The EMPOWER Workplace Charging Project is catalyzing workplace charging (WPC) adoption by connecting workplaces nationwide with local workplace charging coaches, reducing barriers through education, and providing access to a centralized library of helpful workplace-focused resources. VCC is a proud partner of this project.

The EMPOWER WPC Project is supporting and recognizing employers who pledge to expand access to EVs for their employees, regardless of their organization’s size or progress. EMPOWER provides a guided path to effective workplace EV installations and employee-facing programs.

Workplace charging provides great convenience for EV owners and in some cases, is essential for commuters that do not have access to charging at home. As an employer, you have a unique opportunity to capitalize on federal, state, and local utility support for workplace charging while demonstrating your workplace’s corporate leadership and sustainability commitment while providing enhanced employee benefits.

Tools and Resources

Power and Energy Calculator Tool

Power and Energy Calculator tool for Workplace Charging is designed to help Electric Vehicle (EV) owners and employers or property management calculate, decide and plan for workplace charging (WPC). The numbers in these calculations should not be considered definitive, but rather as planning estimates.
