Nissan, City Ventures Pre-Wiring Homes For EV Chargers


Nissan Americas and City Ventures have announced a cooperative project to pre-wire 190 Southern California townhomes currently under construction for electric-vehicle (EV) chargers.

Under the program, all homes in nearly every new City Ventures development will include pre-wired parking spaces or garages that allow for the easy installation of a Level II (240 V / 40 Amp) EV charging dock, the companies explain.

For the first phase of the plan, residents will be able to install home-charging equipment in single-family or multifamily garage locations at City Ventures' developments in Signal Hill (54 homes, 108 parking spaces) and Santa Barbara (48 homes, 100 parking spaces). A third location in Alhambra will also include mixed-use and/or public-use garages (88 homes, 423 total parking spaces) as part of the venue's retail layout. City Ventures plans to roll out this approach to all of its new communities going forward.

Nissan has consulted with City Ventures to exchange technical and charging information to help satisfy construction needs and to better align with consumer charging habits. In addition, the two firms are discussing potential cross-promotional opportunities.
