Going to school on EV chargers ::

I have a client in Tampa who wants 200 solar panels on the roof of his business and 2 EV car chargers set up in his parking lot.

He shares his parking lot with a busy bar, so he was interested in making revenue on nights and weekends off his car charging stations.

For this reason I’m learning all about car chargers; public and private, rules and regs in Florida, and how they work.

With more solar on commercial rooftops it makes logical sense to use those kilowatts to fuel up electric cars. If a company uses solar to power an electric delivery truck they will see an instant ROI in terms of hundreds of dollars per month saved in gasoline costs.

The companies that run chargers like ChargePoint and Electrify America charge large fees for their charger stations… $10,000 to $14,000 to get a charger installed!

I’m still trying to figure out the revenue stream from a thrid party charging company…

For the most part it makes more sense for a business to use a private charger (maybe with a combo lock) to just save on fuel costs.

Gotta go now….
