Commercial EV Charging Station Installation in Rochester NY 

Almost every commercial business in and around Rochester NY has a parking lot, or parking spaces associated with their business. Instead of maintaining these spaces as empty lots that require repair and repainting every winter, create a space that adds value to your business and the surrounding space.

It has never been easier to find a contractor for your commercial EV charging station installation in Rochester NY. At Douglas Electric, we provide full installation and design services to ensure your parking space suits your business’ needs while also providing your customers with the right charging options at a sustainable price.

By adding charging stations to your parking lot, customers will feel more at-ease when visiting your business, understanding that your business is making way for the future while ensuring they have enough charge to comfortably make the drive to your business.

Why You Should Install a Commercial EV Charger  

Commercial EV charging stations can reduce your business’ carbon footprint, allowing you to maintain consistency with your sustainable messaging and eco-friendly values.

As the world continues to move into infrastructural changes that require us to reduce our fuel consumption and carbon emissions, it’s critical that your business offers these options if it wants to stay ahead of changing times and retain customer traffic.

Furthermore, installing a commercial EV charger can become another revenue source for your business, turning empty concrete parking spaces into a profitable space that – with the addition of a covered solar awning – can become a fully self-sustainable bridge to your customers’ needs.

Installing a commercial EV charger is a smart move for any forward-thinking business looking to stay ahead of the societal shift to a greener and more renewable source of energy. In some areas, businesses can even take advantage of tax incentives for electric vehicle charging stations.

We Supply EV Charging Stations

Douglas Electric is proud to assist business owners with their electrical needs for over 34 years. While EV charging stations are still relatively new on the market, we understand that the technology is developing fast and the infrastructure is in increasing demand.

Many different types of businesses can benefit from having an EV charging station installed, such as hotels, garages shopping malls, parks, and even municipalities’ downtown parking spaces.

Offices, and dealerships are also in a prime position to install EV charging stations in their lots, offering commuters and customers an opportunity to top-off their car’s charge. Wherever there is a parking lot, we can assess the property for the opportunities of installing an EV charging station to benefit not just EV owners, but also your business.

Add a Solar-Powered Carport to Your Charging Station 

Solar-powered parking spaces are an excellent way to encourage your patrons to park at your place of business and stay for longer periods of time. This is especially beneficial to multi-business plazas and municipalities where parking can accommodate patrons of multiple businesses at once.

For even greater sustainability and renewable energy, adding a solar-powered carport or awning to the station can allow it to draw power from the sun to either supplement or fully power the charging stations. Not only does this provide your business with the incentives of EV charging stations but doubles down with additional tax incentives for solar powered technology.

Some charging stations require a solar-powered carport to supply the station, providing both slow and fast charging options to EV owners. In these cases, we can assess the site and provide a full quote based on the conditions of the site.


EV Charger Installation FAQ

How Much Is It To Put In a Charging Port for an Electric Car?

There are three levels of charging ports that your business can install. Even if you’re not installing a full station, you can still offer a charging port – a popular choice for multi-tenant buildings or individual installations by landlords and municipalities on a budget. Each level of charging port increases the amount of charge it can output. In other words, the higher level the charging port, the faster it can charge a vehicle to full.

At the base of the price range, installing a Level 1 charger will cost anywhere from $400 to $600 depending on the requirements for the space, site conditions, and whether it needs to be supplemented with a solar panel. Level 2 chargers range from $500 to $1,200, and level 3 charger costs start at $10,000.

How Much Does Commercial EV Charger Installation Cost?

The cost of every charging station changes depending on the site’s conditions and the type of charging station desired. A site that requires nothing more than a charging port installation will cost less than a site that requires a charging station plus additional solar panels or electrical connections.

At Douglas Electric, our team is dedicated to creating a plan that both suits your needs and fits your budget. Additional financing or leasing options may be available to certain businesses. Give us a call today and we’ll help you discover the options available to you.
