    Hello all,

    I own a office building and the closest parking spot to the building is reachable by the wall charger if I placed around the location shown on the photo. The charger will be used mainly for my own car while I work in this building. But I do not mind sharing to my customer and other people who find my building online (more exposure for business) for free. But I am trying to figure out what is the best to setup the wall charger.

    Do you think that is the best location I can setup the wall charger? Or are there other methods?

    I would probably mount it on a pedestal and run PVC conduit underground. A wood pressure treated post is the simplest. Companies also sell metal posts specifically for this purpose.

    You can search this forum for various impementations.

    I found this solution to be very nice looking.

    May be you could use a cabinet and put a logo of your business on the front door.
