More Businesses are Installing Electric Vehicle Charging Stations
Omni recently furnished and installed SemaConnect Series 6 Electric Vehicle Charging Stations as part of a large biopharmaceutical project in Maryland.
As plug-in electric vehicles gain in popularity (analysts expect that EVs will account for 7.6 percent of the car market by 2025), more and more businesses are installing EV charging stations on their properties for the use of employees or residents, or for charging fleet vehicles.
Americans are purchasing more electric vehicles these days due to better affordability,
advancements in EV technology, and more models that can provide more than 200 miles of driving per charge. Better mileage and greater availability of charging stations means there is less “range anxiety”, the fear of running out of juice without having a place to recharge.
Most EV owners recharge overnight at home using a 120-volt or 240-volt charger, but those with access to high-speed chargers at their workplace have the option of recharging in a fraction of the time. Installing workplace charging stations benefits both employers and employees. Businesses can attract and retain better talent, increase employee satisfaction and productivity, and achieve sustainability goals, and workers can save thousands of dollars in fuel costs and cut down on commute times with HOV lane access. Most charging stations, including those made by SemaConnect, allow owners to control who can access the chargers and provide the option to charge users.
