    Nice list. While the list above is specifically about apartments, many people also own or rent units in condo buildings. As the President of a condo board, I also encourage anyone interested to talk with their condo's management team and Board. Many Associations are trying to find a solution. We have five 4 BEVs and 2 PHEVs at my condo and we're doing everything we can to support those who want to make the transition but nothing can move forward if people who want charging don't ask/demand it from their communities.

    Also, the Virginia legislature passed the "Right to Charge" law in February preventing condominiums from preventing an owner from installing charging. Condos can sill make it hard but they can't prevent it if you're willing to pay for the power pull and installation. The law does not apply to apartments but ask for it and demand it anyway. There is no stronger signal than telling a rental office that they are losing your business because of a lack of charging. When it starts hitting the bottom line, change will happen stunningly fast. All those places that said it was too expensive or too hard will miraculously find a way to make charging available.
