Can you charge an electric car at a rental home?
I want to get an electric car for my next car, but I have some concerns as I currently live in a rental. Can you still charge an electric car in a rental home?

You definitely don’t need to be a homeowner in order to easily and conveniently charge your electric vehicle, but it does still largely depend on your setup.
If you have access to a private garage or carport with an electrical outlet, you can use the Level 1 outlet to charge your car, but there are other options as well.
- Talk to your landlord or HOA about the possibility of installing Level 2 chargers onsite or in the shared parking area with other members of your neighborhood, building, or apartment complex.
- Charge your car at work or ask your workplace if they have any plans to install electric car chargers.
- Join an online community of other electric car drivers to find convenient places to charge your car.
As electric cars grow in popularity, having an option to charge an electric car could be a huge perk for landlords and apartment complex owners hoping to incentivize new renters onto their property.
