Put your company on the map - why investing in EV charging stations will make your business money



With the government’s 2030 ban on the sale of petrol and diesel cars, electric vehicles are quickly becoming the norm. With more people switching to EVs, the need for charging stations is ever-increasing.


As a business, now is the perfect time to install EV charging stations on your premises to get ahead of the curve and reap several benefits. Continue reading to discover reasons why you should invest in business EV chargers.


There is a lot of money to be made from installing an EV charge point. The majority of businesses will see a return on their investment within three years, and a recent survey found that 46% of businesses with EV charge points have reported an increase in revenue.


Investing in EV charge points in your business will help attract new customers and increase the number of visits from existing customers. As your business becomes an EV charging point hub, you could also earn revenue from charging fees.


The OZEV Workplace Charging Scheme reduces the purchase and installation cost of electric vehicle charging points for the workplace by 75%, up to £350 (including VAT) per socket. Companies can claim up to a maximum of 40 sockets meaning that you could potentially save £14,000.


Moreover, if you plan to switch to an electric fleet, you can make considerable cost savings. With an electric fleet, you immediately cut out fuel expenses. Moreover, there are significant tax incentives for a business with fully electric company cars. For example, HMRC has introduced lower benefit-in-kind (BIK) rates for electric vehicles.


Put your business on the map


Public EV chargers are listed on EV charging station maps (PlugShare, OpenChargeMap) and are a good way to attract people to your business. Whether you have goods to sell or not, an EV driver will easily find your business and possibly learn more about it.


Some EV charger manufacturers also give you the option to personalise each EV station with your company branding, which can further enhance the visibility of your business.


EV charging stations are one of the best marketing tools. They are seen by the public when they visit your business or when they drive by.


Having EV charging stations show consumers you care about the air pollution levels and air quality of your community, the growth of electric vehicle infrastructure, and improving upon the technologies you have.
