Michael Lenz and his team are not giving up: In order to make the underground car parks in the region ready for the mobility transition, the Zornedinger and his colleagues are still looking for owners’ associations that are interested in electrifying their parking spaces. Lenz upgraded his own garage on Herzogplatz with charging points for electric cars a long time ago, and it has since served as a reference project for similar projects. Now the Zornedinger has written a compact guide that is intended to make this future investment attractive to other residential communities.
There are no costs for the consultation itself; Lenz and his team offer it on a voluntary basis. A change in the law is now playing into the experts’ hands, making it easier for owners’ associations to set up a charging infrastructure in their garage. Previously, the veto of a few residents could prevent an entire project. “Adjustments and harmonizations in tenancy law have ensured that tenants can now install a wallbox much more easily,” says Lenz – and he and his team want to use this fact for an advisory offensive.
Michael Lenz has created a guideline for the course of the discussions, which begins with an exchange about the general conditions. All owners and landlords will then be comprehensively informed, including an excursion to the reference facility at Zornedinger Herzogplatz. “Together with the initiators, we are developing an individual concept for the underground car park,” explains Lenz. This should include a suitable charging solution for the respective location with all the opportunities, risks and costs, which will then be presented to interested parties in the community of owners. If everyone agrees, offers can be obtained and evaluated based on this concept – a process in which Lenz and his team also support. The last step is the final decision and implementation of the project.
Michael Lenz has already played through numerous such scenarios. The charging infrastructure is not always actually implemented in the end. But Zornedinger is not deterred by this, as he believes there is no alternative to the mobility transition. “I tell people very clearly: the earth is smoking and you are driving your diesel for a walk,” said Lenz in an interview with the newspaper a few months ago South German newspaper. In fact, thanks to the free advice, he and his team have a powerful argument in hand so that property communities can deal with the matter without obligation. On the open market, such concepts alone cost around 5,000 euros.
For his commitment, Michael Lenz received the district’s energy award
And according to Lenz, the actual costs for installing the charging infrastructure are also limited. The cabling of an underground car park costs around 500 per person. If an owner then decides to equip his parking space with a wallbox, another around 2000 euros will be due. Thanks to Lenz’s persistence, there are now facilities in Unterbiberg, Höhenkirchen, Puchheim and Vaterstetten. For his commitment, the Zornedinger was awarded the Ebersberg district energy prize a year ago together with his colleagues Reiner Gerke and Reinhard John.
