Commercial electric vehicle charging stations attract tenants and visitors, enhance dwell time, and increase revenues, among other benefits. Here are some reasons why you should consider installing in 2022.

The advantages of commercial EV charging stations for retailers.

While it’s true that most EV owners charge at home, research reveals that the vast majority also use public charging stations when they’re out and about.

Future proof your business

Gain first-mover benefit on a definite upward trend to future-proof your site. Retailers should act now, given the rising competition for grid connections and a limited number of chances in critical locations.

Customer attraction and loyalty

Today’s customers expect simple and convenient service in all aspects of their lives. If an EV driver can shop and charge at the same time, this is likely to be a significant draw and keep them coming back. There’s even more of a pull if you’re giving faster-charging rates than they can get at home.

Increased dwell time

It’s only logical that customers will be glad to spend more time at a location if they can take advantage of vehicle charging during that time – and this will almost certainly lead to more spending. Given that the typical EV driver’s salary is substantially above the national average, this is a significant factor.

Reduce your carbon footprint

Many retailers who have installed charging stations have seen significant decreases in CO2 emissions from tourist travel. Not only have they reduced their carbon impact, but they can now confidently promote their sustainable credentials, which will likely result in more business and new hires.

Gain valuable customer insight

EV charging allows drivers to interact with a business when they stop by to charge, allowing businesses to learn more about their customers and even convey incentives and offers, increasing the possibility of repeat visits. As a business or owner of a shopping centre, you’ll almost certainly need to consider adding fast or rapid chargers, which allow visitors to charge to 80% in 20 minutes to 4 hours.

Flexible pricing models

Every business is unique, which is why when it comes to EV charging price, flexibility is crucial.  The Commercial Solution from Solar Planet comes in a variety of configurations, all of which provide our charge point “hosts” complete control.

The benefits of EV charge points for developers & landlords

Future proof your property

In the United Kingdom, new construction standards mandate the installation of one electric vehicle charging point in every residential structure with a parking space. In addition, new non-residential structures and non-residential buildings undergoing major innovation will require one charge outlet for every five parking spaces. Existing non-residential structures with more than 20 parking spots will be required to provide at least one charging station by 2025.

Attract new tenants

As the popularity of electric vehicles grows, more tenants will expect to be able to charge their vehicles at home. Additionally, firms renting office space are increasingly wanting to provide charging stations for their employees, power their new EV fleets, and demonstrate their commitment to sustainability.

Earn extra money

Depending on the cost model you choose for your charge stations, you may be able to recoup your investment by charging for electricity.

What if I don’t have solar PV yet?

No problem. If you’re thinking of going solar in the future we can install an EV charging point in your home or business, connect it to your main electricity supply and make sure the setup is compatible with solar PV systems.

How long does it take to charge an electric car?

This depends on the size of your car battery and the speed of the charging point. With a 7kW charging point, it takes just under 8 hours to fully charge an electric car with a 60kWh battery.

How long do EV batteries last?

Most manufacturers have a five to eight-year warranty on their batteries. However, the current prediction is that an electric car battery will last from 10 – 20 years before they need to be replaced.
