What is EV Blocks?

EV Blocks is a precast concrete electric vehicle (EV) charging point foundation that features a universal top plate and side openings for conduit installation. This foundation provides a fast, reliable, and simple alternative to the standard EV charger installation. EV Blocks offers greater convenience than any other product on the market and saves contractors and owners time, money, and stress all while meeting the highest quality standards. The Standard EV Block is 22” x 22” and 24” tall (55cm x 55cm x 60cm tall). The size and mass of the Standard EV Blocks makes it ideal for nearly all Level 2 charger installations.

With the passing of many government funding bills, in various counties, the demand for EV chargers has been increasing year over year and EV Blocks is poised to become the gold-standard for EV charger foundations.

What is involved in producing EV Blocks?

EV Blocks are a relatively small size and volume of concrete, and thus utilizes a gang form to help maximize production efficiency. By using simple door operations, limiting the number of removable parts, and having a four-product output, you are able to cut down on the labor associated with each finished product.

Since EV Blocks is a universal product that can be manufactured in advance and held in inventory, you don’t have to start with a large fleet of forms to meet project demands. With a single four-unit gang form a producer can make over 800 units per year and add to the form fleet as the market grows.

 

N

No special equipment is required, beyond what a typical precast facility already has

N

The form comes with all of the parts needed to start producing today

How long does it take to make a profit and how much can I expect to make?

While there are many factors under your control that affect how quickly you turn a profit and determine how much you will make, a typical EV Blocks partner recoups their investment the first year – even in a small, rural  market. With revenues approaching $3,000 per cubic yard (2,300 per cubic meter) of concrete, EV Blocks will be quite possibly the easiest and most profitable product that a producer can make.
