Workplace EV charging does provide value, 

 but how should we approach this?

Electric vehicles (EVs) are becoming more mainstream so people are figuring out how to charge them. For those who can charge their EV in their own garage this is easy, but not everyone can do that. Some plug-in hybrid EV (PHEV) drivers might also have a shorter EV range than their commute and workplace charging could increase their electric vehicle miles traveled. Utility companies can also have seasonal needs to increase load during certain hours of the day and EVs provide a good tool to do that. All of these examples can provide a compelling case for companies to provide workplace charging for their employees.

We have provided information and consulting for workplace charging setups since 2012.  Check out our WPC Simple and Advanced concepts below, download and use our tools. Check out extra resources and make sure that you get your electric utility involved. 

We hope that you can find this information useful and let us know if we can somehow further assist you.
