Do you own an electric vehicle, or have you thought of purchasing one?
Electric vehicles, or EVs, offer a number of benefits over their gas-guzzling cousins: they’re cheaper to operate, easier on the environment and come flush with exciting new technologies. But if you live in a multifamily building, finding a place to charge your EV can be a challenge.
Enter Electrify America. As part of the Volkswagen settlement, Electrify America is installing $40 million worth of electric vehicle charging stations across the country. They’re specifically looking for suggestions of multifamily buildings and workplaces that could benefit from an EV charger.
That’s right, your multifamily building or workplace could have an electric vehicle charging station installed for free. Here’s how it works:
- Visit electrifyamerica.com/submissions before March 1.
- Select “Specific Site Location” from the first dropdown menu, where it says “Submission Type.”
- Fill in the rest of the form. This should only take a few minutes.
- Electrify America will weigh these suggestions over the coming months. If your site is selected, they’ll reach back out to you.
Make sure you submit your building or workplace before the March 1 deadline. If you would like assistance filling out the form or have questions, don’t hesitate to contact us at [email protected].
