Our project vies for this credit and chose to pursue Option 2 Electric Vehicle Charging Infrastructure.
We need to make 8 parking spaces EV ready. These 8 spaces are scattered 2 spaces per basement parking floor.
In the guidelines, it says: "The raceway shall originate at the main service or subpanel and shall terminate into a listed cabinet, box or enclosure in close proximity to the proposed location of the EV space."
1. Can we just have a sufficient breaker provision inside the typical Electrical Room and with space ready for future installation of panel and containment works (if ever it will be physically pushed-thru), and still be considerably compliance to the LEED?
2. If not, are there parameters for "close proximity" of a subpanel termination?
