SDGE “Power Your Drive” Program
Posted By rhart on September 12, 2018
The Association will be participating in SDGE’s “Power Your Drive” program, in which SDGE will install 5 to 6 electric vehicle charging stations in the common area parking at a low cost to the Association. The proposed location for the charging stations will be in the back of the property on the Padrino side. This program will enable owners of electric vehicles in the community to charge their vehicle and have the cost billed to their individual account. The electricity in the garages is metered to the common area electricity (except for the townhome units). In order to charge an electric vehicle in their garage, a homeowner would have to complete the Electric Vehicle Charging Station Application and have their electricity ran to their own individual unit so as to not have the charging of their electric vehicle billed to the Association. This program will make it much easier and more cost effective for residents with electric vehicles to charge their vehicles in the community and provide an opportunity for residents who do not have garages to have an electric vehicle. The project is in the planning stages at SDGE and is anticipated to be completed by the end of 2018.
