks managerabout EV charging2) Checking the building’s electrical capacity. This is theresponsibility of the building, not the resident.Condo owner asks managerabout EV charging3) Obtaining permission from the condo board to installcharging equipment.4) Installing wiring to the parking space (if you are runningwiring through common elements, you may need to runthe wire inside a “conduit”, which could be some kind ofpipe to protect the wires).5) Installing a Level 2 charger (Electric Vehicle SupplyEquipment), in accordance with any policies orcharging programs your condominium corporationmay have in place.6) Obtaining a permit from the Electrical Safety Authority(ESA) (your licensed electrical contractor will handlethis).While every condominiumis different, experts say thatmost installations in existingcondominiums tend to involvea similar procedure.THE MAIN ISSUE is getting electricity from either the electrical room or anelectrical sub-panel to the parking space where a person wants to (and isallowed to) install charging equipment. We asked our colleagues at SignatureElectric to provide a sample diagram showing some of the typical elementsof a condo parking space with a Level 2 charging station. Of course, everybuilding is different.FIGURE 2:Typical Condominium Installation Diagram100A600V75 KVATo MainDistribution Board600A600VMainBreaker90A 3P225A 120/208V 3P90A 3P90A 3P90A 3P90A 3P90A 3PSignature Electric – EV Power Distribution8Plug’n Drive7) Energizing the charger (you can use the charging stationin advance of receiving the certificate of inspection, butyou will ultimately need the certificate).8) Reporting. In some cases, condo boards and ownersagree to obtain reporting about electricity use fromsmart chargers. Be aware, though, that MeasurementCanada (a federal regulatory body) currently does notpermit the sale of electricity on the basis of energy(kWh) or time-related demand (kW) unless metersapproved by Measurement Canada are used—and wearen’t aware of any commercially available EV chargingequipment with such meters built in.1We’ve also provided an overview of the process for askingfor and receiving permission to install EVSE. Figure 3shows the typical process when the condominiumcorporation has a policy around EV charging and anexternal EV charging equipment supplier who suppliescharging equipment and helps the condominiumcorporation manage billing, repairs and maintenance.Figure 3 also shows the process in situations wherethe condominium corporation doesn’t yet have a policyor energy management system in place. In both cases,if a modification to a common element is required, theowner and corporation are likely to have to enter intoan agreement to allow for installation (a Section 98Agreement). This means a condo corporation shouldcontact its condominium lawyer early on in the process.2Manager provides informationregarding condominium chargerinstallation policy and connects ownerto condominium third party EV chargingequipment supplier (if applicable) andprovides form of application to installto condo owner3Condo owner submits application toinstall, executes any agreementsrequired, enters agreement with EVcharging equiment supplier, electricalcontractor, reviews any insurancerequirements and pays forinstallation / equipment42Manager reviews Condo Actregulations, then manager and userdiscuss steps for installation and anyquestions, owner submits formalapplication for installation to board forreview, along with requireddocumentation (drawings,specifications or information regardinginstallation) (at owner's cost unlessotherwise agreed)3Condo board determines whether itneeds a report or opinion (at itscost)and responds with its decisionwithin 60 days of report submission4If approved, condo owner agreementwith board and can proceed withinstallation (at owner’s cost unlessotherwise agreed)Installation andreceipt of ESA permit55Condo owner pays pre-agreed chargesand operates charging equipment inaccordance with building policies andany agreements with condo corporationInstallation andreceipt of ESA permit6Condo owner pays pre-agreed chargesand operates charging equipment inaccordance with building policies andany agreement1 Measurement Canada, “Electric vehicle charging stations” (Ottawa: MeasurementCanada, 2017).

ENERGY EFFICIENCY ANDLOAD MANAGEMENTNot all condo buildings haveenough electrical capacityto install large numbers ofEV charging stations.IF YOUR BUILDING IS CONSTRAINED, it might be a good idea to hire an energymanagement expert to perform a Level 2 Energy Audit in accordance with theAmerican Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE).A Level 2 Energy Audit helps clarify how much capacity the building has, outlinespotential energy saving actions that are possible and provides a financial analysis.Local utilities may even have programs to help save on electricity.Energy management at the building or charger level is another tool a building canuse to expand the number of EVs that can charge in a building and to limit thetotal amount of electricity used for EV charging. Energy management can be veryimportant for controlling building electrical costs. An engineer can use the hydro billsfrom the previous year and compare that to the building’s service size for an accurateassessment of the building’s typical electricity use. An ideal assessment will alsoinclude a recommendation as to the number of EVSE that could be installed with loadsharing in place.10Plug’n DriveA Level 2 Energy Audit helps clarify howmuch capacity the building has, outlinespotential energy saving actions thatare possible and provides a financialanalysis.

