Why your business might benefit from an electric vehicle charging point
Electric cars are on the rise, and ownership is only expected to increase. Over the past few years, many organisations have hopped on the trend, with businesses fitting electric car charging points, and many retailers fitting a charging point into their customer parking areas. Here we discuss why your business might benefit from doing the same:
Does my business need an EV charging point?
Your need for an electric vehicle charging point will vary depending on the type of business you are running. This will also affect why you may need one, and who will benefit. For example:
• If you operate company cars, you may be looking to go electric in the future. In this case, you’ll need a charging point in place.
• You company may hire individuals that drive electric cars, for example, taxi services.
• Electric commercial fleets, for example, logistics companies, will need to accommodate for charging company-owned vehicles.
• If you’re a large office, you may have employees that drive electric cars. With 75% of electric car drivers currently being unable to charge their cars at work, this is something you may want to change. [source: https://newmotion.com/en/the-benefits-of-workplace-charging/]
