    I read the news that Tesla is giving away free chargers to employers to facilitate work place EV charging (Tesla launches a new ‘Workplace Charging’ program to supply free charging stations to businesses). My current employer (Capital One) leases a few buildings in the area, that means to get the chargers to install in the garage, that would have to be realized by the building management company. I am needing some ideas on getting more Tesla chargers installed at work place garage. TIA!

    Get a job offer from an employer that offers EV charging, that should do it ;) Or if you are the man, you can sell them the idea ;)

    You either need to convince them:

    1. That it's good because it's green.
    2. That it will make points with clients.
    3. That it is a good perc to offer employees.
    or
    4. Get the boss to buy himself a Tesla!

    I would get in touch of whoever is in charge of your environmental program and let them know you would like one. Since they are most likely at corporate you could be their local advisor and help them fill out https://www.tesla.com/charging-partners#apply

    Thanks for the great ideas! I am an engineer at heart, and I know how to convince my code works way better than anything else. Please keep them coming.

    Unless you live 100 miles from work you don't really need a charger at work.

    That's over simplifying things a bit there...

    Take your boss for a drive in your Tesla, he'll then buy one for him/herself and install charging ;)

    Why do you need a Tesla charger? We have two of the standard chargers at work and it works fine with the adapter. The company behind them is SemaConnect.
