By 2025, 25% of vehicle sales will be electric. Get ahead of the curve by installing an EV charging station at your business.

Reasons Your Business Wants to Install EV Charging Station

Environmental Stewardship
While it may be the simplest reason, businesses have an opportunity to do their part to clean up the environment by making it easier for employees, visitors, and customers to charge their electric vehicles. According to Mashable, one of the most often cited reasons for not buying an EV is range anxiety—fear of not finding a charging station before the vehicle runs out of power. Providing charging stations can encourage employees, visitors, and customers in the area to make their next car an EV.

Part of a Benefits and Amenities Package
According to Energy.gov, access to electric vehicle charging stations at workplaces doubled between 2012 and 2014, and 90% of employers reported their stations were in regular use 5 days a week. Five years later, industry experts and environmentalists alike have discovered the key to putting more electric vehicles (EVs) on the road is to make sure there is enough electric vehicle service equipment (EVSEs) for potential customers to feel certain they will be able to charge their EV regularly.

 According to Green Tech Media, it may come as a surprise to many employers, but EV chargers barely make a dent in an overall electric bill, a general increase of less than 4%.

Corporations and employers are always looking for a benefits package that will attract great employees. Providing electric vehicle charging stations at the workplace as benefits and amenities will attract and retain top talent who are environmentally conscious and comfortable with cutting-edge technology. EV drivers on average are younger, more technology-savvy, and higher income than gas-powered vehicle drivers- employees who can lead a business into the future.

The EV charging stations also send a clear message to staff and customers alike: This business working toward a greener future.
