A pilot program to help condominium and homeowners associations that want to install electric vehicle charging stations is now in its second phase.
The Charge Up Fairfax program, which is taking applications through November 12, aims to guide the county’s more than 1,500 HOAs through the process. The county would provide homeowners associations that own common area parking a feasibility analysis that would look at the parking location and the site’s access to electricity.
A county memo said staff and consultants will work with a new cohort of five common-interest HOA communities. “County staff and consultants have already been working with five homeowner
associations in the first phase of the pilot,” said the memo from John Morrill, acting director of the Office of Environmental and Energy Coordination.
In spring 2024, the county plans to launch the Charge Up Fairfax program at full scale, working with 15 communities a year, according to county documents.
The county hopes that by 2030 that 15 percent of light vehicles are EVs, and that the percentage grows to 42 percent by 2050.
