> THE LAW HELPS
Legislative Decree n. 257/2016 brings attention to the need to equip the charging infrastructure for residential buildings newly built with at least 10 housing units and related building renovation. The standard specifies that it will be necessary to provide for the connection for the possible installation of electrical infrastructures for charging vehicles suitable to allow the connection of a car from each parking space and from each garage for cars (pertinent or not).
> IF YOU HAVE A BOX
If the condominium is in possession of a box, he has a single meter and wants install a wallbox inside your garage (prices range from 400 to 3,000 euros), you simply need to send a formal communication to the administrator who will be able to do nothing but take note of it. The works must clearly be carried out in accordance with the law. In addition, all the works that affect the common parts, such as the laying of cables or any traces on the walls of relevance must be authorized by the administrator, in addition to being totally borne by the condominium.
The discussion changes if the condominium connects to the condominium power line; in this case the administrator, after instructing a technician to carry out all the feasibility checks, must establish the amount and the share of the expenses to be incurred. To keep energy consumption under control and to charge the costs to the individual condominium, a special meter will be set up.
> INSTALL A WALLBOX IN A COMMON AREA
If the condominium does not have a garage or private area, it can still install the charging point in ‘common area condominium (courtyard). In this case, he must submit a formal written request to the administrator, accompanied by a detailed project also of the executive phase, and must wait for the authorization of the condominium assembly (regulation of the space occupied by the vehicle during charging is important). To obtain authorization for the installation, it is necessary to reach the deliberative quorum, the majority of the participants and at least half the value of the building expressed in thousandths of a quota.
All the costs of purchase and of installation, including construction works, will be borne by the individual condominium or group involved in the intervention (in a similar way to the installation of the elevator after the construction of the building). The installation costs will then be shared only between the condominiums that have wanted the recharging point and that will use it, while the consumption costs will be distributed in proportion to the consumption.
If the installation is decided by the entire apartment building, the charging system obviously becomes a common good condominium, therefore the expenses must be equally divided between the condominiums (the top-up costs will be charged based on the consumption actually recorded).
> IF THE CONDÒMINI CHANGE THE IDEA?
Condominiums who originally voted against will then be able to change their mind and participate in the use of the column, provided that you pay retroactively what is due, in addition to the legal interest.
> WHAT TO DO IN THE EVENT OF FAILURE TO ASSENT THE ASSEMBLY
In case of non-consent of the Assembly, the individual condominium or the group interested in thewallbo installationx, within three months from the request made in writing to the administrator, they can still proceed with the installation of the devices at their own expense, provided that the new system does not damage the common parts.
> EXISTING BONUSES
The Budget Law 2019 introduced a tax deduction of 50% expenses incurred (including initial costs for the request for additional power up to a maximum of 7 kW) for those who install, from 1 March 2019 to 31 December 2021, electric recharging infrastructures, also in condominiums. The deduction must be divided into 10 equal annual installments and is calculated on a total amount not exceeding 3,000 euros per capita.
Recharging stations for condominiums or individual homes are facilitated, the important thing is that they are for the exclusive use of condominiums, who purchase them, based on their share, and which, always pro-quota, will be able to deduct part of the subsidized amount.
