Workplace Charging

Take advantage of all that time and effort you and your employees put in at work and reap the benefits of a workplace electric vehicle charging station. Having an electric vehicle charging station at your workplace generates a sustainable, environmentally-conscious atmosphere while boosting employee morale.

We have organized these workplace charging resources into the six elements that make up a successful workplace charging program:

Gain Support

Gain internal support within your company for workplace charging. Discuss the option of installing an EV charging station at your workplace with your company owner, manager, or human resource director.

Evaluate

Conduct an employee survey and a site electrical system evaluation. Keep in mind, employees may be hesitant now, but within the next few years there will be many more electric vehicles, charging stations, and advances in technology.
