As more and more people buy electric vehicles, they’re demanding that more and more locations they frequent offer EV charging. There are many benefits to adding EV charging stations to your commercial property, including employee retention, more high value tenants, and meeting sustainability goals. But what if you don’t want to actually own the equipment? What are your options?

Introducing Charging as a Service (CaaS)! With a CaaS program, you don’t need to purchase charging stations in order to offer EV charging amenities. Instead, you simply subscribe for what you need. And the best part is that you can pay from your operating budget rather than CapEx budget.

Who might want Charging as a Service?

Charging as a Service is designed for properties that don’t want to worry about ownership or installation. They want a turnkey solution that is simple and easy to implement without any effort. If you manage facilities at a workplace, apartment, or new development, this solution allows you to pay what for you need. It offers the most flexibility for commercial properties.

Pay for what you need

With this new industry, it can be difficult to predict future charging demand at your location. You may know that you currently have a few EV drivers at your property, and you know that you will see more in the future, but you need a flexible and scalable option that can adjust to your actual needs. With Charging as a Service, you reap the benefits of offering charging stations, without putting CapEx expenditures on your balance sheet.
