Most people are well aware of the benefits of the electric vehicle but as a business, do you know what the benefits are for you to supply the necessary infrastructure to support them? Below we have listed five benefits for your business that can be achieved by installing EV charging points:
1. FUTURE-PROOFING YOUR BUSINESS
The transition from fossil fuel to electric vehicles is just around the corner. And over the next decade the government will be placing more and more pressure on businesses that involve a lot of cars to make changes to their automobile habits. With more pressure will come more time and restraints and higher demand. Start reaping the benefits now and show your visitors, staff and clients that your business is ready for the future of electric vehicles.
2. ESSENTIAL BUSINESS FACILITIES
The main reasons that a business should provide charging points for electric vehicles:
As the transition is being made towards electric vehicles, businesses will start being expected to provide a way to accommodate this on their premises. If a client or customer were to drive a long distance to get to your site, their electrical vehicle would probably need a recharge.
Businesses that have essential business facilities for electric cars will benefit from installing charging points in the same way that customers that use supermarkets for their petrol stations while also investing in their products.
3. ENCOURAGE NEW CUSTOM TO YOUR BUSINESS
Having EV chargers on your premises can only incentivise and encourage new custom. Electric car users are always trying to find more convenient ways to charge their vehicles, so whilst they may not immediately change their shopping habits, if their usual shop does not have charging points then your site would appear more attractive and useful to them.
Furthermore, whilst attracting new custom, EV chargers also encourage a longer customer visit duration. The average charging time for sufficient mileage, is roughly an hour. This means the customer potentially has an hour to make full use of your site and hopefully inturn putting money back into your business.
4. INCREASE AWARENESS FOR YOUR BUSINESS
Once you have had an EV charger installed on your premises, your business will be included on smartphone apps. These applications allow electric vehicle owners to plan routes, locate premises with electric charging points and create discussion. Some of these apps also allow users to leave reviews based on their experience. Good reviews build brand loyalty and a successful charging session can inspire users to return and influence others to visit your business.
5. REDUCE YOUR BUSINESS CARBON FOOTPRINT
Businesses these days are constantly trying to strive to take an ecological approach wherever they can. The main focus of current businesses is to improve their carbon footprint wherever possible. While the above points have covered benefits you can gain from your workers and consumers, reducing your carbon footprint can directly impact how you business functions.
By using an electric vehicle fleet, you can take control of your environmental impact and your costs. Save time by charging vehicles up on-site during company downtime and even used the Workplace Charging Scheme to get money off your charging points installation.
There’s a long way to go until the UK can consider itself completely Green but customers and clients respect a company that is aware of its own impact on the environment which can directly improve your brand image, giving potential customers and employees even more reason to look positively at your business.
At 3s Northampton Ltd, we work with you to assess the requirements of your business to make a decision about the best charging points for your premises.
