Charging Hub Economic and Costing Tool

CHECT is for property owners, private companies, or utilities considering the installation of electric vehicle (EV) charging hubs.

CHECT enables users to estimate charging costs ($/kWh) at potential charging hubs for various electric vehicle (EV) charging-hub scenarios.

Although the model provides defaults for ease of use, it allows the use of custom inputs. CHECT performs sensitivity analyses and is location (state) specific. It facilitates informed decision-making about owning and operating EV charging infrastructure.
