Denver EV Charging Station Installation
As sales of electric vehicles continue to increase, providing electric charging stations for your clients provides a value-added service that will entice them to your business. Charging stations for employees can help you attract top-tier talent, giving you an additional edge over the competition.

There’s no better way to send this message than with EV charger stations front and center in your parking lot.
U.S. Pave Denver recognizes how the fast-growing market of electric vehicles will impact commercial businesses. Gas stations, hotels, restaurants, apartment buildings and many other high-traffic workplaces will be vying for chargers as critical pieces of equipment. We can help you be a leader in this area with our EV charging station installation.
Cost of EV Charging Stations
The average cost to install an EV charging station is misleading, as many factors can cause prices to be significantly higher. Instead of the average cost, it is more appropriate to consider the average range, which better reflects the variances in installations and the quality of chargers available. With that in mind, the average range can be anywhere from $6,000 to $13,000, including installation.
Costs are influenced by several factors, including the age of the infrastructure at your location and the type of charger you need. If your primary client is charging their electric vehicle overnight, you can get by with a slower charger. If your clients are stopping for only a short time, a higher-level charger will be required. Currently, most commercial businesses are best suited with a Level II charger, providing 40 miles of travel time for each hour of charge. There are faster-charging units on the market, but they significantly raise the purchase price.
Offset Your Upfront Costs
Many states have adopted, or are adopting, incentives for electric vehicle infrastructure. Federal incentives can offset a considerable portion of your investment. Currently, Federal tax credits of up to $30,000 are available to help businesses adopt this technology. Based on the ever-increasing demand for electric vehicles and the chargers they require, these incentives may be extended or increased. Since these incentives are guaranteed to be available through 2021, now is the best time to get your chargers installed.
Regulations and ADA Compliance
Several regulations must be followed with EV charging installations, and U.S. Pave Denver can streamline the process. Businesses must observe state and local parking and signage regulations, electrical regulations, and many other rules. These will be taken care of with your installation.
Current regulations under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) do not include specific rules for EV charging stations. However, it is recommended you provide accessible stations. It will be more cost-effective in the long run, as the regulations will eventually catch up as more stations are installed across the country, and more electric vehicles are purchased.
