CHAMP Benefits
EV sales are increasing dramatically and you’ll be prepared to meet tenant, customer, and visitor changing needs. ~8% of new car sales in Oregon were EVs in 2022. Nationally in 2022, EV sales increased by 65% compared to 2021. As the popularity of electric vehicles continues to grow, providing EV charging infrastructure can be a significant advantage in attracting and retaining tenants or customers. EV owners are more likely to choose properties that offer convenient and accessible charging facilities.

ROI and Diversify Revenue Streams: Property owners can generate additional revenue by offering charging services to EV owners. Charging stations can be equipped with payment systems that allow users to pay for the electricity consumed. This can create a new income stream for the property owner while providing a valuable service to EV drivers.

Employee Benefits: Installing EV charging stations at a workplace can be a desirable perk for employees who own electric vehicles. It promotes sustainable commuting options and can enhance employee satisfaction, retention, and recruitment.

Leverage the 2024 Financial Incentives: Pacific Power, Portland General Electric, Clark PUD, Oregon Department of Transportation, and Oregon Department of Environmental Quality all offer a variety of rebates and incentives for commercial and multifamily properties to install and manage EV charging stations. See the latest updates here.

Environmental Sustainability: Installing EV charging stations aligns with sustainability goals and demonstrates a commitment to reducing carbon emissions. Electric vehicles produce fewer greenhouse gas emissions compared to traditional combustion engine vehicles. By encouraging EV use, property owners can contribute to a cleaner environment and support the transition to a low-carbon transportation system.

Charitable Benefits: A portion of proceeds help build affordable housing. Competitive Pricing: Direct importers with a strong supply chain and bulk purchasing. Excellent Service: Our experts manage product selection, audit, rebate paperwork, and installation. Trusted Contractor: Our vetted provider, Conserve Energy, is an Energy Trust Performance-Plus trade ally.
