Electric car charging for housing cooperatives
Give your tenants the option of charging at home
The number of electric and hybrid vehicles in Sweden is increasing steadily, and people’s expectations for being able to charge their cars where they live are increasing among both tenants and apartment owners. As a property owner, you can meet these expectations by installing one or more charging stations at your property or residents’ car park. This way, you make your residents’ everyday lives that bit easier while also being a part of the green transition.
Wallboxes with enough power for everyone
GARO wallbox are designed for simple, safe and efficient vehicle charging adjacent to your housing cooperative. You can connect up to 50 outlets to the same distribution cabinet, making them the ideal choice of wallbox for you and your tenants.
- Each wallbox has an integrated network card for a wireless or wired connection to the property’s network and can be fitted with dynamic load balancing so as not to overload the main fuse.
- Authorised users unlock the wallbox with an RFID tag.
- G-Cloud offers you a central metering service with data for your wallbox that can be broken down by user, charging station and period.
- In compliance with Swedish electrical installation regulations, each wallbox is fitted with DC fault monitoring, which acts as a smarter version of a Type B residual current device.
- The integrated energy meter means that GARO wallboxes fulfil the requirements for grants from the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency.
- A GARO wallbox can be mounted on a wall or a post.
When you want full control of all charging
As the need for vehicle charging at apartment buildings and workplaces increases, you should have strict requirements for the products and services you choose to install for your housing cooperative. If you are seeking a smart, safe and sustainable solution for the future, you should be investing in wallboxes that measure the individual energy consumption of different users. Only then will you be able to charge fairly with itemised rent invoices or salary deductions.
With one or more GARO wallboxes connected to G-Cloud, you gain a central metering service with data that can be broken down by user, charging station and period.
Load balancing to keep fuses from tripping
When you connect the wallboxes to the property’s distribution cabinet, the energy meters are read in real time. Pre-programmed limit values ensure that normal main fuses can handle the task of charging electric vehicles. This is because when combined with dynamic load balancing, the energy meter enables the wallbox to monitor the entire property’s electricity consumption and adapt the charging output accordingly, both smartly and effectively. This means that your main fuse need never be overloaded as the charging current supplied to the car can be varied between 6 A and 32 A. We keep everything simple with GARO wallbox.

New requirements for residential charging infrastructure
New requirements have been introduced for charging stations at residential buildings to enable tenants to charge their electric and hybrid cars where they live. These include the availability of conduits for power cables for future charging posts or the installation of actual charging posts. Sweden’s National Board of Housing, Building and Planning also proposes the introduction of retroactive requirements for any commercial building with a car park offering more than 20 parking spaces either inside the building or on the grounds. These requirements will come into force on 1 January 2025.
