Nationwide Workplace Charging Project.
EMPOWER is a government-funded national initiative that promotes workplace charging for electric vehicles (EVs) while prioritizing equity and inclusivity. Our name and our mission stand for Equitable Mobility Powering Opportunities for Workplace Electrification Readiness.
Our EV-friendly workplace charging program supports sustainable transportation and helps reduce carbon emissions, while offering convenient charging options to promote eco-friendly practices in the workplace. We support and recognize employers who pledge to provide EV charging access, regardless of their organization's size or progress. EMPOWER provides guided path to EV installations.

SUPPORT & ASSISTANCE
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 topic most EV drivers are familiar with.
Workplace charging (WPC) provides great convenience for electric vehicle (EV) owners and in some cases, is essential for commuters that do not have access to charging at home. As an employer, you have a unique opportunity to capitalize on Federal, State, and local utility support for workplace charging while demonstrating your workplace’s corporate leadership and sustainability commitment while providing enhanced employee benefits.
