Electric vehicles are becoming more common – make sure your housing company is ready

Electric vehicles and chargeable hybrids are experiencing a tremendous growth. Up to 90 per cent of electric vehicle charging takes place at home, and the residents expect housing companies to offer the readiness for vehicle charging. Some are already choosing their housing company on this basis. Even if this requirement is not a current concern for your housing company today, it may well be so tomorrow. We offer a solution for your housing company on a handy turnkey principle. Did you know that it is possible to apply for ARA funding for the investment?

Smart charging – without major investment

The smart charging points invoice the customer directly and according to use. Smart load management enables an even distribution of charging power when several vehicles are charged simultaneously.

The Housing Finance and Development Centre of Finland (ARA) grants subsidies for changes that need to be made to the electrical systems in properties as a result of electric vehicle charging points. The amount of subsidy is 45 per cent, and it is available for housing companies, rental housing associations and the parking companies owned by them. The subsidy can be increased to 55 per cent if at least half of the charging points acquired with the subsidy are rated at least at 11 kW.

"Driving an electric vehicle is a smart choice. Many residents of our housing company have also considered acquiring an electric vehicle. In our annual general meeting, we made a unanimous decision on acquiring a charging device for shared use. In the budget of the housing company, this is a relatively small item of expenditure. The option of charging electric vehicles is a selling point when a person who drives an electric vehicle is considering buying an apartment in our housing company."

-Pekko Ahoniemi, Chairman of the Board of Directors of Bostads Ab Museigatan 3
