What are EV Charging Stations?

Simply put, an electric vehicle charging station supplies energy to plug-in electric vehicles. Your electric vehicle charging station can be combined with your solar system to optimize savings.

Business Benefits of EV Charging Stations

The installation of EV Chargers has proven to have a positive impact on business no matter the actual business type. The list below outlines some of the main ways that EV chargers can boost or drive business:

Attracting New Customers

The installation of EV chargers at your business can mark you on maps as a charging location. Therefore, your business will quite literally stand out on a map for people with EV’s searching for charging points. This will attract people looking to charge their cars regardless of their need or plans to visit your business and therefore increase the likelihood of their engagement with your business.

Through this, the EV chargers can even introduce your business to people that were not aware of it before, therefore creating a whole new stream of potential customers. Ultimately, where before a person may not have had a need to stop at your business or even known about it, they can now be pointed directly to your business to take a lengthy charging stop.[1]

Customer Engagement

As hinted at above, EV chargers can also extend the amount of time that a customer engages with your business. This in turn can increase the likelihood of additional sales. A standard “short” charge can take at least fifteen minutes.

Therefore, if you have a business with quick customer turnover, the EV charger can literally force customers to take more time at your business, and as mentioned, increase the likelihood of sales.[1]

Business Reputation

A less thought of, but extremely strong point, is the positive impact EV chargers can have on the way customers perceive your business. The chargers show people that not only are you thinking about environmental issues which are as hot a topic as they have ever been but, just as importantly, you are also thinking about the needs of your customers at a time when there is an ever-increasing demand from customers for charging options.

This can greatly differentiate your business from businesses similar to it and give you a competitive advantage in attracting new customers.[1]

Customer Loyalty/Customer Retention

A result of the combination of the points listed above is the opportunity for EV chargers to drive customer loyalty at your location and help retain customers that might have not before considered being a regular patron of your business.[1] The potential with this lies in the fact that once a customer gains the additional value of being able to charge their car at your business, they may automatically deem your business as superior to others or at a minimum, a business at which they can serve multiple needs with one stop unlike other locations.

This in turn can drive these customers to re-visit your business instead of going to other ones and as a result generate a new constant stream of regular customers and sales.

Additional Revenue

On top of the customer related aspects EV chargers have to offer your business, a clear-cut benefit is the revenue that you can make charging people to use your EV chargers. Depending on the type of EV chargers installed and the form of your business, you can choose to set the price you will charge customers to use your EV chargers and generate a new revenue stream for your business.

Fast EV chargers at high turn-over locations, such as convenience stores, can generate up to thousands of dollars in charging revenue per month.
