You can now charge your electric car right from your new home.

Around 2012 new homebuilder KB Home seemed to be the first builder to add the option to prewire electric and hybrid plug-in vehicle charging stations in their new homes.

Mid Atlantic Builders in Maryland and Virginia announced in January 2014 that electric-car charging stations are being installed in certain models. Terra View Homes in Canada has partnered with SunCountry Highway, a Saskatoon-based company that sells electric vehicle chargers, to show off a Kitchener, Ontario (west of Toronto) model home equipped with an electric vehicle charging station.
