Electric Vehicle (EV) Charge Stations
With the growing popularity of energy efficient electric vehicles (EVs), there is an expanding need for widely distributed and publically accessible charging stations.
Why Electric Vehicles and Charging Stations?
According to research, the annual sales of electric vehicles rose over 400% from 2011 to 2013. The rise in drivers choosing sustainable methods of transportation shows a clear need for available charging stations.
Types of EV Stations
We offer two main types of EV stations: the Slow Charge and the Fast Charge. As the names suggest, the Slow Charge, also known as a level 2 charge station, offers a slower charge of 240 volt AC. The Slow Charge is most often used in residential properties for drivers of hybrid/electric cars. On the other hand, the Fast Charge, also known as a level 1 charge station, offers a faster charge of 500 volt DC. The Fast Charge station often charges a small fee for use and recharges the vehicle within a half hour. Safety features cause the EV station to automatically shut off once the electric vehicle is fully charged.
Financial and Environmental Benefits
EV charge stations offer considerable financial and sustainable benefits to your home or business. By offering EV charging stations, businesses, schools, residential communities, and curbside parking areas encourage the use of electric or hybrid vehicles, which in turn may raise the profile of the area. Patrons may opt to stay longer at a business with EV charge stations, which can translate to more generated revenue. Electric vehicles support a true return on investment: imagine never again having to worry about gas, oil, or coolant, transmition, or engine upkeep. Therefore, the installation of EV charge stations will positively impact the growth of an eco-friendly environment. The inclusion of EV charge stations in parking areas, storefronts, schools, or businesses supports the overall goal of green sustainability and fosters a more independent relationship with energy.
Tax Credits and Benefits
Past tax credits for the installation of EV charge stations have resulted in a 30% deduction. To learn more about current federal and local tax credits and rebates, contact SuperGreen Solutions.
