Payback is a switch: Business case for EV charging

John Anton is a small-business owner in Tempe, Ariz., with an environmental consciousness that is growing but has its limits.

In 2009 his company, DesignAShirt, scored a contract with Arizona State University to provide the school with all its shirt design needs. There was a hitch: The ASU Global Institute of Sustainability required that the company use only water-based ink, which is less noxious to the environment. Anton agreed.

Not long after, the sustainability folks came back and encouraged him to go solar, and he came to see the economic—as well as the environmental—benefit of that, and the company put up more than 200 solar panels.

More recently, they came and suggested installing charging stations for electric vehicles in his parking lot. “I said, ‘Now hold on a minute,'” Anton recalled.
