If you build it, they will come.

Why property owners and facilities managers need to deploy EV charging as a service – now.
A recent article in The New York Times extolled the rapid increase in EV adoption in New York City and the surrounding suburbs, going from 3 electric vehicles per 1,000 people in the metro area in 2020 to about 7 per 1,000 last year, according to numbers from research firm Atlas Public Policy.
Not surprisingly, that rise corresponds to a similar trajectory in the availability of public chargers. Industry estimates put at least 1,500 public charging stations in the NYC metro area today, up from 551 in 2019.
The quid pro quo for EV adoption is arguably linked to how easy we make it for drivers to keep their vehicles charged, whether they’re at home, at work, or on the road.
But it’s not just about a few charging stations or being able to plug in at home. It’s about a charging network—a viable system that will build confidence in charging.
Clearly, governments at every level are supporting this, not to mention utilities and energy providers.
But private property developers and facilities management companies are in the unique position of being able to get in on the ground floor, as it were. By introducing EV charging as a service, they’ll meet the market demand for a forward-thinking solution for both commercial and residential tenants. And much more.
With a comprehensive managed charging platform, they will be able to:
Brand and monetize charging as a value-added service to benefit tenants
Create partnerships with public and third-party charging infrastructure providers to extend customer loyalty
Increase value and stickiness for environmentally minded tenants to be an intrinsic part of the EV solution
EVs are here to stay. Property owners and facilities managers can be in the driver’s seat when they build private charging networks to support them.
