EVs on the Rise in the Lone Star State
The growing number of electric cars on the road today is undeniable. This upward trend is sure to continue at exponential rates as major car manufacturers like Ford, Chevy, and Toyota expand their lines of fully electric vehicles. While this growth in EV drivers was initially propelled by California and other states on the west and east coasts, we are now seeing demand rise elsewhere.
According to the U.S. Department of Energy, in 2021, Texas was ranked third for EV car registrations compared to other states. Registrations almost doubled compared to 2020 and more than tripled compared to 2018. With this rapid growth in EV ownership, Texas property owners, specifically commercial and multifamily property owners, need to prepare for the increasing EV charging demand from residents, tenants and visitors.
Lower Costs by Installing Today
Property owners often assume installing proactively to prepare for future demand will cost more, when installing EV chargers today is often the most cost-effective strategy. In recent news, Texas has allocated over $400 million in federal funding for EV charging station installations. This, along with other local, state, and national EV charger rebate and incentive programs, will allow building owners to offset large portions, if not all, of the costs associated with installing chargers at multifamily and commercial properties. Having EV chargers will soon be a necessity rather than a luxury, and because these programs won’t last forever, owners need to take advantage as soon as possible to reserve funding. This is where Chargie can help. Chargie ensures properties are ready for the EV evolution by helping property owners save money on the installation and managing the EV charging infrastructure.
