Workplace Charging

Workplace charging Is one of the most effective ways to promote the adoption of electric vehicles.  The U.S. Department of Energy found that employees are six times more likely to purchase an EV when charging is available at work.

Benefits of workplace charging include extended range and zero tailpipe emissions for electric commuters, points toward corporate sustainability and LEED certification for buildings, and increased attraction and retention of talent for employers. According to MIT Sloan Management Review, more employees today want to work at companies with a commitment to sustainability and innovation.

The Colorado EV Wired Workplaces program recognizes workplace charging efforts with state and national recognition, a ceremony, and a plaque signed by Gov. John Hickenlooper.  The recognition part of the program is currently being evaluated but the Colorado Energy Office continues to promote this important practice through Refuel Colorado and Charge Ahead Colorado.  Let us know what you think about workplace charging.
