Why You Should Install an EV Charging Station on Your Property
You and many others in the community purchased your electric vehicles for their countless environmental and practical benefits. Electric cars pollute significantly less than conventional fuel-burning vehicles, offer a driving experience like no other, reduce noise pollution, and much more.
With all the good an electric car does for the world, you shouldn’t have to face an uphill battle to use it. You should be able to drive it with ease and charge it without issue—and that’s what many people do with an at-home charging station.
Installing an EV charging station at your home or in your company parking lot can make a world of difference, and we’re here to tell you why.
In this blog post, B & R Electric’s electrical experts will outline the reasons why you should install an EV charger on your own property. Read on and be sure to direct any questions to our team by calling (905) 814-1881.
Save Money with At-Home EV Chargers
Everyone is always looking for ways to save money—even if they’re also concerned with protecting the environment. As great as electric cars are, owners of these vehicles don’t often reap the financial rewards they should. Charging prices usually vary from one public EV car charging station to another, and more often than not, these rates are higher than they should be.
When you install an EV charger on your own property, you can forgo the charging prices altogether. You’ll just have to worry about your monthly utility costs, which should be much lower than privately-owned charging station fees.
Save Time by Charging at Home
If you’re already an electric car owner, you know how much time you spend driving through the city looking for an available charging station. All of this wasted time makes a significant dent in your daily schedule. In a world as busy as ours, you shouldn’t have to allot time to search for an electric car charging station but should be able to charge your vehicle in the private space you call your own.
All that extra commuting is never great for your vehicle, either. As dependable as your electric car might be, you don’t want to drive it needlessly. Having a car charger on your property will spare you from putting unnecessary mileage on the vehicle.
Access Potential Tax Credits
As electric cars become increasingly popular, many property owners are considering installing EV chargers on their premises, and governments are investing in their success. Did you know that there are tax credits available for those who install an electric car charger on their property?
EV chargers can be installed on both residential and commercial properties, and the tax credit applies to both types of installations. The credit is worth 30 percent of the cost of installing an EV charger, up to a maximum of $1,000. To put this in more straightforward terms, if you install a charger that costs $3,000, you can claim a credit of $900 on your taxes.
Safe and Reliable Charges
If you’ve ever driven around the city looking for a car charger, you’ve probably noticed just how inconsistent the charging stations are. Some charging ports might charge your vehicle to 100 percent in the standard period of time, while others fall short in unpredictable ways. Wouldn’t it be nice to get the same reliable charge every time?
You get consistency and convenience every single time with an at-home EV charger. You won’t see those erratic fluctuations in power, and any time troubles do arise, you’ll just have to call your local electrician.
Personalized Controls and 24-hour Support
Do you want an extra layer of security with your car charging station? Do you want to grant access to the employees who visit your property on a daily basis? When you install your very own car charger, you can customize the access controls and charging parameters however you wish.
What’s more, you’ll always have access to a support team whenever you find yourself in need of assistance. The best car charging systems on the market today have around-the-clock tech support, ensuring that help is never far away.
