Austin EV Charging Station Installation
U.S. Pave Austin is a leader in the rapidly growing electric vehicle (EV) market. Commercial business owners and landlords are increasingly requesting EV charger installations. Having EV chargers on site put a business ahead of the competition by offering a still-overlooked service. As the number of electric cars on the road increase, clients and employees will seek spaces that provide value, convenience and address environmental concerns.
Austin’s EV charging stations can be retrofit into existing parking lots or integrated into new parking lot installations. A great time to install the charging stations is when it is time for parking lot striping renewal. U.S. Pave Austin can help you plan the parking lot with new signage and striping to accommodate the chargers as well as perform the installation. We also offer parking lot repair and maintenance services to monitor your investments. By being on the leading edge of the EV charging station demand and ensuring your lot is always looking its best, your business will entice a wider range of repeat clients.
When planning your EV charger installation in the Austin area, it is also a good idea to take the evolution of The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) into consideration. While the regulations do not currently mention EV charging stations, providing room for an accessible charger now means you won’t have to redo your installation and stripe painting a second time.
EV Charging Station Costs and Rebates
The average range of an EV charger installation can vary between $6,000 and $13,000, though the cost can increase dramatically depending on the current electrical capabilities of your Austin business and the type of charger you choose.
Most commercial businesses will require at least a Level II charger. This type of charger provides 40 miles of travel for each hour of charging time. There are faster chargers on the market, but they come at a significantly increased cost. Slower chargers are also available, but they provide a poor return on investment. They may frustrate your customers with lagging charge times and poor mileage results.
There are currently federal tax credits of up to $30,000 to adopt EV charging station technology. With the decreasing cost of electric vehicles and rising market of younger buyers focused on reducing their carbon footprint, it is likely these incentives will continue. It is also possible further rebates at the state or local level will open up to incentivize owners to install EV chargers. Since they do not guarantee the rebates to continue, now is a good time to consider installation of the EV charging stations.
