The appearance and instant popularity of the Tesla Model S in 2010 changed the way Silicone Valley attracts and retains top talent. The sleek, sporty, and loaded with tech Model S needs a place to plug in and recharge. With employees choosing electric over gas-powered vehicles, Silicone Valley leaders quickly began installing EV chargers.
Today, EV chargers are becoming standard at most business complexes, so doesn’t it make sense to install a commercial EV charging system on your multi-tenant property? It’s estimated EV adoption will increase around 25% annually for the next five years.
Incentives are Encouraging the Move Forward
Installing a commercial EV charging system can be cost-prohibitive, especially across multiple properties. To help offset these costs, commercial property owners can take advantage of the state, federal, manufacturer, and utility incentives. Supportive regulations are also helping, along with EV charging systems that allow for revenue streams. You can charge a fee for non-tenants while keeping it a perk for residents. Delaying installation can see a loss in your property’s value and its ability to attract and retain tenants.
Owners of commercial properties in multiple cities may not have a choice. Data compiled by the Electrification Coalition states 30 cities have regulations in place regarding EV chargers for commercial properties. The regulations require these properties to have EV charging stations on site. These city requirements are a quick and easy way for them to increase EV charging.
Commercial real estate agencies that are interested in starting a new revenue stream need to invest in an EV charger operating system that allows for multisite management. Apogee Charging Stations offers the Noodoe EV OS, one of the most advanced, customizable operating systems available on the market. You can learn more here.
