Follow California's example and give condo owners the ability to own electric vehicles and have a place to charge them "at home".
"This bill would provide that any covenant, restriction, or condition contained in any deed, contract, security instrument, or other instrument affecting the transfer or sale of any interest in a
common interest development, or any provision of the governing documents of a common interest development, that effectively prohibits or restricts the installation or use of an electrical
vehicle charging station is void and unenforceable.
The bill would authorize an association, as defined, to impose reasonable restrictions on those stations, as specified, and would impose requirements with respect to an association's approval process for those stations. If the station is to be placed in a common interest area or an exclusive use common area, the homeowner would be responsible for various costs associated with maintaining and repairing the station, as well as costs for damage to common areas and adjacent units resulting from installation and maintenance of the station. The bill would impose other responsibilities on the homeowner, including maintaining an umbrella liability coverage
policy of $1,000,000 that names the common interest development as an additional insured. An association that violates the bill's provisions would be liable for damages and a civil penalty, as
specified." - (http://www.aroundthecapitol.com/billtrack/text.html?bvid=20110SB20994CHP)