CONDO BOARD ANDMANAGER FAQSKeep in mind that if a proposedinstallation won’t work, you canprovide alternative solutions to condoowners (see Question 4, below).QUESTION 3:What if the Application to Installis incomplete?Ontario’s condo regulations requirethat if a condo board determines anapplication to install doesn’t meetregulatory requirements (e.g., becauseit is incomplete), the board must, assoon as reasonably possible (or asotherwise agreed in writing) respondto the owner in writing stating why,according to the board, the applicationwasn’t compliant (see O. Reg. 48/01, s.24.5(6)).4QUESTION 4:Can we propose an alternateway to install?DISCLAIMER: 1) Please keep inmind that neither Plug’n Drivenor the authors of this EV condoguide are providing legal advice.You should consult a qualifiedlawyer for any legal questions,and a qualified and licensedelectrical contractor for anyelectrical questions. 2) In theseFAQs, we refer to O. Reg. 48/01to the Ontario CondominiumAct, 1998 (O. Reg. 48/01)—theprovisions we refer to came intoeffect on May 1, 2018.QUESTION 1:Do we have to allow EV chargingin our building?Condo boards in Ontario are requiredto approve an application to install anEV Supply Equipment (EVSE) unlesscertain exemptions exist. If you arereceiving an application to install forthe first time, we suggest you consultyour condominium lawyer promptlyto review your obligations. Ontariorequires that condominium boardsrespond to a complete application toinstall within 60 days. You also haveto respond as soon as reasonablypossible if you think the applicationis incomplete (see O. Reg. 48/01, ss.24.5(5) and 24.5(6)).2QUESTION 2:Under what circumstances cana condo board deny a completeapplication to install EVSE?Condominium boards should do whatthey can to accommodate condoowners who want to drive electric,particularly as EV uptake increasesand more potential condo buyers12Plug’n Drivewon’t buy in buildings without thepossibility of charging.If you are considering rejecting anapplication to install, please makesure you consult your condo lawyerfirst. Ontario’s condo regulationsallow condo boards to reject anapplication for installation only if areport or opinion of a person whoseprofession lends credibility to thereport or opinion clearly states thatthe installation meets certain criteria,including, but not limited to: beingcontrary to the Electrical Safety Code(or another other act or regulation);adversely affecting the structuralintegrity of the condominiumcorporation’s property or assets; orposing a serious risk (i) to the healthand safety of an individual or (ii) ofdamage to the condo corporation’sproperty or assets (see O. Reg. 48/01,s. 24.5(8)).3 The report or opinionalso has to give the reasons for thisdetermination.2 See O. Reg. 48/01, ss. 24.5(5) and 24.5(6).3 See O. Reg. 48/01, s. 24.5(8).Ontario’s condo regulations allowcondo boards to require that aproposed installation be carried outin an alternative manner or locationif the alternative manner or locationwould not cause the owner to incurunreasonable additional costs andif the alternative manner or locationis necessary to avoid certain things,one of which is avoiding causing amaterial reduction or eliminationof the use or enjoyment of anotherowner’s unit, the common elementsor the condo corporation’s assets(see O. Reg. 48/01, s. 24.5(12)).5 Thisis something that you should consultyour condominium lawyer about.QUESTION 5:Can we require the use of ourown electrical contractors?Condominium boards in Ontariocan make reasonable bylaws togovern the maintenance of commonelements and the managementof the condominium property (seeCondominium Act, 1998, S.O. 1998,c. 19, subsections 56(1)(j), 56(1)(l) and 56(6)). Many condominiumboards find it reasonable and in thebest interests of their condominiumcorporation to create a list ofapproved contractors. We suggestensuring that you have more than onecontractor on your list with experienceinstalling EVSE and who understandsany energy management system youhave in place so your residents areable to get multiple quotes.QUESTION 6:Does the condo corporation haveto pay for the electricity used tocharge EVs in our building?Ontario does not require condocorporations to pay for the electricityused to charge EVs without anycompensation from condo ownerswho install EVSE, unless thecorporation agrees to do so. Whenan Ontario condo board approves anapplication to install, the corporationand the applicant owner are requiredto take all reasonable steps to enterinto an EVSE installation, use andoperation agreement (an EVSEAgreement) within 90 days (see O.Reg. 48/01, s. 24.6).6The EVSE Agreement is requiredto set out responsibility for the costof the use of the EVSE, which likelyincludes the cost of electricity (seeO. Reg. 48/01 s.24.6(3)(c)). Keep