EV Charging Stations Can Benefit Local Economies:

How can we close the growing gap between electric vehicles and a lack of charging stations?


As the electric vehicle market continues to expand in the US, local governments continue to play a risky game of “wait-and-see,” waiting for the increase in EV demand to materialize to substantial numbers before building charging stations. However, the investment and construction of charging stations will take time as city planners must account for what kind of chargers to build, where to place them, and
the costs involved in the variations between different charging stations. Between the more expensive but much faster charging Level 3 chargers, the cheaper but slower Level 2 chargers, and the cheaper slower Level 1 chargers, government planners will have to make careful choices on the distribution of different types of chargers. Yet, as electric vehicle sales rise faster than expected, the gap between the large number of EVs and smaller number of available electric chargers continues to widen.

These types of problems will continue as EVs become more mainstream and charging station construction is slowed as government planners continue to debate and understand construction of these chargers. Make My Day understands this dilemma, and its algorithm will work with individuals and businesses to optimize their charging through calculating the best location to charge, which type of charge/charging station is most efficient and accessible for the driver, and other various underlying calculations that factor into how to spend the least amount of time waiting for a charge. As the gap widens, Make My Day’s software closes that disparity between electric vehicles and the necessary electric infrastructure that drivers will need to utilize.
