Multi-Unit Dwelling Charging

Building for the Future – Vehicle Charging Innovations for Multi-Unit Dwellings

Vehicle Charging Innovations for Multi-Unit Dwellings

We’re seeking demonstration sites

Spring 2020 – We will demonstrate innovative charging technology and approaches at MUD and residential curbside sites (existing, expanding, and new charging sites) such as energy management, energy storage, light pole charging, fast charging hubs, scheduling software, etc.

We are actively looking for MUD sites to partner with FreeWire Technologies, Liberty Plugins, and ampUp for our project.

  • FreeWire: Mobi Charger - A mobile 2-port Level 2 EVSE (Energy Storage + EVSE + wheels + drive/control/communication system)
  • Liberty Plugins: Multiplexes a single power input to between 5-10 EVSE to service more parking spaces
  • ampUp: Maximizes EVSE use of the community through a reservation system as well as billing, tracking, and analytical functionalities


Benefits of participating include:

  • A data analysis report comparing a site’s charging station
    utilization of the overall project baseline
  • Learn about innovative technologies and approaches can
    reduce costs, expand service, and/or improve utilization
  • Early access to project tools and resources

Improved feasibility and affordability of MUD and curbside residential PEV charging

To learn more about participating in the project as a data provider or a demonstration site, please see the one-pager here.

Charging up at home.

The ability to charge one's vehicle at home is an important amenity for the increasing number of renters and tenants who drive electric or hybrid vehicles. Providing charging at a multi-unit dwelling (MUD) helps to attract and retain tenants while accelerating the adoption of electric and hybrid vehicles. 


Why install charging stations?

  • Attracts and retain tenants

  • Prepare for future mass adoption of Plug-in Electric Vehicles

  • Potential extra source of revenue from visitors

  • Earn points towards LEED and other sustainability certification

  • Lower your building’s carbon footprint and attract like-minded tenants to the community

  • The International Code Council (ICC) passed EV-readiness requirements for new residential buildings in the International Energy Conservation Code (IECC), which will be adopted by code agencies around the country. 

MUD EV Charging Roadmap

  • Stakeholder Activation
  • Planning and Siting
  • Permitting
  • Accessibility
  • Grid Connection
  • Installation, Commissioning, and Operation
