Waukegan, Illinois (October 2, 2014) Telefonix®, Inc., a leader in cord reel technology and manufacturer of custom electronics, announces that their PowerPost® line of commercial electric vehicle charging stations (EVSE) qualifies for the recently signed California Assembly Bill 2565 that addresses charging stations at multifamily rental properties.
According to the bill’s author, "In order to address the lack of EV infrastructure, AB 2565 seeks to remove an impediment to EV charging station installation. Property owners may refuse to allow the installation of a charging station even if the tenant is willing to pay for the installation and operation of the station. AB 2565 would remove this impediment by stating that a property owner cannot deny a tenant the ability to install a charging station if the tenant is willing to pay for all expenses related to the installation and operation of the station."
Recently signed into law, AB 2565 requires the owner of multifamily, commercial or residential property to approve the installation of EV charging stations provided that the installation meets specified requirements and complies with the owner’s process for approving modifications to the property.
Certain types of properties such as residential rental property with fewer than five parking spaces, and properties subject to rent control are exempt from the law and there are limitations that apply.
Telefonix designed the PowerPost EVSE product line specifically for commercial parking lots or garages where cars are parked for two or more hours. PowerPost EVSE is perfect for multifamily apartment complexes, and are designed for long life and low cost.
The L1 PowerPost™ EVSE was the first commercial Level 1 EV charging station with a patented, retractable cord reel. The company’s latest entry into the EV charging market is a commercial, low-current Level 2 electric vehicle charging station called the L2 PowerPost™ EVSE. Both Telefonix models feature a “first in the industry” patented cord reel for cable management that is built in to the PowerPost EVSE pedestal.
“The Telefonix cord reel management system doesn’t change the height or look of the EVSE like some modified gas pump cable designs. With a low MSRP and powerful safety features, property managers can rest assured that their investment is well worth it and will be able to qualify for AB 2565,” said Bill Williams of Telefonix.
