Installing EV Charging Station Installation in Dallas

Current forecasts are that twenty years from now, Battery Electric Vehicles (BEVs) will make up 92% of light vehicle registrations. Twenty years seems like a long time but think back to 2000. Two decades have flown by. Between now and 2042, electric vehicle sales will continue their meteoric climb, forever changing the vehicle sales market.

Developed countries and populous U.S. states are forging laws requiring a speedy conversion to electric vehicles (in vehicle design and manufacturing terms). Auto manufacturers are taking note of the trends and requiring that dealerships install EV chargers or sell out. They believe strongly in the direction the industry is going.

Read on. We’ll explore the value of installing EV charging for auto dealerships and why this is a critical time to begin the process. We’ll also introduce you to new technology that simplifies installation in a significant way, saving costs, reducing installation time, and minimizing infrastructure disruption.

Why Dallas Car Dealerships Need EV Charging Solutions

Even if certain car brands do not currently include electric vehicles, offering EV charging branded for your dealership attracts potential buyers for the vehicles you carry. When you install your EV charging stations, listing your business on the U.S. Alternative Fuels Data Center puts your dealership on the EV charging map for all to access.

In addition, several car brands are beginning production of electric vehicles that will be on the market soon. For instance, GM plans to release 30 new EVs by 2025, 20 by 2023. Ranges are increasing, with fully charged vehicles traveling 450 miles on a single charge, shoring up a primary consumer insecurity with electric cars.

Consumers today are highly conscious of the level of Environmental, Social, and Governmental (ESG) commitments of businesses, making decisions based on these factors. Installing EV charging in auto dealerships sets the business apart as environmentally conscious and foreshadows future EVs.

Dealership EV Charging Stations: Benefits & Challenges

As with anything, EV charging station installation comes with benefits and challenges. Here we review a few of each.

Benefits and Incentives for Auto Dealerships

Federal Incentives

The federal government offers a tax incentive of up to 30% of the equipment and installation cost, up to $100,000 per EV charger. The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law targets 100 million EV charging stations in 35 states, spanning 53,000 miles of national highway. The federal government is investing $7.5 billion in this plan.

State Incentives

Some states also offer incentives. The Alternative Fuels Data Center provides a search engine for states’ current incentives. You might be eligible for tax incentives, grants, loans, or rebates from your state.

Environmental Impact of EVs

Statistics show that the positive environmental effects of switching to EVs are real. Greenhouse gas emissions over the life of an electric vehicle are less than those of internal combustion vehicles, even factoring in the environmental impact of the battery manufacturing process. The more environmentally-friendly-generated the electricity that powers the car, the lower the environmental impact of the vehicle over time.

An Extra Revenue Stream or Incentive?

EV charging station dealerships get to choose how to offer service. You can offer it free as a perk for customers who’ve purchased a vehicle from you, or you can see it as a way to have potential customers spend more time at your dealership.

If you decide to charge, you have options. Dealership EV chargers can handle payment in different ways. You can choose a subscription-based structure with a monthly or yearly cost or charge per session or kilowatt-hour of electricity consumed.

Challenges for Auto Dealerships

The benefits sound great. But what about the challenges dealerships face when installing EV charging? Here are a few.

Inadequate Electrical Infrastructure

Depending on the number of charging stations you plan to install, the local infrastructure may need to be upgraded. Preparing the infrastructure for higher-capacity demands may require coordination with the local power utility.

Upgrading the Power Supply

The installer can make some upgrades, but electrical supply enhancements such as higher-capacity supply wires and transformers need to come from the power company. Your installer should have experience interacting with the electric utility to collaborate on innovative solutions, including off-grid charging and on-site energy storage, solar solutions, and hybrid approaches that supplement grid power. 

Overcoming Cost and Logistical Challenges of Installation and Equipment Maintenance

In the end, the experience and capabilities of your installer will give you the greatest potential of installing an EV charging station at a reasonable cost, overcoming any challenges, and ensuring adequate and timely equipment maintenance.
