Transportation is always a big topic in California. Traffic woes, parking issues and environmental concerns drive conversations…and change. In September, Governor Gavin Newson signed an executive order requiring all new passenger cars and trucks sold in the state must be emission-free by 2035.
While that deadline feels far away, the state is already seeing a progressive transition. Eco-savvy and budget-conscious Californians are selecting electric vehicles (EV) over traditional gas-powered cars in record numbers.
Likewise, building codes are evolving to accommodate this new trend. Specific guidelines such as stall size and station location must be followed to implement EV charging.
Casco Design Studio can work with you to accelerate your workplace into the future. We offer a one-stop-shop for all your EV charging needs. Our expert team will design and build EV charging stations on your property and modify existing parking to incorporate new stations, allowing EV drivers to charge while they work.
We acquire all permits, interface directly with electrical engineers and provide charging stations including installation, parking re-striping and signage. Our dedicated team will bring your building space up to code and welcome your employees—and their EVs—back to the office with an extra jolt of energy.
Accessibility to EV charging is essential as more car companies manufacture electric cars and more consumers purchase them. Once the topflight champion, Tesla has new competitors. Toyota, Volkswagen, Honda, Fiat Chrysler, Nissan, Volvo and General Motors all have electric vehicles on their assembly lines. Additional options will attract new EV drivers; some may eventually step out of the sedan and into a truck or SUV built by Orange County’s luxury electric car maker Rivian.
California has set an ambitious goal to install 250,000 electric vehicle charging stations by 2025. Public charging stations may become more common, but not always available or convenient. You can give your team VIP treatment with onsite EV stations—it is a clean, green choice for people and the planet. It also sends a great brand message to your employees and the customers.
Casco is excited to help Southern California businesses embrace electric vehicles, improve our air quality and combat climate change.
