Working with SPE demonstrates that EV charging at work is no longer a novelty; it is a necessity for the best employers, said, Terry O’Day, VP, NRG eVgo, California.

SPE provides eco-incentives to employees who want to purchase a qualifying hybrid, plug-in hybrid electric or electric vehicle through its Alternative Vehicles Incentive program from 2008 onwards.

So far around 300 employees have utilized this incentive for EV purchase with 90 electric and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles parking at the studio’s headquarters daily.

Besides, the infrastructure promotes studio’s environmental initiative, “Sony Pictures A Greener World” by authorizing employees to choose more eco-friendly ways of commuting.

The studio is always looking for ways to empower employees to be sustainable both at home and at work. Thanks in part to the Alternative Vehicles Eco-Incentive, demand for EV charging infrastructure was high and increasing. The partnership with NRG eVgo has been critical in helping employees choose these eco-friendly vehicles with the confidence of access to charging at work, said, Craig Schwartz, senior vice president, Global Facilities, SPE.

eVgo is building an all-inclusive network of fast-charging sites in the U.S. at convenient locations along major transportation corridors in addition to multi-family residences and workplaces.

In addition, the network support EV drivers charging facility at all major centers including single family accommodation, apartment residences, at work, on the road, or at the airport.
