EVCS Makes Hosting Chargers Easier Than Ever

December 1, 2022

Site hosts are an integral part of the EV revolution. They are the supermarkets, restaurants, hotels, gyms, office buildings, movie theaters, parking lots, retail stores and municipal properties – among others – that install and accommodate EV chargers for public use. Without these green warriors, progress would not be possible. Every day, we’re hard at work educating potential new site hosts on 1) how simple it is to have our chargers installed and 2) the key benefits of doing so. However, with so many still unaware, we thought we’d take a moment to summarize both the process and the perks!

Our Complete Turnkey Solution

We handle every aspect of the installation process so that site owners have to do nothing but sign off and allow us access to the property. We will install up to 10 Level 2 and/or two Level 3 chargers per site depending on the owner’s needs. The process itself includes five basic steps:

1) Site Assessment – Our knowledgeable staff will consult with the site host on everything from local compliance issues to design requirements to implementation obstacles to ensure viability.

2) Permitting – We maintain up-to-date intel on all local regulations and requirements so that site hosts don’t have to. We obtain the necessary permits, manage all site inspections and keep a complete master file of all pertinent records.

3) Engineering and Civil Work – Our experienced team of civil and electrical engineers will draft the installation plans, determine whether utility upgrades are needed, and handle all trenching, backfilling and pavement work.

4) Charger Procurement and Installation – We have relationships with this best charger manufacturers in the business. We’ll source, install, wire, test and commission each unit so it’s ready for operation.

5) Charger Management – Our state-of-the-art networking software makes it a breeze to track charger usage, manage operations (even during peak demand windows) and ensure hardware health.

Okay, by this point, many site hosts are thinking, “This is all well and good, but how much will it cost me?” The answer: Nothing. EVCS is able to tap into state and federal subsidies that front the cost of installation so that the property owner doesn’t pay a penny. And if that sounds great, the benefits are even better.

Key Benefits for Site Hosts

In addition to being the proud purveyor of top-notch Level 2 and 3 charging stations, site hosts enjoy a number of other hard-to-beat gains, including the following:

1) New Revenue – Site hosts share in the recurring revenue generated from every kilowatt-hour of electricity sold. Over time, this can add up to a significant new income stream with very little effort on the site host’s part.

2) Free Maintenance – We offer five full years of upkeep, service and repairs, significantly beating the average one- to three-year warranty, according to EV Safe Charge, offered by most manufacturers.

3) Electrical Upgrades – If the property requires an electrical upgrade for installation, we handle it free of charge, saving owners with older, outdated electric systems potentially thousands of dollars.

4) Free Publicity – Our mobile app and website allows EV drivers to quickly locate the property and determine what type of chargers are there. As such, site hosts inevitably begin attracting new customers from a fast-growing market segment.

5) Environmental Health – Every charger installed is one more step toward creating a cleaner planet with fewer tailpipe emissions and less reliance on fossil fuels. Moreover, an EVCS charger on the property lets others know the site host is just as committed to the environment as we are!

After all this, the bigger question for property owners is not, “Should I become a site host?,” but rather, “Why didn’t I become one sooner?”

The Race to Democratize Charging Infrastructure

According to McKinsey & Company, “As the number of EVs on the road increases, annual demand for electricity to charge them would surge from 11 billion kWh now to 230 billion kWh in 2030… Modeling indicates that nearly 30 million chargers would be needed to deliver so much electricity in that year. While most of these chargers would be installed at residences, 1.2 million would [need to] be public chargers.” More importantly, these public chargers must be targeted to drivers of all ages, genders, races, cultures, income levels and geographic segments. As such, EVCS has identified three primary areas necessary to increasing the democratization of charging infrastructure:
