Electric vehicles are here to stay. What used to be a niche market for urban commuters with limited needs has morphed into an ever-expanding variety of electric-powered vehicles from sport cars to semis. According to industry sources, 90% of commercial fleet managers believe electric vehicles are the wave of the future, so now’s the time to get ready and plan ahead.
Planning Charging Stations for Businesses
Operating an EV fleet comes with lots of benefits, including:
- 44% reduction in fuel costs compared to petrochemicals
- 44% reduction in maintenance costs due to simpler vehicle design
- Improved operating efficiency
- 37% reduction in carbon footprint
- Local and federal rebates and incentives
- Local and federal tax benefits.
Fleet charging installations represent a considerable investment, though. Besides the charging stations and their direct costs, installing EV charging stations means running new conduit and wiring and service upgrades.
Careful, strategic planning and implementation of charging needs helps assure that your ROI will be optimized. It helps you make the right decisions on charging point hardware. It helps you avoid unnecessary costs in electrical equipment, grid connections, and installation labor.
EV fleet management software can integrate with legacy systems for peak operating efficiency. There are simulation models to help placement of charging infrastructure and software systems that automate operations, testing, and maintenance.
It’s a complicated process that calls for expert implementation and management.
