Preparing This Kelowna Car Dealership For An EV Future
Limitless EV just recently finished installing a complete set of EV Charger installs at Kelowna BMW / MINI Kelowna! This particular install was focused on the service department to ensure the dealership is ready for the exponential growth in electric vehicle manufacturing and to ensure they keep up with these technologies!
While routine maintenance and repairs may look vastly different on an EV compared to regular gasoline vehicles, there is a quickly growing requirement for service departments to be able to keep electric vehicles charged while working on them!
These chargers also provide a convenient way for employees to keep their EVs charged!
Additionally – there are currently some very attractive rebates available for these installs!
Condominiums, apartments and workplaces that purchase and install eligible EV chargers can receive a rebate up to 50% of costs to a maximum of $2,000 per charger.
Customers who take advantage of the EV Charger Rebate may have access to top up rebates through participating municipalities and local governments.
Furthermore, benefits of a EV-ready service departments include:
– convenient charging during dealership inspections
– charging while performing maintenance for customers
– improved customer experience when picking up a fully charged vehicle
In addition to the EV Chargers we also installed new LED lighting throughout the service department which not only provides brighter light but also uses significantly less energy.
This install saved the client over $20,000 when EV and lighting rebates were combined. The new LED lighting also uses approximately 25% of energy compared to congenital lighting helping bring overall energy costs down!
