With 179 individual apartments, this building is leading the charge in allowing residents to install their own personal EV charging station, located in their very own car spot, just like the one in question, apartment 311.

Gone are the days of having to wait in line or share a charging station with others in the building.

But questions remain unanswered, should the owner rent or sell the apartment to an EV owner? If they rent it, what type of money should they charge on top of the weekly rent if any? How much value does this add to the apartment and how much value does this type of service add to the complex knowing there’s no red tape to install your own EV charging station? This is a debate that has taken social media by storm, with opinions divided. Is it better to sell the apartment and give a green-thumbed EV owner the chance to make the most of the charging station or should it be rented to someone who values the convenience and eco-friendliness of having their own personal charging station?

The owner’s choice, a Volvo XC40

The owners’ corporation of Illume had always envisioned providing their residents with an up-to-date and convenient living experience. This is why they chose Colussus as their EV charging station provider, as Colussus stood out from the rest with their custom infrastructure build and an advanced three-phase charging system, complete with software for load, user, and billing management.

Illume is a prime example of a building that has taken the future of EV charging into consideration and gone above and beyond to protect each individual strata member and the strata plan lot. The installation of these charging stations is just one of the many ways that Illume is setting a new standard for eco-friendly and convenient living in Eastern Sydney’s suburbs. With this innovative solution, residents can now charge up their lives in style and enjoy the peace of mind that comes with having their own personal EV charging station.

Electric vehicle (EV) charging stations are becoming increasingly common in apartment buildings. With the growing popularity of EVs, it is essential that strata management and strata committees only install charging stations with load management capabilities. This is to ensure that the electricity supply remains stable and does not overload, causing power outages for all residents in the building.

Installing an EV charging station in a house power circuit can lead to a number of problems. Firstly, residents will have no idea how much energy is being used, making it difficult to monitor and control their electricity consumption. Additionally, if too much energy is being used, it can cause an overload in the power circuit, leading to a blackout in the entire building. This can be extremely disruptive to the peace and enjoyment of all residents.

Load management systems are specifically designed to ensure that the electricity supply remains stable, even when multiple EVs are being charged at the same time. This technology is able to monitor the electricity consumption of each charging station, and adjust the charging speed accordingly. This helps to prevent power outages and ensure that all residents in the building have access to reliable electricity.

In conclusion, it is essential that strata management and strata committees only install EV charging stations with load management capabilities. This will ensure that the electricity supply remains stable and does not cause any disruptions for residents in the building. By choosing load management systems, strata committees, and management can help to create a sustainable and efficient energy system, that benefits everyone in the building.
