New Luxury Apartment Homes Providing Private EV Charging Options




 

For Austin residents wanting a faster charge than regular electric outlets provide for their PEV, Austin Energy offers customers a 50% rebate (up to $1,500) towards the hardware and installation of Level 2 charging stations in their home. 

While this is great for homeowners, what about the estimated 40% of Austin’s population who reside in multifamily communities? Unless designated parking spots near Level 1 chargers are provided, renters will experience difficulty ensuring they’re able to maintain an adequate charge for their PEV; this obstacle can greatly influence the decision for renters considering the switch to a PEV. Fortunately, Austin Energy teams up with apartment communities across Austin by installing EV charging stations for resident and public use.

Tacara Steiner Ranch Apartments, a brand new Northwest Austin community near Lake Travis, raised the bar and took it one step further. 

In addition to their public EV charging station outside of the community’s clubhouse, Tacara is installing 13 private-use Level 2 charging station outlets as an optional luxury amenity for their residents.  These private charging stations are located in direct-access attached garages and detached garages throughout the community and assigned/specific to the resident renting only, which guarantees an available charging station 24/7/365.

Austin Energy hopes other apartment communities will follow Tacara’s lead by installing Level 2 charging station outlets throughout their properties for private resident use. By removing the obstacle of searching for a reliably accessible PEV charging station, this trend will empower Austin renters to go green and confidently make the switch to a PEV!
