Everyone wants to know the cost upfront, bit to get the RIGHT answer you’ll need to do a property evaluation.  Even in the worst case scenarios, property owners are still in the positive and those profits will eventually grow as the consumer market changes.

Here’s a standard scenario to give you some idea of what costs are involved.

Charging stations- The average charging station will cost you around $1,300 to $1,500 with higher rates for fleet or heavy industrial stations.   Currently, there are rebates ranging from $1,500 to $2,500 per port installed.  Every county, state, and municipality offers its own incentives.  Programs for multi-family dwellings are different from pure commercial or industrial, but in most cases these cover the cost of the charging stations.

Installation-  This will be where an electrical contractor will survey your property and develop program and install.  In many cases these costs are manageable out of pocket but is dependent on what is found in the survey. Larger projects have access to federal and state incentive loans.   The state of California has an aggressively catered loan with cash pay outs when combined with the installation can greatly reduce the cost of the investment.

The bottom line-  To get the right answer you will need to have us come out, survey the site, ascertain the needs of your property, and determine what rebates, tax credits, and incentive programs you qualify for.

To coordinate many of the cost we can coordinate you with financing specialists listed in the Deeper Dive links below.

Most properties will require some limited work to upgrade parking spaces into EV.  Building permits will vary  depending on your location and your type of property. If you have an older property you might need to upgrade some of the electrical conduits and power buses.  Getting up to code is the first step in installing new systems. Location can have a huge affect on the type of charger, if you are trying to develop traffic to your location or create incentives for your current residents or clients.

What kind of charging stations are there?

Charging stations are usually chosen based on what your properties needs are.  They come in three basic configurations that are relevant to most business; All purpose, fleet, and fast charge. The actual charging unit can be mounted on a wall or built into freestanding units.  Some will have outer casings similar to the gas station pumps, but they will all be made of similar mechanical components.

All-purpose chargers are the most common seen in malls, shopping centers, and parking structure.  Great for community or small businesses.

Fleet chargers are usually set up for a slower charge for vehicles that set over night, taking advantage of off hour power use.

Fast Chargers are primarily for properties or businesses that cater to EV clients.   These are best when near commuter corridors or metropolitan areas where over night charging might not be readily available.

What are the challenges to installation?

Every property is unique and will have its own challenges that can vary based on zoning, power bus access, load bearing capacity of the current infrastructure, and even landscaping issues. In many cases infrastructure issues and systems that aren’t up to code, and need to be addressed. Current statistics show that between 2007 and 2016 there were 7,100 non-residential fires in the US with a total loss of $207,800,000 all from electrical malfunction.  We have a through inspection process that will keep you  from becoming another statistic.

Trouble can be avoided by having an experienced electrical engineer evaluate and create a proper plan of action.  Shortcuts and bad choices can create disasters and ongoing expenses. Our engineering staff is the best in Sacramento, with many high-end modern structures under our belts. There’s no way to know without a professional walking the site and making an evaluation.

What You Need to Know About DC Fast Charging

With the rapidly-growing battery sizes of electric vehicles, level 3 DC fast chargers are quickly becoming the standard for commercial charging applications. Here’s what you need to know about DC fast chargers so you can educate customers and installation partners:

  • 25kW stations will provide ~100 miles of range for every hour of charge. 50kW stations will provide about twice that.
  • Prices range from $7,500 for a 25kw single connector charger to $35,000 for 50kW dual connector networked stations
  • There are 3 plug types:
    • CHAdeMO – Asian standard
    • CCS – US & European standard
    • Tesla – They just had to be different… but adapters are available
  • Single and dual connector stations are available with CCS and/or CHAdeMO
  • Dual stations only charge 1 car at a time
  • Most full-electric EVs accept fast charging, but most plug-in hybrids do not

California already has the most electric vehicle (EV) drivers in the country and the number of drivers is still increasing rapidly.
Now, thanks to the new Sacramento Municipal Utility District (SMUD)Commercial Electric Charger Incentive Program, you can future-proof your property with EV charging and get back:

• Up to $3,000 per Level 2 charging station
• Up to $100K incentive per DC fast charging project
