San Diego Gas & Electric Video (Text Version)
Narrator: Having a workplace charging stations is a great way to encourage employees to switch to electric vehicles but there are a few things you may want to consider. There are several companies offering charging equipment and there's a wide range of costs but generally the faster the system charges the higher the cost. Time of day also affects charging costs and it's important to understand how demand charges and time-of-use pricing works. If you decide to offer free charging for your employees be sure to talk with your tax experts and if you decide to charge employees or customers talk with your equipment manufacturer about options for processing payment transactions. Also be sure to check with federal and state agencies for available incentives. SD&GE doesn't sell or install vehicle chargers but a qualified licensed electrician can help you find the right equipment manufacturer for your particular needs.
