Countdown to Earth Day: How to charge your electric car when you live in an apartment

More and more cities are now adding EV provisions into multi-family requirements. However that does nothing to address the issue with the hundreds of thousands of existing apartment complexes.

I have to take it back in every day because I got complaints about it hanging out the window. If I was living there, I would consider talking with the HOA about installing a charge station (they actually have a decomissioned car was spot that would be perfect) but probably I would have to foot the bill to install it. Although in the Seattle area, they might qualify for a free charger.
