EV Charging Solutions for Places of Worship

Whether they house a large congregation or a small crowd, places of worship are a vital component of cities and towns across the country. In addition to bringing together religious followers and believers, temples, churches, mosques, and synagogues are often also known for serving their communities in a variety of different ways. From providing food pantries and soup kitchens to promoting charitable contributions and volunteering, service is a cornerstone of places of worship everywhere. Much like healthcare facilities and colleges, places of worship have an exciting new way to serve their communities with electric vehicle (EV) charging stations as EV adoption continues to rise at a rapid pace.

Provide Valuable Amenity for Visitors

While nearly every church, temple, synagogue, or mosque has a consistent audience to fill their seats each week, there’s nothing a house of worship loves more than welcoming new guests. In the not too distant future, an increasing number of these visitors will be traveling to and from places of worship in electric vehicles. Approximately 50 percent of all new car sales are expected to be electric vehicles by 2030, according to reports from EVAdoption.

Places of worship have an exciting opportunity to prepare for the impending transition and serve a new group of guests by installing EV charging stations. While most EV charging is done overnight, a worship service typically lasts an hour or longer and many churches also provide small groups or breakout sessions for their congregation, providing ample charging time for EV drivers in attendance. For locations interested in an innovative way to bring in new visitors, EV charging stations could be the answer as drivers everywhere continue to make the switch to electric vehicles.

Showcase & Inspire Commitment to Sustainability

The ongoing transition to electric vehicles represents more than just early adopters flocking to the latest trend in technology; it shows that people everywhere are investing in the next generation of infrastructure and a shared vision for a more sustainable future. For places of worship, deploying EV charging stations can serve as a valuable complement to community service efforts already in place, reinforcing a commitment to health, well-being, and green initiatives in their areas.

In addition to showcasing a strong belief in sustainability and clean energy, providing EV charging stations also allows churches, mosques, temples, and synagogues to chart a path for others to follow. Much like businesses competing within the same industry, places of worship will often emulate practices and initiatives from other locations within their communities. When one church offers this valuable amenity to its visitors, it’s sure to inspire others to do the same. Eventually, one decision could inspire a whole community, state, or even the entire country to embrace the EV revolution and adopt the same commitment to sustainable energy options.
