If you are thinking about a charger for your garage, there are many products available and we would suggest considering your current electrical distributor and lifestyle requirements. For bigger projects with fast charging solutions and load management, a more sophisticated partner may be required.
Currently all electric vehicles come with a 110-volt compatible, or level 1, home connector kit. Owners can use a 110-volt outlet, but it takes a long time. By installing a level 2 charger connected to a 220-volt outlet you’ll get a much quicker charge.
Some smaller businesses may prefer to have one or two for convenience. However, for larger organizations like fleet operators, multi-unit housing and commercial office space the answer is more complex. It depends on density and dwell time of EVs, charging speed, and other factors.
Most EV’s connected to a standard 110-volt outlet (Level 1) will get a few miles of range per hour of charging, these typically come with the vehicles and can be plugged directly into an existing outlet. For a faster charge homeowners may want a Level 2. Typically, Level 3 (DCFC) are installed at commercial establishments. With a faster charge the cost of equipment and installation will increase.
When scaling your EV charging network consider, electrical infrastructure, dynamic energy management, battery storage and mitigating peak demand charges from the utility companies. Planning ahead is important.
Software applications can not only operate and monitor utilization but can also provide custom accessing solutions, like restrictions, loyalty and allow for easy payments across multiple platforms.
Many states, municipalities and utilities have incentive programs available to offset some, or most of the cost of EV charging equipment and installation. These may come in the form of tax credits or reimbursements.
We provide custom solutions with careful consideration of your business needs to ensure efficient, effective design plans and potential growth requirements to satisfy the highest quality of standards for a simple transition to accommodate the EV revolution.
Charge forward with an electric-powered, intelligent future.
Demand for electric vehicles will grow six-fold from 2021 through 2030 with annual unit sales going from 6.5 million to roughly 40 million over that period. The United States now has about 100,000 public chargers, but this number could increase to about 1.2 million by 2030 to satisfy demand.
