New EV Ready Buildings

Last Updated: April 7th, 2023 | Multifamily 

Contractors and designers of new buildings have rare opportunities to futureproof their projects and add to property value with just one extra step. Installations of electric vehicle supply equipment (EVSE) can give personal electric cars their battery charge or go further and charge electric public transportation buses, small business fleets, or even neighborhood vehicles. It’s easier than ever to lay a foundation for tomorrow’s needs.

There is an ever-growing number of EVs in the world, and there are frequent announcements about the next big project for charging networks and technology developments. Even those who do not consider themselves “EV-heads” cannot miss the fact the electrification revolution is in progress, so how do we get more supporting infrastructure up and running? By incorporating them early in new buildings and construction project resources.

Let’s answer your questions about consumer demand, futureproofing, and what available incentives make it worth your while.

Who Wants EV Charging?

10.5 million new electric-powered vehicles were registered globally, a 55% increase from the previous year. EV adoption is receiving massive support, with major decision makers like the European Union parliament and New York City voting to sell only zero-emission vehicles by 2035. Although the numbers are growing, some consumers still need more encouragement for EVs due to the difficulty of finding charging stations. You can help by including EV charging infrastructure at your site, providing an inevitable service.

If you’re building condos or other multi-unit dwellings, EV-ready parking lots with chargers will attract more renters to your location and adds additional revenue streams. Meanwhile, a charger outside a commercial business park can offer EV charging as an employee perk as they complete their shift. Noodoe is ready to aid developers and equip them with the charging solution for their needs.

New Building Codes

In 2021, the International Code Council approved provisions regarding EV charging. These ensure electrical requirements in all new homes can support EV charging equipment. The “EV-capable” recommendations give a good line for new constructions to support a Level 2 AC charger.

Right-to-charge laws are passing across the United States, enabling tenants to install chargers at “EV-ready” properties. The compromise between owner and resident is possible thanks to well-installed circuits and capacity. While customers could install the charger themselves, why waste the opportunity? You could take the initiative and offer such installations as part of their service.

Commercial office buildings are perfect for longer dwell times, and workers want to charge for their EV commutes. As many existing office parks already have updated electrical grids, they can support futureproof charging stations.

Trusted Installer Program

Noodoe has worked with electricians and utility providers. Whether working on a new development or renovating, Noodoe’s Installer Program ensures the crucial job is done well and smoothly. We assist our partners and customers with training for hardware installation, software activation, and usage.

Integrating Software

Installing charging stations is a straightforward way to build an EV-ready property, but how can you support the installations? Noodoe EV OS is a hardware-agnostic software that can be customized to suit unique site needs, such as the load balancing feature. We have a whole blog post explaining how load balancing works; it is a solution that manages the needs of EV charging even with an older electrical grid. Smart solutions for tomorrow’s problems keep your developments and your customers happy.

Incentives and Rebates​

There can be a million good reasons to install EV charging stations, but the cost can outweigh them all. Staying within budget is a vital point in new construction projects. However, many countries are aware of the price that comes with futureproofing and are offering funding programs to ease the electrification transition.

Is Your Site Future-Ready?

There is a famous saying about how the best time to plant a tree was twenty years ago, but the second best time is today. For installing EV charging equipment, every day is a good day.
