EV Charging Stations

According to most recent studies, electric vehicles (EV’s) are becoming more affordable, have greater driving distances and there are many more EV models being brought to the market every year.  In response to this mounting demand and to support a more sustainable environment, I am pleased to announce a new amenity exclusively available to Boston Properties’ (BXP’s) Carnegie Center tenants.  BXP has installed through our partner, ChargePoint, Electric Vehicle charging stations in three (3) convenient locations within Carnegie Center.  There are four (4) EV charging plugs located in the 101 Carnegie Center, 212 Carnegie Center and 502 Carnegie Center parking lots, respectively.  These central locations were chosen to be conveniently accessible for employees working in the 100, 200 or 500 Series (including 302CC) who would like to utilize the EV charging stations.

 

The usage of the EV charging stations is complimentary and exclusive to Boston Properties tenants at Carnegie Center.  When registering with ChargePoint you must use your Company e-mail address to be accepted into this program.  I have detailed below the easy steps to get started.
