Supporting you with some key considerations about electric charging and home charging reimbursement.

Updated over a week ago

There are some important policy guidelines to keep in mind to ensure a smooth and successful transition to a zero-emission car fleet. In this article, we will present the key considerations when developing an electric charging policy for an electrified fleet. Implementing such a policy not only helps companies reduce their environmental impact but also provides a range of benefits for their employees. It is a positive step towards a more sustainable and responsible future.

Why do companies implement a policy for home charging reimbursement?

Companies implement a policy for home charging reimbursement to support their employees who drive electric cars and to encourage the adoption of sustainable transportation options. Electric cars require regular charging, and many employees may not have access to charging infrastructure at their workplace. As a result, they have to rely on home charging as the primary means of recharging their vehicles. However, this can lead to additional electricity costs for employees, especially if they do not have access to a public charging station or if they have to charge their cars frequently at home.

By implementing a policy for home charging reimbursement, companies can help offset some of these costs for their employees. This policy typically involves reimbursing employees for the electricity costs associated with charging their electric cars at home.

What are the key considerations?

The company should establish a policy for charging, including how charging information is collected from the car fleet and how charging costs will be reimbursed.Some key considerations when developing a electric charging policy for an electrified fleet are:

  • COMFORT - on average, 60% of the charging will take place at your employees' homes. Use an effortless system that can reimburse this amount of energy, based on the kWh information that comes from the car data. Smart charging at home might be requested by the employee, but that does not mean you need to use the back-end system from the charging station provider to reimburse the home charging. When offering a public charge pass, don’t consider price only, the coverage is much more important for your employees. Keep in mind that the more electric charging options you can offer to your employees, the smoother they’ll join the transition;

  • COST - the company should evaluate the cost of electricity, the cost of installing and maintaining charging infrastructure, and the cost of any software required to collect and reimburse the charged energy.

  • COMMUNICATION - it is essential to communicate the policy clearly to all employees and provide training on the new topics related to electric charging and reimbursement. The company should establish a system for monitoring and reporting on the electricity consumption of the entire car fleet. This will help the company identify any issues or inefficiencies with the charging policy and make necessary adjustments.

Overall, implementing an electric charging policy for a company car fleet requires careful consideration of a variety of factors. By taking these key considerations into account, companies can ensure that their electric car fleet is efficiently and effectively charged, helping to reduce their carbon footprint and promote sustainable transportation options.
