Why should my business install an EV Charge-Point?
Free Advertising - Installing an EV charger offers you the opportunity to list your business on the nationwide map of charging stations, reaching over 2000 EV /PHEV drivers daily.
Charging Options - With our EV charge-points, we offer you the following options:
No charge – the user operates the charger without a charge. This would be suitable for private use or where the owner does not wish to charge the user.
RFID card meter – the user receives a card, for example at reception, which the owner can charge for or can offer as a free service. This option is suitable for hotels, factories, public sector organisations, etc.
Online metering – The owner sets a tariff (charging rate) which is then programmed in to the charging system. This system enables the user to operate an account on their smart phone which they can top up (see our Online Metering Flowchart below for more detail). This account is then charged automatically as they use the charger. The same account is used for any compatible meter nationwide.
Re-claim the cost of installation - The Accelerated Capital Allowance scheme allows companies re-claim the cost of EV charge-point installation within the same year. Find out if you are eligible here.
Attract new customers - EV drivers are constantly researching which bars/hotels/restaurants offer EV charging facilities and visiting these as they have the added convenience of re-charging.
Future proof your business - The number of electric cars on the road is rapidly increasing year on year. By 2021, the EU Directive 2014 / 94 requires that 10% of parking spaces have EV charging facilities. By installing a charge-point now, you will remain ahead of the curve.
Benefits of installing a Commercial EV Charger
Can I generate revenue from a charge-point?
Our Industrial charge-points come with a variety of options to charge customers for the usage of the charger:
Smart Card Prepayment meter - The user "purchases" use of the charger from the owner. Value can be added to a Smart card, & the owner/operator can set the tariffs.
RFID Prepayment meter - Excellent for employers wishing to offer free charging to employees. Users will be issued with an RFID card where they will "tag on & tag off"- similar to a Leap Card. This also provides additional security.
Online metering – The user sets up an account on their smart phone which they then use to pay for charging at any compatible charge point. The owner of the charger sets the tariff.
