Our culture’s emphasis on more environmentally sustainable transportation is fueling change, and the demand for electric car charging stations is surging. Electric cars have become more popular as they have become more affordable, driving the need for change even harder for commercial parking lot owners to provide for them.
It’s essential that business owners and property managers understand the critical role played by line striping to create designated spaces for electric vehicles (EVs).
Read on to gain valuable insight into the importance of your response as a business owner to the rising trend of electric vehicles.
Line Striping in Your Commercial Lot for Electric Vehicle (EV) Parking at Charging Stations
Adapt your property to cater to eco-friendly modes of transportation.
As a commercial property owner or rental property owner, it’s essential to pay attention to the changing needs of your tenants and customers. By providing line striping to clearly designate electric vehicle (EV) parking at charging stations, you improve your parking lot’s organization with efficient space utilization, and create convenience for EV owners. By adapting your parking lot to cater to the needs of eco-friendly EVs, you will stay ahead of the curve and invite more business.
Attract and retain environmentally conscious tenants and customers.
Charging stations are a sought-after feature for new customers and tenants. This is clearly the auto industry’s trending direction, and the quicker business owners embrace and provide for it, the better.
By line striping EV charging stations, you are anticipating a genuine need that an increasing number of prospective tenants and customers have. This practical foresight puts out the welcome mat to an elite group of new customers. While other businesses and rental property managers are overlooking the need, if you embrace it—you’ll stand out.
Providing designated and properly marked parking spots at EV charging stations draws (and maintains!) eco-conscious tenants and customers.
Make designated spaces obvious with markings and signs
Charging stations need easy-to-spot line markings designating them for the EV owners. When creating EV stalls, consider placing them in a prominent, visible location. Striping and stenciling EV stalls are typically painted green and can include symbols from batteries to plugs applied with stencils.
EV stalls should display clear signage that includes essential information for EV owners including directions to follow. Your company’s EV station should be well-lit, contributing to the security of your customers and creating a visible location for EVs to access during the night.
Embracing the Rising Trend of EVs Presents Challenges and Opportunities
As a property or business owner, it can be a challenge to stay ahead of the curve. But it’s worth it to go the extra mile and provide top amenities for customers and tenants. In fact, if you embrace the opportunity to supply a new need that has emerged in society, you will find the growth you experience makes it worth the investment. You will draw more customers and showcase your commitment to sustainability.
Public charging stations are added to driving apps, giving businesses greater exposure. Apps like Google Maps and Apple Maps highlight companies with public charging stations.
Commercial properties with charging stations increase their value significantly, delivering a substantial return on investment (ROI) for supplying the needs of those with EVs.
While the initial investment in adapting your parking lot for EVs may appear challenging at first, it will pay off in the long run with more customers and a hefty ROI when it comes time to sell your business.
