Multi-Unit Dwelling Frequently Asked Questions

For questions and information applying to all EV charging station programs visit our general FAQ webpage

For the Multi-Unit Dwelling (MUD) EV Charging Program, National Grid defines a MUD as a Residential building or group of buildings which utilize a shared parking lot and/or garage where EV chargers will be wired behind a shared utility meter(s). Properties not designed for long term residences such as hotels, dormitories, barracks, and shelters are ineligible for the MUD EV Charging Program, but potentially eligible for the Public and Workplace EV Charging Program.

To participate in this program, the property must have 5 or more residential units. Properties with 1 to 4 unit(s) should consider the Residential EV Charging Infrastructure Program. The maximum size for a project in the MUD EV Charging Program is $1,000,000 of incentives per year per customer entity. A MUD customer entity is defined as the “legal entity and/or multiple legal entities doing business under the same name providing multi-unit dwelling(s).”

No. Since the EV Chargers will be wired to individual residential accounts held by the individual tenants, this project is not eligible under the MUD EV Charging Program. However, each installation may be eligible to participate in the Residential EV Charging Infrastructure Program.

No. Level 1 ports are not eligible for infrastructure incentives or EVSE rebates in the MUD EV Charging Program.

Yes. DCFC ports are eligible for the MUD EV Charging Program, however they are incentivized at the Level 2 port incentive levels.

No, installations under the MUD EV Charging Program do not need to be publicly accessible, however the EV chargers must be open and available to all residents of the property. If the property chooses to install EVSE at parking spaces that are deeded or assigned to specific residents or drivers, then the property is required to install EVSE at 20% or greater of all of the property’s parking spaces.

No, EVSEs at MUD are not required to be networked. If the customer chooses to provide the EV Chargers with networking, the customer could be eligible for the networking stipend.

EV charging at MUDs can be different in many ways. When compared to public or workplace charging, often the vehicles will reside in the parking spaces longer, so they can be supported with lower capacity (lower kW value) chargers. Additionally, some providers will offer specialized EV charging solutions tailored to MUDs to help property managers provide the benefit to their community, including features like centralized monitoring views, fobs for quick access to charging, load management technologies, and various payment options. Many MUDs will choose EVSE that are also used in public locations and/or make their installations open to the general public.

When compared to residential EV charging, such as single-family homes, MUDs often desire more sophisticated EVSEs, that are designed for more frequent use and have the ability to differentiate between users (often for payment or distributing electricity costs). However, when installing EV charging at assigned or deeded parking spots, an EVSE typically used at a single-family home may be sufficient for the MUD’s needs.To explore more for your property, check out the MUD EV-Ready Site Plans.

The program utilizes the state EJC map for its incentive tier levels for EJC’s, however for specific cases, please contact
