The case for EV charging.

EV chargers are proven to increase property value, attract customers to retail locations, and improve goodwill between any building and its tenants/visitors.

64% of Canadians say they are considering an electric vehicle for their next car purchase.

This is a significant opportunity for businesses, property managers or any location looking to attract customers from this rapidly growing demographic.
