I'm hoping to gather some feedback & guidance from you guys in regards to encouraging employer-provided charging stations. The only thread I could find on this was from 2012. I work for a local government that prides itself on sustainability. We have several solar panel arrays throughout the city with one being situated on a parking garage in our downtown area. Best guess I'd say there are about 300 employee vehicles that park there including one Tesla and two Leafs. I currently park offsite but should be at the top of the waiting list for access by mid summer so then there would be four BEV owners in the garage. We currently have two Leafs, an electric Focus and one Volt in our city fleet that have access to chargers at the top of the garage. The chargers, unfortunately, are restricted and are not able to be used for private charging. I've spoken with our energy coordinator who is in charge of the solar panels as well as our city electrician about this. They both are all for adding additional chargers for employee use, but our fleet manager is the one who apparently has heartburn about it. What are some business case ideas I could present to him to help sway him into adding employee chargers? For the worst case scenario, let's assume all four of us current BEV owners will solely charge at work if given the opportunity. (Although I do hope that there will be more than just four of us in the future) 15,000mi a year x 4 = 60,000 miles 3mi/kW = 20,000kW per year used 220 working days = 90kW per weekday I'm not sure what we pay for electricity from the grid, but we pay 0.064/kW for the electricity from the solar panels. Only about 12% of our annual electricity comes from solar panels on that garage, so that definitely isn't enough to offset the additional cost for employee charging. At a guesstimate of .12/kW from the grid, that would be $10.80/weekday or $2.70/person. We currently subsidize bus passes which are capped at $64/month (~$3/weekday) so that seems comparable to me cost wise. But there is the cost of the actual charger that needs to be considered too. The city vehicles use Chargepoint chargers, so I'd imagine if we were to add employee chargers, they would also be Chargepoints just for simplicity. And a follow-up question to those of you who work at a place where there are more BEV's than charging stations, how do you handle sharing the chargers? There are so many places to eat nearby my office, people just walk to lunch and their cars stay put for 9-10hrs a day. Thanks for any ideas you might have to help me get a few chargers installed!
