Get A Grip On Lighting: The Future Of EVs

We are getting into an expansion of electric vehicle charging station sales for electrical distributors, but are we getting too far ahead of the EV market?

Like lighting, as improvements are made to charging electric vehicles, the current equipment could become obsolete.

Michael Colligan and Greg Ehrich examine how some cities could benefit from EV expansion, while others are not ready.

Greg Ehrich, LC is the former President of the National Association of Innovative Lighting Distributors (NAILD) and owner of Premier Lighting, a progressive lighting distributorship.

Michael Colligan is an entrepreneur and inventor. He’s a subject matter expert in commercial and industrial lighting supply, lighting retrofits, and finding recycling streams for hard-to-recycle waste.

    They are both correct in recognizing the EV revolution is now upon us. Greg’s concerns are exactly what the average consumer is thinking. Range anxiety and lack of charging stations are the biggest concerns. More so than the price of an EV or the time it might take to charge it. But like any new technology everything will look different 5 years from now. EV battery technology will improve and provide greater distance and faster charging. Lucid Motors has already broken the 500 mile ceiling and Tesla will follow next year. ABB has just launched a DC charger that claims to charge in as little as 15 minutes or add 20 miles for every minute of charging. EV chargers are starting to pop up everywhere a car can park. Electrical Distributors can make some serious money with EV charging and the time is now.
