As more electric drive vehicles appear on Americas’ roadways, even more electric vehicle charging stations are being installed throughout our communities in parking lots, parking garages, and along busy city streets. With the emergence of this new technology, Industry experts are beginning to gain a better understanding of their potential volatility and the risks associated with their presence in public places.
Because so many governments own or are responsible for the electric vehicle-charging infrastructure in their cities, a unique exposure to liability risk has been created. Each one of these cities need to be prepared in the event of an accident or incident involving a charging station. Many cities have overlooked the safety aspect by failing to prepare emergency responders and city and county workers on proper handling technics and power termination.
Greenstar has identified numerous issues and safety concerns in cities with these devices installed on their city streets and created the only full packaged safety program. In order for the general public to support the EV program, they must believe that EV charging station safety is a top priority.
We have found some cities are confused on electric vehicle charging stations safety with the electric vehicle safety program. Cities are also unsure which department would be responsible for these devices and also will refer to their local utility company as the responsible party. We have found this is due to lack of communication and planning and can be resolved with our safety program.
