Electric Vehicle Incentives for Building, Businesses, and Parking Lots
Save when making your building or parking lot more attractive and sustainable with EV chargers. Get incentives to offset the infrastructure and operational costs of EV chargers at your building.
Electric vehicle adoption is expected to speed up over the next two decades—the US electric vehicles market is expected to reach 6.9 million unit sales by 2025. Property owners and managers need to be ready to meet the charging needs of the millions of new EV drivers expected to hit the road.
Top reasons to consider installing EV chargers:
- A Boast-worthy Building Dedicated EV charging is an amenity that can entice and retain residents, employees, or customers and demonstrate your commitment to sustainability. Plus, chargers help you earn points towards your Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification.
- Turn Your Parking Lot Into a Paradise Emission- and noise-free EVs make underground and enclosed parking structures much more pleasant. Plus, parking spaces equipped with EV chargers have a higher revenue potential than those without.