inmind, though, that MeasurementCanada takes the position that thesale of electricity on the basis ofenergy (kWh) or time-related demand(kW) is not permitted unless metersapproved by Measurement Canadaare used—and we aren’t aware ofany commercially available EVSE withsuch meters built in.7 Some condocorporations have interpreted this aspreventing them from charging forelectricity directly. One option is tocharge a flat fee based on estimatesof how much electricity an EV mightuse every day based on normaloperating conditions. Another optionis to charge on a per-use basis. Thiscan be done several ways, includingsmart meters, sign-out systems ornetworked charging stations. ManyEVSE manufacturers and networkoperators will manage the paymenton behalf of the building. Othercondo corporations use approachesthat may not be approved byMeasurement Canada. Whatever youdecide, your approach should be setout in your EV charging by-law andreflected in your EVSE Agreement.QUESTION 7:Do we have to pay for theinstallation costs for a condoowner to install chargingequipment?Unless the owner and the condocorporation agree otherwise, Ontariolaw states that if the owner or aperson retained by the owner carriesout the installation, the owner isresponsible for all costs to carryout an EVSE installation. If thecorporation or a person retainedby the corporation carries outthe installation, the owner is stillresponsible for the costs, but theymust be reasonable and necessary tocarry out the installation (see O. Reg.48/01, s. 24.6(4)).8QUESTION 8:Our building doesn’t haveenough electrical capacity toallow for the installation of acharging station—can we refusea request to install?Keep in mind that, as EVs increasein popularity, buildings that don’thave EVSE may be less attractive topotential buyers who want to chargetheir EVs at home. We suggest youconsider hiring a qualified energymanagement expert to conduct anASHRAE Level 2 Energy Audit. A Level2 Energy Audit helps you understandhow much electrical capacity yourbuilding has, potential energy savingactions you could take, and providesa financial analysis. Your local utilitymay also have programs to help yousave on electricity. You may also wantto look into energy managementsystems, which can help makebest use of your available capacitybetween EV charging and other uses.4567See O. Reg. 48/01, s. 24.5(6).See O. Reg. 48/01, s. 24.5(12).See O. Reg. 48/01, s. 24.6.Measurement Canada, “Electric vehicle charging stations”(Ottawa: Measurement Canada, 2017). Available /lm04839.html.8 See O. Reg. 48/01, s. 24.6(4).Make Your Condo EV Ready: 2018 Guide for Condo Owners, Boards and Managers13

If a building truly does not havesufficient capacity to charge an EV,Ontario’s condo regulations may allowcondo boards to reject an applicationbased on legitimate reasons (seeQuestion 2 on the previous page).If a proposed installation won’twork, you can provide alternativesolutions to condo owners, such ascommunity shared EV charging spots(see Question 4 above).QUESTION 9:Our building has limitedelectrical capacity. What can wedo to ensure that other residentswill be allowed to install later?We think it is a very good idea to keepfuture EV users in mind (as adoptionis growing rapidly). We recommendincluding a requirement in any EVcharging bylaw and EVSE Agreementwith a condo owner that the condoowner will participate in any futureenergy management program enteredinto by the condominium. Manycondo boards are now working withEV charging providers to create andinstall systems that allow for multiplecondo owners to charge their EVs atonce using energy management andpower sharing systems.To put a requirement like thisin place, you should consult witha condo lawyer to make sure itconforms either with the provisionsof O. Reg. 48/01, for example aroundalternative manner or location ofinstallation (see Question 4 above)or the condo corporation’s right toset out the respective duties andresponsibilities of the corporationand the owner with respect to theEVSE in an EVSE Agreement (see O.Reg. 48/01, s. 24.6(3)(c)).10 Any policyrelated to power sharing shouldideally be in place before movingahead with the first installation.QUESTION 10:We want to make our buildingEV ready. What should we do?As EVs increase in popularity,buildings that don’t have chargersmay be less attractive to potentialbuyers who want to be able to driveand charge their EVs. We knowmultiple developers are starting toplan for high levels of EV adoption, soit makes sense to consider keepingyour building competitive with newerbuildings. One option is to conducta study to look at your building’scurrent capacity for EV charging.If there are limitations, you couldconsider hiring a qualified energymanagement expert to conduct anASHRAE Level 2 Energy Audit.
