The EMPOWER Workplace Charging Project is catalyzing workplace charging (WPC) adoption by connecting workplaces nationwide with local workplace charging coaches, reducing barriers through education, and providing access to a centralized library of helpful workplace-focused resources.
The EMPOWER WPC Project is supporting and recognizing employers who pledge to expand access to EVs for their employees, regardless of their organization's size or progress. EMPOWER provides a guided path to effective workplace EV installations and employee-facing programs.
Engage over 2,000 workplaces nationwide
Secure pledges from over 650 workplaces committed to increasing access to EVs for their employees
Catalyze the installation of over 3,500 charging ports nationwide and direct over 40% of project benefits to workplaces located in, or employing members of, historically disinvested and pollution-overburdened communities
ABOUT WORKPLACE CHARGING
Transportation is electrifying, and today's drivers need access to charging where they live, where they play, and most importantly, where they work. As federal, state, and regional investments continue to build toward an electric-fueled future, where to plug in is a question most EV drivers need to face.
Workplace charging provides great convenience for EV owners. In some cases, it is essential for commuters who do not have access to charging at home. As an employer, you have a unique opportunity to capitalize on federal, state, and local utility-level support for workplace charging and provide enhanced employee benefits while demonstrating your workplace’s leadership and commitment to sustainability.
