White House Recognizes Valley for Participation in Department of Energy Workplace Charging Challenge



RIDGEWOOD, NJ, July 25, 2016—The Valley Hospital was recently recognized by the White House for its participation in the Department of Energy’s (DOE) Workplace Charging Challenge. The Workplace Charging Challenge encourages America’s employers to commit to providing electric vehicle charging access for their workforce.

Earlier this year, Valley installed five electric vehicle charging stations at its main campus, and is considering installing charging stations at satellite locations as well. Valley became a DOE Workplace Charging Challenge partner in June of this year. The hospital is now among the more than 350 national partners who have made a pledge to participate in the Challenge. The DOE is on track to meet its goal of having 500 United States Challenge partners by 2018. This is crucial, according to a White House press release, because “vehicles are parked at homes and workplaces most of the time, making the Workplace Charging Challenge a significant opportunity to expand our nation’s charging infrastructure. In fact, charging at work can potentially double an EV driver's all-electric daily commuting range.”    

The use of electric vehicles is a key component the Obama Administration’s goal “to combat climate change, increase access to clean energy technologies, and reduce our dependence on oil,” according to the release.
