Installing workplace charging can be a sign of corporate leadership and innovation, demonstrating a willingness to adopt advanced technology.
Providing PEV charging can enhance corporate sustainability efforts, contribute to a building’s LEED Certification, and reduce an employer’s indirect emissions from employee commutes. The availability of PEV charging can be a strong addition to an organization’s larger portfolio, particularly if the organization has existing objectives related to employee commuting practices, greenhouse gas reductions, and/or transportation emissions reductions.
Workplace charging can serve as a valuable employee benefit by helping employees to extend the electric driving range of their plug-in vehicles and thereby reduce their commuting costs. The availability of charging conveys that your organization stays on the leading edge of technological development, even to workers who don’t drive PEVs. And employers that offer charging may be better positioned to attract and retain employees who do drive PEVs.
Providing workplace charging can help demonstrate an organization’s leadership in supporting cutting-edge, clean transportation technologies to customers, consumers, and the surrounding community.
Tenant Attraction and Retention:
Building owners who offer workplace charging at their facilities send the message that they are interested in providing smart, proactive solutions for their tenants’ present and future needs. Entering this fast-growing niche market today may yield significant benefits in the long run.
