Benefits of having EV chargers at your business
How many EV chargers do you see every day? Maybe you spot some on your way to work, at the supermarket, or even just on the street. EV chargers are going to become a lot more ubiquitous all around the UK. 500 more new EV chargers are installed every month, but we actually need a lot more than this to keep up with demand. Sales of electric vehicles are growing every day, and overtook diesel in new car sales in August. And with government incentives and the upcoming ban on the manufacture of new fossil fuelled cars, this trend is firmly on the rise.
Why your business should invest in EV chargers
How then, can you as a business, ride this wave and take advantage of the growing need for EV charging stations? A great way is to add EV chargers to your place of business. Here are some important reasons why:
Attract more customers
This one is almost a no-brainer – more facilities at your business mean more visitors, and more revenue. EV drivers tend to earn more and will have more cash to spend with you. Keeping people on site while their electric cars charge up means you have more chances to sell your goods and services.
Puts your business on the map
EV drivers will need to be aware of EV charging locations wherever they are, and will take advantage of most chances to charge their vehicles. If your business has charging points, you can appear on Google maps and other EV-specific apps like Zap Map, putting your brand in front of a whole new audience.
Shows your business is proactive and modern
Change is coming, and you don’t want to be left behind. Soon, more and more businesses will take advantage of the increase in electric vehicles on the road, and start offering their own charging solutions. If you don’t take steps now, your business could easily fall behind the trend and you will be seen as outdated and old fashioned.
You may not be too interested in sustainability, reducing carbon emissions, and achieving ‘net zero’, but you know who is? A huge amount of potential customers and shareholders. Proving that you are committed to sustainable energy improves your brand image, and can give you the edge over other businesses who are slower to adapt to a changing world.
Will make you more money
This is the big one – you can offer EV charging to paying customers and open up a whole new revenue stream. Once the chargers are installed and you have set up your chosen tariffs via the VOLLT app, you can sit back and watch the cash roll in! Here at VOLLT, we can help you with every step of your journey to EV charging monetisation, from accessing government grants and other funding to installation and maintenance of your EV charging points.
