In this seminar series our panel of strata experts will explore:

  • Electric Vehicle Safety – What are the risks and how can they be mitigated? EV safety has emerged as a concern for committees charged with exploring future infrastructure requirements for their communities adopting EV’s. The known safety risks associated with EV’s including charging stations and how can they be mitigated are key areas to be discussed.
  • Solar Panels – What is the cost vs benefit and how is installation approved? Viability and the approval process is another area of increasing interest due to ever rising energy costs. Come along to hear about viability considerations for the community and individual owner installs including approval requirements needed for the varying location and supply types.
