Act 164: EV Charging Station Installation Multi-Unit Dwelling Working Group

An estimated 38 percent of Hawaii’s housing units are in Multi-unit dwellings (MUDs), which include condominiums, cooperative housing and community associations.  MUDs pose challenges to EV charging because of permitting requirements, assigned parking spaces, cost allocation for installing and operating charging facilities, and the need for coordination with building managers and homeowners associations.

In 2015 the Hawaii State Legislature passed Act 164, establishing a working group to “examine the issues regarding requests to the board of directors of an association of apartment owners, condominium association, cooperative housing corporation, or planned community association for the installation of electric vehicle charging system.” The working group explored barriers and opportunities and produce a report of their findings and recommendations for legislation that could best promote EV adoption in Hawaii by improving charging infrastructure in MUDs.
