Schneider Electric Video 2 (Text Version)
Bridget McNulty, Electric Vehicle Marketing and Communication: So here in the Schneider Electric Rhode Island office, we've had two dual charging stations for almost two years now, since fall of 2011, and they're free for employees to use and hopefully incentivize them to purchase their own EV and feel comfortable that they can charge up at work with no range anxiety.
Schneider is a global company. We have EV charging throughout the world but in the U.S. specifically we do offer charging at sixteen of our facilities currently. Most of them have dual stations so multiple parking spots that can charge for free. We have even more locations that we plan to roll out throughout the coming years.
Nicolas Cindric, Vice President – Recurring Services Business Deployment: Schneider Electric, so we have had a car here and I have had the opportunity to test drive the car for a few days, weekend and then find that I loved it and very convenient to plug it here so that's the way I started being interested and finally decided to get one. Worrying about the range of the car, I don't think, was the real issue. However, the fact that Schneider Electric, so we have the charging stations definitely contributed a lot to make my decision and go with an electric car.
Bridget McNulty:Right now how it works is the individual facility manager and also our U.S. facility manager have been helping to install and implement the stations but we're hoping that the Workplace Charging pledge is actually going to help us have more of a streamlined approach so we can actually coordinate it at a country level to roll it out to multiple facilities.
