Our solution : Central system, local plugs and smartphone use
Our system consists in a central technical box ready for 16 individual plugs . The central box is installed in a technical room of the building, idealy not far from the electric meters. The central power management consider the global power available at any time and spread it between cars and organise the charges.
From this room we connect the parking with a cable by plug on individual spots.
In practice : you plug and you start your charge !
The Plug can be located between 2-4 places according to parking configuration and shared between those places. The length of the cable can adjusted to reach any place without disturbing neighboors. the objective of this configuration is reduce the price for accasional use and larger absorption of not yet Electrified vehicule owners.
The key role of your smart phone
To start stop the plug, you need an initial user access and a smartphone .
The consumption is recorded by user and the plug can be shared with autorised users only. No card needed to charge your car, only a smartphone is required.
The Syndic receive the monthly consumption by places and by user. Every single charge is logged, making it easy to rent the place and reinvoice the consumption to the users.

- The Annual General Assembly must agree to invest for the minimum requiremed infrastructure : the control power monitoring and the electric box ready to accept 16 individual plugs. This configuration is enough for a parking of 50 spots allowing each of them to have access to charging solution for every kind of vehicules. This central configuration must be financed by the whole community of parking space owners, but his will give value to the building and is a little amount for each.
- The parking must be divided into zones accessibles by a single plug . A plug can be easily shared between up to 4 parking spots.
- The owners must then answer the question if they are interested to have access to such a device. The price of the plug will be splited between interested owners within the zone where is their spot located. The objective of the split is to reduce the price. Communications between users of the same plug is facilitated by the application when people are at the residence at the same time. Courtesy between users will of course help to solve potential and rare charge timing conflicts.
- Software access : a yearly fee is asked by identified user for application access , power management and periodic reporting to the Syndic.
