EV Charging Stations: The Future is Electric

Electric vehicle (EV) charging is the way of the future—are you ready? Advanced Energy Group can help your facility adapt by installing EV charging stations to prepare for this rapidly accelerating industry.

The Rising Popularity of Electric Vehicles

In recent years, electric vehicles have spiked in popularity and 2021 will be a crucial year for growth. Automakers have invested billions of dollars into the industry and that capital is starting to show in the announcement of mainstream electric vehicles.

You can anticipate faster growth in the coming years with legislation at both the state and federal levels. Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker’s “Massachusetts 2050 Decarbonization Roadmap” requires all new cars sold in the state to be electric by the year 2035. At the same time, without many specifics, the Biden administration has included the transition in their plan to fight climate change.

How Will EV Charging Help Your Business?

All of these changes are putting pressure on the nation’s power grid to support a much needed infrastructure. That’s where AEG comes in. We can provide services to any facility interested in integrating a charging location, such as:

  • Commercial/retail businesses
  • Municipalities
  • Schools

Retail properties can promote the benefits of EV chargers in an effort to appeal to more customers. Other benefits businesses can earn, include:

  • Retaining customers for longer periods (while they charge their vehicles)
  • Attracting new customers
  • New revenue stream

As the technology advances, we can also educate you on the various electric vehicle smartphone apps that are available. These apps help “drive” potential customers to your location by populating your station into a map database, allowing all drivers to locate you easily.
