EV Charging in the workplace is a way to bolster your company’s sustainability commitments and it is also important to the future of your employee benefits package. As automobile manufacturers continue to execute their pledged shifts in future sales to electric vehicles, providing access to charging infrastructure is one way that employers can motivate employees to purchase or lease EVs themselves. When it comes to recruiting and retaining top talent, this could not only enhance your image – it might be the difference maker for some potential recruits.
You may have heard that chargers are very expensive, and if you install a DC Fast Charger the equipment and installation can easily exceed $100,000 for a single unit. For many workplace applications, level 2 charging can be sufficient. Level 2 chargers will provide a substantial charge for most of today’s EV’s in a matter of 3-4 hours. An installation of four level 2 charging points can often be completed for less than $30,000. Of course, each application is dependent on access to available power, specific location, and charger type. Charging equipment is also evolving very quickly, so if you have considered it in the past, there may be new options available.
