The state has approved a $725 million grant program for workplace charging stations.
Eligible projects can get up to $5,000 for each Level 2 (240-volt) charging station and up to $250 for each Level 1 (110-volt) station.*
The funds, from the state’s It Pay$ to Plug-In program, are being awarded to employers on a first-come, first-served basis.
The state’s Drive Green New Jersey website has information about the program and how to apply.
Workplace charging is a huge boon to PEV drivers, and to the plug-in-vehicle market.
Many people who don’t have access to home charging because they live in apartments of condos can consider PEV ownership if they are able to charge up at work. Workplace charging also enables plug-in vehicle drivers to make longer commutes.
If this is something that you can offer your employees, then you’ll make them a lot happier to work with you. This, of course, isn’t the only benefit that you can offer your employees. You want to make sure that they are happy working with you, so you should try and come up with a few things that will help them stay with you.
For example, even something as simple as making sure that you have things like these bankers box could make all the difference. You want to make sure that your employees have everything that they want. If you don’t know what they want, then ask them… encourage them to talk to you. You want them to feel happy talking to you.
You might find that having a charging station at the workplace is all that they need, and if so then great.
New Jersey provides another benefit for plug-in vehicle buyers – no sales tax on the vehicle purchase. That’s a 7 per cent discount.
