WANADA joins DOE in Workplace Charging Challenge

WANADA joins DOE in Workplace Charging Challenge

WANADA recently joined the Department of Energy (DOE)ês Workplace Charging Challenge in its goal to achieve a tenfold increase in the number of employers offering electric vehicle charging stations by 2018. WANADA joins the World Wildlife Fund and PJM Interconnection, a wholesale electricity provider, as only the third organization in DC to enter the charging challenge program.

The partnership means that WANADA has pledged to try to provide EV charging access for its workforce headquartered at 5301 Wisconsin Avenue, NW in DC. WANADA has committed to talk with building administrators to assess the feasibility of installing a charging station onsite and report the results to the DOE. That report will provide useful information about the challenges property owners face in developing a more sustainable infrastructure. Creating workplace charging opportunities could have tremendous benefits for employees and send the message that area dealers support the creation of such infrastructure.

For more information about the Workplace Charging Challenge, including how your dealership can participate, contact Joe Koch at (202) 237-7200 or jk@wanada.org.
