The program will provide “smart” charging equipment for approximately 150 cars. Charging stations will be given out on a first come, first serve basis to companies that secure a commitment from a minimum of five employees that they will use an electric car for their commute.
PSE&G will provide the charging systems for free. Participating workplaces will need to install the units and pay for the electricity. PSE&G will own the charging systems and collect usage data to better understand the impact of workplace charging on electric demand and the electric delivery system. The Hydra data collection system will be provided by Liberty Access Technologies.
The incentive is available only to companies located in PSE&G’s electric service territory. Companies interested in more information on the program can contact PSE&G at: [email protected].
PSEG also released data on the first year of operations of its own employee electric car incentive program launched one year ago, including:
– The 13 employees in the program are estimated to have driven 120,000 miles on electric commuting to and from work in the first twelve months of the program.
– The participants are estimated to have saved 5,300 gallons of gas and avoided spending nearly $19,000 on gas just on their commute.
– By commuting on electric, it is estimated that the program helped avoid 50 to 60 tons of CO2 being released into the air as well as reduced particulate, SOx and NOx emissions in communities through the state.
