The future of eco-friendly and convenient living has arrived in Eastern Sydney’s suburbs within the multi-unit residential building, Illume at 2 Galaup St Little Bay. 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. With the commitment from their building manager Tanya McManus from TL Building Management Services, residents of Illume can take advantage of the latest technology and have their own charging stations installed, ensuring a seamless and convenient experience.

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 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.
