Why EV?

“The future of transportation in the United States is Electric! In Q3 of 2023 alone, Electrified Vehicles (EVs) jumped to a record breaking 17.7% market share of new car sales and by 2030 Electric Vehicles will account for 62% of all new cars sold in the U.S. This can also be translated to the U.S. needing 28 million EV Charging ports to meet demand for zero -emission passenger vehicles.

Our Process to EV Implementation

    • Consultative Approach: At CSL Technology Solutions we pride ourselves on proposing custom EV solutions specific to your organization’s needs! Let us help you by answering our online EV Questionnaire here , emailing us at EV@csl-tech.com , or give us a call at 1 (937) 667-4421.


    • Site Survey: After understanding more about your EV Charging needs, we will schedule a site survey to visit your facilities first hand and obtain the following information to provide your team with a custom-designed solution:
      • Determine preferred locations of chargers
      • Locate currently available & potential power sources
      • Identify the most cost-effective locations
      • Current vs future demand analysis & future infrastructure planning


    • EV Proposal Design: Design is where we shine! With the site survey information & your feedback, our experienced Design Team will get to work creating a custom EV proposal for you. We identify and incorporate any applicable utility rebates, Federal/State/Local tax incentives, financing options, any required electrical permitting, turn-key installation & commissioning costs. We have partnered with several charging equipment manufacturers and charging networks to be able to provide you with the right EV solution for your properties.


    • EV Proposal Review: After completing your EV proposal, we will work to schedule time with you and your team to review the proposed EV solutions and answer any questions you may have! In this meeting we will expressly cover in detail the following:
      • Identified EV charging station location(s) per site
      • Selected charging equipment manufacturer & rationale
      • Project scope of work & specifications
      • Any alternative designs or discussed options
      • Project specific pricing


    • Signed Agreement: Once we have answered all of your questions & you are ready to move forward with the proposed project, simply sign our proposal agreement and we will begin the EV installation process! This starts with CSL applying for all required permits for the project by state & local jurisdictions. This initial permitting process usually takes 1-2 months before approval is received.


  • Turn-Key Installation & Project Management: After we have received approval from the appropriate building departments and have mobilized the required materials, we will coordinate with you & your team begin site installation! At CSL we firmly believe in “doing it right the first time” by prioritizing safety, dedicating ourselves to quality, and minimizing our impact to each site before, during and after our installs. Upon completion, we will work with your designated team members and instruct them on how they may set station pricing, track important charging data, restrict/grant charging station access, and review any other precedent charging station capabilities or preventative maintenance measures depending upon your agreement.
