They also serve as a signal to society about respect for the environment and strict adherence to public health. Potential tenants are also left with the impression of a luxurious and sophisticated home.
Despite the popularity of public electric vehicles, 80% of electric vehicles are paid for at home. For those who live in apartments, apartment buildings, or other apartments, installing a home car charger is more of a challenge than simply installing a charger. As an installation manager, you have the opportunity to provide your occupants with the amenities they want and at the same time add value to your building.
The first step is to understand what the demand for EVSE is in your area. When it comes to providing charging solutions, the need can be double that. Other employees or residents of crowded areas may be interested in installing chargers. It can also be helpful to talk to employees and conduct a survey. How many employees, residents and visitors of the city already have electric cars, and how many are thinking about purchasing them? Figuring out how many drivers already need charging stations and how many drivers will need them in the future will help plant owners determine how many they need.
Because EVSE can be a significant investment, always check for federal, state, and local tax credits and rebates to see if you can get investment performance.
The next step is to choose a placement point. Do not place the charger in a liquid or flooded area. The most efficient locations are near easily accessible electrical panels or close to entrances.
In addition, as the installation manager, you must choose whether to install the charger in the parking lot of the tenant who requests it, or install a public charger for the entire building. The possibilities are endless.
Installing EVSE doesn't always go smoothly for those trying to do it themselves, and opting for a networked system can help you find traps before they happen. For example, it is illegal to install a charger in an entire building or apartment building that is not connected to the grid. The reason for this is that only the grid allows owners to charge for the electricity they use.
Licensing also usually delays work, as is the case with many types of chargers; Everything runs smoothly when someone knows the secrets of the installation.
