Twenty years ago, we wouldn’t be talking about electric car charging stations for business owners, but it’s a new time now, and it really is something to consider if you own a business. Here’s why!
As of 2016, there were over a half-million electric cars sold in the United States, and the number is rising rapidly. There are over thirty electric car models currently being made by twelve car manufacturers, with plans to make more models in the next few years. Toss in tax advantages for electric car owners and car manufacturers, and it is easy to understand why electric car sales are increasing rapidly. The environmental movement is growing, and people want eco-friendly transportation.
The only problem so far with the movement, other than the fact that most electric cars have a limited distance they can travel on a charge, is the fact that there are so few electric car charging stations available in most cities. It is a problem voiced by every electric car owner you speak with, and it will continue to be a problem until businesses come to the realization that it is in their interest to add car charging stations to the vicinity of their business. Cities, of course, must shoulder some of the responsibility, making it easier to add these conveniences.
The commercial suite dilemma: being ready for the future!
What are the benefits which await a forward-thinking business?
It doesn’t take a genius to figure that one out.
If the choice, for a customer, is between you and a competitor, and that customer knows you have an electric car charging station, and they have an electric car, guess who gets the business? If you advertise that you have a station, car owners will make note of that and eventually business will come your way. Environmentalists will favor you, and your location will be put on watch lists for the environmental movement.
And all because you had the foresight to add an electric car charging station!
What does it cost to do so? Whatever the cost, and that cost will vary according to your area, it will be lowered because of tax credits received from the government. This is really a win-win situation for a business owner.
One such business owner who has shown an aptitude to see the future and act on it is Ron Sturgeon, the owner of a new business park in Fort Worth called Box Office Warehouse Suites. Not only has Mister Sturgeon added electric car charging stations in Fort Worth to his business park, but his entire business park is made from shipping containers, the first and only such business park in the North Fort Worth area.
Environmentalists, take note!
Shipping containers are the new flagships for the environmental movement with regards to construction. Whereas traditional wood frame buildings need, on average, over 16,000 board feet of lumber simply for the framing, buildings made from shipping containers need none of that lumber. They are eco-friendly, long-lasting, and as flexible as flexible can be.
