Plugging Your Business Into Vehicle Charging
The City chargers aren't the only ones in town - a number of Longmont businesses have set up charging stations as well, making the community even more welcoming to electric vehicles. If you'd like your company to do the same, here are a few steps to get started.
- Who do I call? Whether you want to install just one charging station or an entire bank of them, start by calling the Longmont Planning and Development Services Department at 303-651-8330.
- How long will it take?
- If the existing electric service is sufficient and properly situated for the planned station, it could take as little as one to two weeks to get the project reviewed and approved, and the necessary electric infrastructure installed by LPC.
- If the existing service is not sufficient, it typically takes one to two months for a single charging station. A bank of charging stations for commercial resale may take up to six to eight months, depending on the specific requirements.
