Installing EV Charging Stations
What You Need to Know About Installing Commercial Electric Vehicle Charging Stations
While purchasing a car, many younger drivers are now focusing more on the environmental footprint of the vehicle than anything else. With the protection of the planet through reduced emissions becoming the priority, it is not surprising that the global sales of electric vehicles are continuously rising. Tesla has recently manufactured its millionth vehicle, and over 1,400,000 plug-in electric cars are owned by Americans alone.
Since December 2017, 87% of the 20,000 charging sites in the United States were available for public use. This number, however, is incredibly low in comparison to the number of conventional gas stations existing in the country. While many people are considering investments in commercial electric vehicle charging stations, it is necessary for them to be aware of different aspects of these stations before doing so.
The main question that arises is where one should install electric vehicle charging stations. The areas in which these stations are in highest demand are places that are frequently visited by people. This is because people prefer charging their cars while they run errands in order to save time. These include shopping areas, public parking lots and garages, city centers, as well as central business districts. Additionally, they can be installed in residential areas, especially in multifamily properties, as well as on highways.
