Talk to your landlord and see if they'd be willing to split the cost with you to have an electrician run a new wire from your breaker box (service panel) out on to the wall of the building near where you park. Inform them that electric cars will be more prevalent soon and having the new outlet will make his apartment more desirable. for renters, maybe even get $10/month more for the apartment with the charging outlet.
I have a 12-unit building and am already trying to figure out how to get outlets on the exterior for tenants. It shouldn't be more than $100 for me since I know electric code and do my own wiring, which is legal where I am, as long as it's inspected by the local codes enforcement officer.
So the building we live in is a strata. We don't own here, rather we rent from an owner who lives in a different province. The city we live in is, it seems granting money to buildings to retrofit their parking so that EV's can charge, but I asked the strata representative and it seems the city hasn't really moved forward with this yet, so they haven't talked about it since November last year, I believe.
This building is over 15 stories high and the underground parking is 5 or 6 levels, so I am not sure whether it would be possible to just run a cable in order to be able to plug the car in, but I will definitely be contacting them more often to ask about potential solutions. I had thought of reaching out to my landlord to ask to split the cost of installing at least an outlet in our parking space, billed to us, so that we can charge overnight, but with the potential of us moving out of here in the next year or so it seems kind of not worth it...
Thanks for the suggestion though!
