GM to add 3500 Charging Stations For a Greener Tomorrow

GM to give charging stations to employees

Last Updated on

General Motors (GM) recently announced this week that the company would install a total of 3500 electric charging stations across its office buildings in the US and Canada. According to GM, this move of installing electric stations will triple the charging stations across the countries. Unfortunately, there is only a small population of employees at GM offices that currently drives electric vehicles. However, this move will motivate employees working at their offices to own electric cars.

At the same time, the automaker believes that the installation of electric charging stations will substantially contribute to the increase in the adoption of EVs. This cause will become more vital to GM with the launch of the GMC Hummer EV and Cadillac Crossover electric version. According to the manufacturer, EV charging stations should be “ubiquitous,” and the company is working with charging providers on providing customers options for prospective charging stations.

Moreover, GM will ensure the convenience of EV charging for its employees with the internal growth in the Chevrolet Bolt EV popularity and both the publicized GMC Hummer EV and Cadillac Crossover electric trim. The company also claims that, presently, 900,000 of 1 million EV owners are unable to charge their vehicles at work. But, this can drastically change, and six times more consumers will pursue to drive EVs to work if they can find a charging station everywhere.

GM also hopes that the installation of the office EV charging stations will motivate other companies to start the same and will understand the value of investing in such charging stations. By and large, the stations will prove to be an affordable benefit for employees, attract talent, increase employee retention, and show that the company is willing to commit to sustainability.

Furthermore, GM will install the charging stations at Level 2 charging sites based on the needs of the employees. Buildings or plants that have frequent EV drivers or the EV chargers are frequently full will have more priority over others. As of now, GM has also claimed that the manufacturer has tied hands with other third-party companies to finish the installation of these charging stations, but didn’t name any specific company or brand names.

Under ideal conditions, a Level 2 charger adds 25 miles per hour to a Chevrolet Bolt EV battery. This recent announcement for the installation of EV charging stations comes with the company’s recent commitment to power renewable energy to all its global operations by the year 2040. The plan also incorporates transforming facilities in the US to renewable forms by the year 2030. As per their commitment, many charges at GM’s US plants will run on clean energy, in due course of time. By and large, this will significantly impact in reducing the environmental impact of the vehicle. But, we are still awaiting the dates for the installation of 3500 EV charging stations in the US and Canada. We will keep you posted about the latest news on GM, renewal energy, and third-party companies, as soon as, we receive any information.
