21 Apr EV Charging Stations Attract Valuable Commercial and Multifamily Property Tenants
Electricity is on pace to lead as the fuel of choice for motor vehicles of the future. Governments worldwide are taking steps to phase out the use of combustion engines in favor of hybrid or fully electric vehicles. Influenced by both governmental regulations and public opinion, an increasing number of consumers are opting for electric vehicle ownership. That shift creates an increase in demand for electric vehicle charging stations. It will not be long before drivers see their roadside gas stations replaced with a bank of EV charging stations.
The meteoric rise in popularity of electric vehicles in recent years is evident to anyone driving in the areas around Seattle, Washington and Portland, Oregon. Commercial and multifamily property owners and managers in these areas are under constant pressure to differentiate themselves from competing properties. One of the latest and most popular trends is providing on-site charging stations.
- Attract top tier tenants. Commercial and Multifamily tenants are looking for convenient charging stations to use at work or at home.
- Future proof your property. An increasing number of tenants consider onsite charging stations a required amenity when making lease choices. Offering this service early makes a statement to tenants that you anticipate and respond to their needs.
- Tax incentives might be available. As the demand for electric charging stations and their supporting infrastructure increases, tax incentives might be available to encourage early adopters. A variety of rebates, write-offs, tax credits, and more can offset the cost of installing EV charging stations.
- Make a green statement. EV charging stations on your property announce to potential tenants that you are an active participant in their fight against air pollution and for the reduction of fossil fuels.
