electriccarwithatlantaAre associations required to provide electric vehicle charging stations?

No.  There is no law in Georgia which requires condominium associations to provide public electric vehicle charging stations.  However, associations may wish to provide common charging stations as an amenity.

Must associations allow owners to install electric vehicle charging stations?

No.  Georgia law does not currently require condominium associations to permit the installation of private electric vehicle charging stations.  However, the law may soon change.  With the increase in electric vehicle ownership, the law is evolving as states address the new technology.  For example, California recently enacted a law which makes any language in governing documents that effectively prohibits or restricts the installation or use of electric vehicle charging stations void and unenforceable. However, California associations can still impose reasonable restrictions that do not significantly increase the cost or performance of the charging stations.
