SDG&E:  Seeking Turn Key Solution for your EV Charging Needs?
SDG&E's Power Your Drive program will install 3,500 electric vehicle charging stations in apartments, condo's and businesses.  SDG&E will install, own, maintain and operate the stations and handle all of the billing so you don't have to.  EV drivers can pay for their own electricity on their SDG&E bill, or if you want to offer it to your employees or tenants as an amenity you can cover the cost yourself. 
The best part is that the installations are separately metered and will come directly off of an SDG&E service/transformer, so it won't impact your electrical panel serving the building. There is a nominal one-time participation payment required, and that one-time payment is waived for properties located within disadvantaged communities.    
Installations are slated to begin mid-year and with over 400 properties on the interest list already the program is filling up quickly.
