Frequently Asked Questions

Expensive installation. Not many people in the apartment association currently need to charge electric cars. Installing a charger for only one or two cars is an expensive and complex process which involves additional charges, for example, for the preparation and approval of the electricity project.

Connection capacity. The apartment building does not have the necessary connection capacity to install individual chargers for everyone. Increasing the amperage of a main fuse as a resident is very expensive and can cost thousands of euros.

Complex administrative steps. Installing a charger requires the consensus of other members of the apartment association and getting them to agree is a complicated and time-consuming process.

Future management. No clear strategy has been developed for managing the charging system in a comprehensive manner, including the reporting of electricity consumption to the apartment association.

For this purpose, Enefit Volt has developed a comprehensive solution for apartment buildings that satisfies the needs of the present and eliminates the need for additional large investments in the future. Installing chargers becomes quick and easy!

Connection capacity. The power system of an apartment building has limited capacity and the additional load of electric car charging has not been taken into account in their design. If the installation of chargers has not been thought through and new chargers are added, the power system can easily become overloaded and the building may lose power completely.

Installation of charger. If chargers are connected directly to the main switchboard of the building, there may not be sufficient room for fuses. Even if the fuses for the first electric car can be installed in the main switchboard, there will not be a place for future electric car users to connect their chargers.

Apartment association authorisations. In order to carry out work in the switchboard or the parking lot of the building, the resident must obtain the permission of the members of the apartment association. This means that for each subsequent charger a general meeting of the apartment association must be convened to grant approvals and authorisations. Any additional bureaucracy is not sustainable for the apartment association or the end user.

Energy consumption reporting. If there are many individually installed chargers in the building that have not been interfaced to a central management system, it is difficult to measure the power consumption per car or apartment. Even if apartment owners report the readings from their charger, it creates additional work for many parties and the system quickly becomes unmanageable.

This is why Enefit Volt offers a transparent and convenient comprehensive solution for apartment buildings. We take care of the design, installation, maintenance and day-to-day management of the solution.

Installing a new charger in a parking lot with comprehensive charging readiness is quick and easy. Residents who are looking to install a charger can contact Enefit Volt directly without having to obtain any additional approvals from the apartment association, thus cutting out a lot of red tape for the association.

Developing a charging readiness solution for electric cars in the building is a forward-looking and major investment that is decided by the general meeting of the apartment association. The costs of the investment are shared between the apartment association and Enefit Volt under the contract concluded.

Enefit Volt covers the investment in the central units of the charging system, which include the flexible load control module in the electrical switchboard of the building and the switchboard(s) necessary for connecting the chargers in the parking area. We also take care of the day-to-day management and maintenance of the system without additional charges and offer a charging service to the residents of the building.

The apartment association covers the costs of the work related to the installation of the charging solution, including installation of equipment and preparatory work on parking spaces (excavation, installation of cable sleeves and cabling, etc.).

The end user, i.e. the resident using an electric car, is responsible for covering the cost of installing the charger in their parking space and renting or purchasing the device. To this end, a contract must be concluded with Enefit Volt directly.

Please fill in the inquiry form on our website. Our sales engineer for charging solutions will contact you by phone to map the current situation and give you instructions on how to proceed. They will also send you additional materials and a checklist for the apartment association board to fill out.

Our solution is suitable for apartment buildings where each apartment has its own parking space(s). The charging solution will cover the entire parking lot so that every electric car user will have the opportunity to conclude a contract with Enefit Volt for the purchase or full service rental of a charger with installation for their parking space at any time. If the parking spaces are shared, we can offer the installation of Enefit Volt’s public charger on the premises of the apartment association. Let us know of your wishes via the inquiry form on our website.

No, as the chargers installed in the apartment building use the building’s common power system and capacity for charging, flexible load control is necessary to prevent overloading. Flexible load control is only ensured through the use of devices and management system installed by the service provider Enefit Volt, to which only compatible chargers can be added. Another important aspect is the reporting process of charging costs and the monitoring of the functioning of chargers which is also platform-based.

We offer payment in installments for apartment associations

The installation of a charging solution requires a one-off investment from the apartment association. In order to bring convenient and affordable home charging to your apartment building, we offer apartment associations flexible payment in installments for works and services.
