Survey the electricity system of your housing company in time
You must study the building’s electricity system before you can install any electric vehicle charging stations.
The needs survey for electric vehicle charging stations covers the following, for example:
- Capacity of the housing company’s existing electricity system
- Maximum power of the building’s electrical connection
The needs of electric vehicle charging stations can be surveyed in both large and small properties.
Needs survey provides initial data for electricity system design
As electric cars become more common, there is more pressure to increase the quality of the electricity systems in housing companies. This requires the design of a comprehensive and functional charging network that includes a sufficient number of charging stations. The increasing number of electric cars increases the number of charging stations and network improvement needs, but the trend is also expected to work the other way round.
In particular, as the Housing Finance and Development Centre of Finland (ARA) has announced future subsidies, there is pressure on many housing companies and workplaces. Any investments in the construction of electric vehicle charging infrastructure will influence the requirements on the property’s electricity network.
The needs survey is excellent for housing companies
The needs survey studies the capacity of the housing company’s current main distribution board and how many loading stations can be installed with the current capacity. The housing company can then proceed with the acquisition of the electric vehicle charging stations based on the information obtained from the survey.
The requirements for electric vehicle charging stations can be studied both in blocks of flats and terraced houses, in connection with other large properties and, of course, also in detached and semi-detached houses.
Why should you perform an electric vehicle charging station needs survey?
Electric cars require from the housing company the planning of a comprehensive and functional charging network and a sufficient number of charging stations. Any investments in the construction of electric vehicle charging infrastructure will influence the requirements on the property’s electricity network. Before starting the installation of electric vehicle charging stations, you should have the property’s electricity system studied.
Content of the electric vehicle charging station needs survey
The needs survey studies how well suited the property’s current electricity system is for charging stations, how many stations can be installed and which charging method should be selected.
The needs survey covers the capacity of the property’s electrical connection and circuit breakers, the connecting cable, the current boards and electrical installations in the parking area.
The needs study assesses the suitability of the housing company’s electricity systems for charging electric cars. The assessment is based on observations made during a site visit and technical documentation available for the site.
Electric vehicle charging station needs survey report
You will receive a written report of the electric vehicle charging station needs survey, including all the observations. The report will be delivered to you in PDF format. You do not need to prepare for the electric vehicle charging station needs survey in any way.
You can enclose the report as such with your application to ARA.
