QUESTION: We recently had a homeowner request permission to install an EV charging station in his garage. That wouldn’t be a problem except he wants to use it to charge a car outside his garage.

The Board feared that would represent a trip hazard as the cord would cross common area sidewalk. We consulted with legal and were told that was a legitimate cause to deny the request particularly in light of the fact that the owner did have the option of clearing out the garage and charging it inside.

ANSWER: Safety trumps. Your owner can have charging station in his garage, provided he clears it out and parks his car in his garage where he can safely charge it.
