Powered & Protected: Shade & Your EV Charging Station
Electric Vehicles (EV) are continuing to gain popularity as drivers become more aware of their environmental benefits and cost-efficiency. According to an estimate calculated by the Edison Foundation’s Institute for Electric Innovation, there will be 18.7 million electric vehicles on the road by 2030.
As a ChargePoint Premier Partner, Apollo Sunguard has sold and distributed EV charging stations across the country, including to federal agencies such as the State Department, the Department of Defense and the United States Fish and Wildlife Services. ChargePoint is currently the leading manufacturer of electric vehicle charging stations in the United States, with more than 52,000 stations deployed nationwide.
The Institute for Electric Innovation reports that the availability of EV charging structures is fundamental to the overall growth of electric vehicles. By adding a shade structure to your EV charging station, you can help foster a more sustainable environment by conserving energy in cooler temperatures. With one of the strongest warranties in the shade industry, consider adding an Apollo Sunguard shade structure to your EV charging station today.
As a Florida-based company, Apollo Sunguard understands how hot the sun can get. While the heat may be burdensome, it also directly impairs battery function. Electric vehicles charging in direct sunlight can require up to 2kW more power to become fully charged. Apollo Sunguard’s cantilever shade structures pair perfectly with charging stations. Under shade, electric vehicles can charge more efficiently.
Cool Down Quicker
Shade structures not only improve the charging efficiency of electric vehicles, but they also protect the interior and exterior from sun damage. Apollo Sunguard’s Shade Cloth mimics the natural shade of trees by allowing air to flow through, helping to cool down even energy-absorbing materials such as asphalt and concrete. Under a shade structure the ambient temperature can feel 20 degrees cooler. That’s a difference you can feel!
Built to Last
All of Apollo Sunguard’s structures are backed with the shade industry’s leading warranty – fifteen years on fabric and twenty years on steel. With over 17 fabric colors available, Apollo Sunguard’s Shade Cloths add curb appeal to your property or home.
