Electric Car Charging At Work: The Next Big Push

If you drive an electric car, the chances are that you do most of your charging at home.

Why wouldn’t you? It’s the place your car probably spends the most time during an average 24-hour period, and it’s the place you can always be sure of a good charge.

But those with longer commutes may be interested in charging at work too–and workplace charging could be the next major push for the electric vehicle industry.

While Silicon Valley companies have been quick to jump on the workplace charging bandwagon, it’s unfortunately not the same everywhere. Few businesses are likely to install a row of chargers–or even a single charger–if there’s just a single employee who needs access to one.

It’s even less likely to happen if that single employee hasn’t yet bought their electric car, but is interested in charging at their workplace–one of the many “chicken and egg” scenarios the electric car world cultivates.
