Ford plans to to install 20 additional workplace charging stations at its North American facilities in the near future, and will add more as employee demand requires.
The automaker began installing charging stations in 2014, and currently has 145 units available for employee use at 43 locations. Some 349 Ford employees are using the chargers.
“Providing a charging network at Ford facilities not only benefits our employees, but builds upon our commitment to the electrification program and developing environmentally conscious vehicles,” said Cynthia Williams, Associate Director of Environmental and Regulatory Planning.
Earlier this year Ford teamed with DTE Energy to build one of Michigan’s largest solar arrays at its company headquarters. The solar canopy, which shades 360 parking spaces, generates 1.1 million kilowatt-hours of electricity per year.
