EV Charging Technical Support
Sales and use of electric vehicles (EV) are growing rapidly in San Mateo County but planning for EV charging can be a daunting task for apartment managers and owners. Peninsula Clean Energy wants to make it easier for multifamily properties owners to become EV-ready for their tenants.
PCE is offering technical assistance, including free site electrical assessments, guidance on apartment policies and linkages to existing resources for EV charger installations. The Easy Charge Apartments program will guide you to prepare your properties for the growing demand for EV-ready homes. The program is designed to help you:
- Know how many spaces for charging will be available
- Know the cost of providing charging infrastructure on the property
- Know how the property intends to administrate the charging program

Types of Chargers
Level 1: Easy
Plug in at home to a normal outlet. You don’t need special equipment to charge your car at home. Electric cars come with a cord that works in normal 120-volt household outlets on a dedicated circuit. An average EV can add about 30 miles of battery range overnight.
Level 2: Faster
Plug in to 240-volt chargers. For faster changing, many owners install Level 2 chargers at home or use charging stations at work or other convenient locations. An average EV can add about 100 miles of battery range in about 4 hours.
Level 3: Fastest
DC fast charge while running errands. A special plug lets some EVs charge super fast with direct current. Public Level 3 chargers are located at grocery stores and shopping malls throughout San Mateo County. An average EV can add over 100 miles in 40 minutes.
