I live in a condo complex where I have two assigned parking spots in an underground garage. The complex, which opened two years ago, uses Chargepoint for their charging solution. The problem is that it seems insanely expensive to me- $2,500 for installation, $2,500 for the charger itself, and $20/month for the property management to maintain the CP account.
My question is, under state law, do I have any rights as far as installing my own charger? The property management straight up says that that isn't an option, I haven't brought it up with the HOA board yet. I just know that in my previous condo which had no charging options, some neighbors were able to hire an electrician with the correct insurance coverage and get their own chargers installed in their spots, once they got the approval of the board.
Can my HOA/property management company really force me to go with Chargepoint? Do I have any laws supporting me if I were to go to the board and request this alternate?
