Level 2 EV Charging
Level 2 EV Chargers are the “type” of charging stations best suited for locations where people work or sleep. A standard level 2 charger will typically provide a full charge in about 6 to 8 hours. Access to level 2 charging stations can be controlled, open or closed. Depending on your business or community, they can accommodate the needs of tenants. Level 2 chargers also provide “power management” functionality that eliminates electrical capacity constraints for years to come.
Eliminate power constraints with power-sharing.
Notify users when it is their turn to charge.
Avoid EV chords laying around the garage.
Bill users checking accounts or credit cards directly for usage.
Easy billing, intuitive user interface, customized options.
Whether you are planning to bill for consumption, upcharge for an electrified parking stall, or provide free charging to EV drivers, many charging stations can accommodate these needs. Manufacturers and software options are available for owners to manage billing, access, waitlists, and consumption settings remotely for ease of use.
More Benefits of EV Charging
EV vehicle sales continue to double every year. Dozens of manufacturers have announced commitments to end their production of vehicles with combustion engines in the next 3-5 years. EV drivers are savvy and soon many potential tenants will only look to live or work where they are able to charge their car. Get ahead of the game and attract potential EV driving tenants by electrifying your garage today!
Offer State of the Art EV Features
Many charging stations offer features like waitlists, direct billing, user interface mobile apps, and cord retractors. In most buildings, choosing chargers that have power-sharing capabilities is a must. Typical level 2 chargers require 50amps of supply. A 200amp panel limits the installation to 4 chargers without software, but with power management, that same panel can support 20 chargers – 5 times as many.
Add Value to Property
Not only can EV chargers add a potential revenue stream to commercial properties, but they also attract high-earning tenants, clients, and visitors. Additionally, tax incentives and rebates provide an attractive investment opportunity, but incentives do not last forever.
