Electric Vehicles Growing in Popularity Means More Charging Stations in Parking Lots and Places of Business

Reducing carbon emissions is no longer just a vision for the future; it is a common goal today and is top of mind for many. Within this collective mission, one area that is gaining in popularity is electric vehicles (EV). If we are to meet the country’s goal of reducing emissions by 50% by 2030, we need an uptick in electric vehicle production and strategically placed charging stations. While the popularity is growing, one aspect that threatens to stagnate things is the potential recharging bottleneck. As a business owner, you have an opportunity to do your part in saving the environment and give your employees and customers a place to charge their vehicles.

Emergency Lighting Installation

In a world of uncertainties and vulnerabilities, there is no telling when your commercial premises may face an emergency evacuation. From building fires and power outages to gas leaks and natural disasters, your emergency preparedness and response may be put to the test by a number of different situations. Building codes, such as those issued by the National Fire Protection Association and the National Electrical Code (NEC) make it mandatory to have emergency lighting solutions. There is no getting around this essential investment for your premises. Not only does this include backup power platforms, but also the exit signs, ballasts, and other emergency systems for Uninterrupted Power Supply (UPS). 

However, emergency lighting solutions can be highly advantageous for your business and they usually pay for themselves. The qualified professionals at J&S Electrical Contractors offer some insights in this context. 

Key Benefits of Commercial Emergency Lighting Solutions 

While emergency lighting guides the way through corridors and walkways, on certain occasions it could literally be the difference between life and death. Besides being an important part of managing hazardous situations, emergency lighting installation can help your business in numerous other ways:

  • No Work Disruptions or Drop in Productivity: Emergency lighting solutions include uninterrupted power supply systems, as well as backup generators and inverters that kick in whenever there are any problems with the primary power supply to your premises. This means you can avoid unplanned downtimes and productivity issues related to power or lighting. 
  • Investment Recovery is a Breeze: Whether it is through reduced non-productive hours or drop in insurance premiums, you will recoup your investments in emergency lighting quite quickly and in various ways. Most modern systems use LED technology, have longer lifespans, and offer higher durability and environmental friendliness than traditional systems.
  • No Unnecessary Panic or Chaos during Evacuation: Emergency lighting systems power the illuminated exit signs in commercial premises. Should an incident occur that requires an urgent evacuation, emergency lighting will help your employees, customers, visitors, and building occupants vacate in a safe and orderly manner.
