Their subconscious mind has been programmed, by millions of dollars worth of propaganda, to resist any positive acknowledgement or acceptance of electric cars. This is the true problem with EV's. Not the range.

On the bright side, the company is now expanding and building 3-story garage on site and they plan on installing some charging stations at the ground level.

Where I work we have 2 chargepoint instalations. I really appriciate them even tho I rarely need them. Talking with the facility managment people I discovered that Chragepoint charges a fortune to sell them the product then the facility has to take care of all the maintaince. Within one year both charging systems (two cords each) needed expensive repair. Chargepoint uses cheap cords and relays. That is what is meant by "very expesive".
The place that I work at did not know a simple outlet was all that was needed. For the price they paid for the chargepoint chargers and repairs they could have put in dozens of 120 volt outlets or at least five 240 volt outlets.
The EV comunity needs to get the word out that we do NOT need J1772 special chargers. The J1772 chargering sytem was designed to hamper EV adoption. RVs have been plugging in campers for over a hundred years with no issues. As long as a company is not installing a DC fast charging option then they can skip the special charger bull and just install a plug. I do beleive all EVs come with cords to plug them in right?
The link can provide almostmaintenance free plugs for at least three EVs. They are also not that expensive to install. It is also the max a company needs to do. They can go even go cheaper by just installing a 120 volt GFI plug.
