I assume you mean level 2 chargers. We used grants to install two level 2 
chargers at minimal cost using an existing conduit to one of our parking lot 
lamps. The electrical use for each is monitored and the four EV owners in the 
community simply split the annual cost amongst them. Last year there were three 
of them and the total was about $500 between them.
