Why Installing EV Charging Stations Can Be a Blessing for Your Business

Why Installing EV Charging Stations Can Be a Blessing for Your Business

The age of the EV (Electric Vehicle) is here! Whilst the internal combustion engine’s death knell has been repeatedly sounded, it’s likely that these gasoline and diesel machines will be around for a few decades more. However, the EV is rapidly catching up. Did you know that Norway has the world’s highest sales of EVs in 2021, and 5.6 million EVs were sold worldwide in 2021, representing a 83% increase over 2020.

Canada is jumping onto the EV bandwagon in a major way. Did you know that if you purchase a new EV in BC, you could be eligible for up to $8,000 in rebates There are over forty EV models on sale in Canada right now, from manufacturers such as BMW, Chevrolet, Ford, Honda, Hyundai, Kia, Mini, Nissan, Toyota and Volkswagen. Oh, and let’s not forget the trail-blazing brand from our friendly neighbor that made EVs fun, fast and funky, Tesla.

With all this, you might be tempted to install a Level 2 EV Charger for your business. If you’re in the market for this, we at EVSOL Energy are experts at Level 2 EV Charger installations, with over ten years of experience, strong partnerships with top manufacturers and solid work backed by the EVSOL Guarantee.

If you’re not convinced that a Level 2 EV Charger is right for your business, let us present some reasons as to why you should reconsider your decision, not just for today but tomorrow and day after as well.

EVs are Becoming More Popular

As you have read in our intro, the EV market is growing at a very healthy rate. EVs are becoming more popular, and people buy them for a variety of reasons. Whether it’s to save the environment, drive something techy and futuristic, optimize running costs or just keep up with the neighbors, the tidal wave of EVs is not predicted to slow down. Manufacturers keep jumping onto the EV bandwagon, and many have pledged to phase out internal combustion engined offerings in the future as well. Timelines vary, but some manufacturers may have all-EV line upsby as early as 2030.

EVs Can Be Driven Further, and People are Driving Them Futher

Ten years ago, an EV with a 200-mile range was as rare as hens’ teeth. Today, you can find at least twenty models on the market that will easily best that range. This means that EVs are no longer town errand runners, but reasonable options for medium length trips. In fact, they can be used for longer trips if fast charging facilities are available along the way. So, if you’ve got a restaurant, shopping mall, rest area, department store, motel, hotel or any place of business with a decent-sized carpark that’s along a major route for long-distance travel, consider installing a few Level 2 EV Chargers, or even the superfast Level 3 ones that can literally recharge an EV in the time it takes to finish a full hot coffee. These may require some electrical work to be done at your electrical wall panel which we at EVSOL Energy are competent with, so get in touch with us.

EV Chargers Will Increase Customers to Your Business

Is your business a B2C establishment, particularly in the area of retail or hospitality, such as a restaurant or café? Installing an EV Charger, be it a Level 2 EV Charger or Level 3 EV Charger will generate business for you. EV users will drop by to charge their cars and since charging is not yet as quick as a gasoline or diesel top-up, they will be compelled to spend a few minutes at the very least. Lingering leads to interest, which means that they are much more likely to make a purchase.

EV Chargers Aren't as Expensive to Install as You Think

Installing an EV Charger isn’t as expensive as you might expect. Unless you’re going for a complex, multi-charger installation with Level 3 capabilities and plenty of bells-and-whistles, it shouldn’t even crack five figures. Furthermore, you could be eligible for local government rebates when installing EV Chargers at your place of business, particularly if they are for the use of the public. We at EVSOL Energy are knowledgeable in the rebates you may be eligible for, so give us a call and we’d be happy to visit your site and discuss your requirements. Our transparent pricing means that you know exactly what you are paying for, and we offer a lifetime labor warranty.

It's a Revenue Generator

An EV Charger is a revenue generator, as you can levy charging fees on patrons who wish to charge their cars at your station. Electricity isn’t free after all, and EV users know that. You should aim to set your pricing to be fair, ensuring that you cover your costs and obtain a healthy profit, without trying to be too expensive and make a quick buck. As more and more establishments install EV Chargers, competition is going to heat up as well, so bear that in mind, lest you price yourself out of the market and end up with an expensive paperweight in your parking lot.

It Shows That You Care

The simple act of installing an EV Charger, especially if it’s in an area where there’s a dearth of EV Chargers can also send a stronger positive message to the community. It shows that you care for them, that you’re in tune with the current and future trends of mobility, and that you care for the environment too. For the ultimate environmental kudos, consider installing a rooftop solar system to go hand-in-hand with your EV Chargers, especially if your area receives ample sunshine and you have a large roof area. Rooftop solar is increasingly popular as a sustainable generator of electricity, and there are rebates to be gotten on rooftop solar installations too. We at EVSOL Energy are experts in rooftop solar as well, and we’d be happy to visit your property, have a look around, evaluate your current and future electrical needs and propose value-driven solutions.
