Why Its Time to Become EV Ready

The electric vehicle (EV) industry is predicted to boom over the coming years as more and more car manufacturers continue to design and produce various models of battery powered cars. Take, for instance, Volvo’s recent announcement that starting in 2019, every car it introduces will be either a hybrid or EV. This is an impressive commitment to phasing out conventional gasoline and diesel powered engines and moving towards a more sustainable society.
An expansion in the amount of electric vehicles on the road requires an expansion of the associated charging infrastructure. Government officials are recognizing the transition away from traditional fueling stations by offering funding and other monetary incentives for the installation of EV charging stations by employers. These charging stations will accommodate the rising number of EV owners, while stimulating the growth of the industry even further.  

 Yesterday, July 11th,  Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams attended a charging station unveiling at Whole Foods where he announced his plan to commit capital funding towards adding EV charging stations throughout Brooklyn.

Pfister Energy was proud to install the new charging station in the parking lot of the Gowanus Whole Foods. We stand beside Adams in his initiative to promote a cleaner, more sustainable society.

So, why should you become EV ready? Business owners can experience some unique benefits to having an EV charging station on their property. In particular, the addition of a charging station:



  • Sends a positive message to employees about the values of the corporation
  • Improves overall brand reputation 
  • Helps achieve the company's sustainability goals by reducing pollution
  • Provides advertisement, as people with electric vehicles will be attracted to the business
  • Makes your business stand out from competitors 


Coupled with the available government programs and tax incentives, these benefits are just a few reasons why it is incredibly advantageous for your business to install an EV charging station.

As electric vehicles become more prevalent on the roads, make sure your business is ready for the transition to alternative fuels.
