Power up! Zappos Supports Electric Vehicles

On June 14, four electric vehicle charging stations officially came online for usage by our employees and guests in the south garage of Zappos’ new LEED® Gold (pending) downtown campus!

As electric vehicles (EVs) have steadily gained popularity over the years, installing these stations was a perfect opportunity to encourage our employees to commute to work in a more eco-friendly manner. Although the big move downtown to the campus is still more than a month away, the chargers have already been put to good use; one of our friends in IT department has been plugging in his Nissan Leaf, while a member of the construction project management team has used the chargers for his Chevy Volt. There have even been sightings of Project 100’s Tesla Model S powering up!

The four charging stations are also part of Zappos’ commitment to the Department of Energy’s Workplace Charging Challenge, a collaborative initiative to increase the number of U.S. employers offering workplace charging by tenfold by 2018. This means that Zappos will soon be included in their Electric Vehicle Charging Station Location registry, which is widely considered to be the most comprehensive database of charging stations available. But the coolest part is that Zappos is currently one of only 48 companies in the country to join this forward-looking program!

As part of this partnership with the Department of Energy, we also surveyed interested Zapponians on their attitude towards electric vehicles. Results showed that 60% of respondents are considering purchasing an EV, which indicates good things for the future. Another question on the survey asked what they thought about the installation of the four chargers – only 2% considered them a waste of a parking space, while an amazing 55% of saw it as the right thing to do and thought more should be installed.

This all ties in to Zappos’ commitment to a healthier, more livable downtown Las Vegas. Currently, our fleet of vehicles has a compressed natural gas (CNG) powered minivan and moving forward, we’re looking to replace our existing fleet with electric vehicles, as well as hybrids and additional CNG vehicles.

Hi Danielle,

I wanted to clarify what you mean by "and guests", I was there on Saturday afternoon, and was (politely) told by security in the parking garage that I could not park/charge there. I was planning to walk next door to the Gold Spike if that makes a difference (wasn't asked by security what my intentions were, so not sure if that matters.) Thank you!
