Since the DOE launched the Workplace Charging Challenge in January as part of the DOE's EV Everywhere Grand Challenge, 67 employers have jumped on board.
The idea here is to get employers to commit to installing charging stations at workplaces across the US.
The task is monumental, but it seems the Workplace Charging Challenge is gathering some steam.
The end goal is to increase the number of workplace charging stations tenfold in the next five years and the DOE seems to be on track to at least hit that target, if not exceed it.
We can only hope that in the future nearly all employers will install at least Level 1 units. This alone will make EVs more viable for a decent amount of potential consumers, especially when you consider that charging at work will likely be an 8-plus hour affair.
We applaud the DOE's effort here and urge all employer to consider joining the cause.
