When will the program begin?

The program is in full swing! Our phased rollout started in summer 2023, initially serving our Early Adopters. With this phase now complete, our attention has shifted to the pilot neighborhood of Fairview.

For those eagerly waiting, all remaining units are reserved for residents on the Waitlist. Secure your spot now for priority access! We'll start contacting Waitlist residents in early 2024, following the order of registration—first come, first served
