Guide to All-Electric, Lower Cost Multifamily Buildings with EV Charging

March 31 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm

For architects, builders, developers and engineers to gain confidence in building all-electric multifamily buildings with EV chargers.

This virtual course will provide architects, builders, developers, and engineers, with the confidence and knowledge to build all-electric, future-proofed, multifamily buildings with the advantage of electric vehicle (EV) charging. This class will demonstrate, with actual examples, how all-electric multifamily buildings are easier and less costly to build, maintain, and operate. This class will give attendees proven methodologies for proactively seizing this opportunity – and avoiding common pitfalls. New incentives that can cover 100% of the cost of installing EV chargers will also be covered.

Learning objectives of this session include:

1. Learn the difference in first costs to the builder and utility costs to the residents of all-electric multifamily buildings and the revenue possible through installing EV chargers for residents to use

2. Take advantage of incentives to future-proof new multifamily buildings with EV chargers and all-electric designs

3. Understand the Title 24 and CalGreen codes as they apply to all-electric multifamily buildings and EV charging and how to meet their minimum requirements
