ACS Charging Station Services
The Alco Charging Solutions Advantage
No upfront costs. ACS pays 100% of the upfront capital investment for station hosts who select our third-party ownership option.
The right equipment for each customer's needs. We are product agnostic. Since we’re not tied to any specific charger manufacturer or network, we can provide the ideal charging solution for each and every customer.
Industry expertise. Our certified and licensed electricians and engineers are experts in EV charging planning and road mapping, engineering, implementation, incentive/grant procurement, construction and aftercare.
A trusted partner. Our team's technical knowledge, customer-centric focus, and commitment to flawless craftsmanship ensures a stress-free installation experience for our customers—and repeat business for ACS.
The ACS Installation Process
1. Listen and Learn
The intent of this first consultation is to gain a thorough understanding of each customer's specific wants, needs, and goals relative to EV charging.
2. Preliminary Feasibility Assessment (PFA)
The ACS feasibility assessment begins with a site visit to explore and evaluate existing power options.
It includes an analysis of the technical, economic, legal, operational and time feasibility factors associated with our customer's EV charging station project.
The PFA will identify/establish possible solutions that minimize risk, maximize value and address any concerns/challenges our customers might have.
3. Investment Grade Site Analysis
Providing investment grade audit & analysis data early in development is vital, and helps to streamline our collaboration with both our partners and customers. ACS will identify all of pertinent information needed to advise our customer of any/all EV charging options that best meet their needs.
4. System Design
Determining the optimum design for each customer location is critical. Our engineers use the data and insights uncovered during the audit to evaluate:
Electrical supply requirement
Local accessibility laws
Space challenges and opportunities
And, since it is a rapidly evolving industry, our engineers will research any new technology options that might benefit the customer.
5. Turn-key, Stress-free Construction
Large-scale Electric Vehicle Charging projects often require a nimble level of coordination, with stellar project management to ensure everything is completed on time & under budget—and complies with all ADA and federal requirements. Our installation team is flexible, proactive and takes the time needed to plan all construction activities well in advance. Our "second-to-none" approach to construction provides a streamlined, stress-free experience for each of our customers.
6. Maintenance & Operations
Careful after-care protects your investment. Post-project care & maintenance is an element of EV charging that is often overlooked. ACS offers our customers a variety of ways to ensure all equipment operates efficiently and effectively.
Allan Cook, President & CEO
Allan started a summer job with an electrical contracting company that his brother-in-law worked at when he was just 15 years old. Despite only earning $1.90/hour, he knew that being an electrician was the key to his future. He also knew that one day his ambition to succeed would result in having his own company—thus was born what would become Alco Electric. In February of 1995, Allan was licensed and working full-time as an electrical contractor. He proceeded to launch Alco Construction & Electrical Services in 2004, once obtaining his General B Contractor License to expand the company’s capabilities.
Along the way, Allan learned one key business truth: “Do what you say you’ll do while always keeping your integrity intact, and you’ll never lose a client."
