Taking steps towards sustainability
After 37 years in business, as their company expand and work towards a more sustainable future. They invested in a number of GARO EV Charge points to cater for visitors to site, as one part of their efforts to engage with and promote positive initiatives within the workplace and community. A shift in rental car companies is reflective of the composition of their customer base, as more and more visitors are leaning towards green, eco-friendly travel options.
As the world continues to strive for more sustainable solutions in the workplace, Dawn Farms announced its investment in GARO EV Charge points. This investment is the latest in a long string of steps taken towards a more sustainable future for the company and its visitors. For 37 years, Dawn Farms has strived to provide the best for its visitors, and now with the addition of the EV Charge points, they are taking a further step to ensure that visitors from all sources, including rental car companies, are catered for in the most efficient way.
Dawn Farms enlisted the help of a trustworthy local electrical contractor to install a GARO Atle 24kW DC charger for visitors and sales representatives, as well as an additional six LS4 charging stations that were available for all staff. The installation process was efficient and of a high standard, from start to finish. They were delighted the day the EV Chargers went live. They were able to take advantage of the SEAI workplace incentive that allows businesses to deduct the full cost of their purchased equipment from their profits. And they were able to apply this incentive to the additional six LS4 charging stations that were put in for staff.
Despite the fact that Dawn Farms had to change their order on several occasions in the early stages, deciding on how many and which charging stations to be selected, our Sales team rose to the challenge and delivered as promised. Once the chargers were delivered, the only challenges during the installation were locating sufficient electrical supplies where they were needed, how to meter and monitor, while spreading out the load to protect the main supply.
Fortunately, all these areas were covered within the GARO EV Charging station once all the electrical supplies were obtained and routed. Installing a DLM (Dynamic Load Management) protected the main load by taking control of the load being used for charging and adjusting it to match current power use elsewhere without overloading the fuse. Additionally, Monta was installed on each charger so that metering and monitoring could take place, allowing the company to keep track of their entire EV charging in one platform. This gave the ability to set availability, pricing if needed and manage any users.
With both the AC and DC chargers installed and now running for 6-7 months, Dawn Farms has had no issues and electric car charging has run smoothly for both visitors and staff. Choosing GARO for its sleek, modern design that will enhance the building. As a select amount of the chargers are located directly at the main entrance. Dawn Farms are extremely happy with their GARO EV Chargers. With their overall experience with the team and product being described as “Fast and efficient”.
