Businesses and employers provide charging stations for electric vehicles for a variety of reasons. Some benefits and opportunities to attract and retain the best talent, environmentally conscious and advanced technology. Others impress customers and achieve viability goals. The chargers also send a message to employees and customers that the business is supporting a greener future.
If you need a charger at work, schedule it. This type of investment goes through an extensive internal testing process that may involve various departments, including top management. If you are running a small or medium business, the owner can play all of these roles! Big companies have more people to talk to. Prepare the information at your disposal and you will speed up the process.
First, you want to prove to executives that electric vehicle chargers are very important. The first step is to ask employees if they would like to add an electric car to their garage or parking lot at work.When you ask if an employee drives an electric vehicle, ask questions such as. There are many drivers who would like to have an electric car but do not believe it is possible. The biggest reason consumers avoid electric vehicles is the fear of range, or the fear of running out of power before a charger is found. Knowing that chargers are readily available five days a week can influence colleagues in their decision to buy a car and add numbers to your research.
If employees park in city garages, or if the business has many visitors or customers, it may also be useful to include visitors and guests in the study. Consider growth in the electric vehicle sector. The number of electric car owners is increasing by 3-10% annually, and from 2019 this figure has grown by 40%. The number of EVs in offices is growing at a similar rate, and it can be assumed that more employees will have EVs next year.
Second, your company must decide whether it will charge you for using EVSE. Some companies choose to install free chargers. EV chargers and other high-tech amenities attract young, educated and technically trained employees. If your business has high-income customers, offering free visitor charging can be very beneficial.
While some business owners may think that installing an EVSE in a garage will result in high energy bills, the fact that EV chargers have little to no impact on overall energy bills may come as a surprise to many employers, according to Green Tech Media.
Third, plan for the future. Planning for additional electrical infrastructure during installation can save your business when it comes time to install more chargers. As soon as the preparation process for installing the chargers begins, prepare twice as many installations to install them now. So most of the work is already done!
If you install four chargers, you cook eight, but you only pay to install four. This slightly increases the installation cost. However, if you go back and add the other four chargers in the future, most of the costly work will already be done and the cost of installing new chargers could be cut in half.
Next, always choose the right network! The ENERGY5 network allows the host to see how chargers are being used, how long they last, how much power they can use, and most importantly, who can charge them for power usage. Our network also allows hosts to get the most out of their chargers, provides access to customizable charging information reports, and ensures that they are free from contamination.
Finally, there are other details that the administration will want to discuss before making a decision. What happens if everyone wants to charge at the same time? How do you convince employees to move already charged vehicles so that more people use chargers and businesses can make more money? An electronic waiting list can help indicate what's next in the series and send a message to employees when it's time to move the vehicle. Employers may want to hire valet drivers to move vehicles without disrupting employees' work hours.
Using ready-made information to communicate with managers can help promote and expedite the installation of EVSE in the workplace.
