Why EV Chargers
The United Kingdom is among Europe’s largest markets for electric vehicles in 2022. Plug-in electric vehicle sales climbed by around 140 percent year-on-year, while hybrid electric vehicles recorded gains of about 12 percent. Hybrid and plug-in electric vehicles accounted for over 10 percent of car registrations in the United Kingdom in 2020, and demand for electrified vehicles among new car intenders in the United Kingdom stands at roughly 40 percent.
Many people considering EV are unable to have home EV points such as those who live in apartments.
EV charging points may also bring you extra business by customer visits or footfall, in turn your customers are more likely to spend longer on your premises and spend more money. This will increase so more revenue for your business and your customers will have a charged EV.
As the sales of Electric Vehicles steadily increase, the demand for more charging points will go up. So be a forward planning business and offer your customers the opportunity to use the EV point at your premises.
How much revenue will be your next question? We use the management service Monta which lets you set how much you charge per kWh so for example if you bought the electricity for £0.35 per kWh and sold it at the standard rate of £0.60 per kWh this would mean a mark-up of £0.25. On average people charge their EV for around half an hour to an hour, so in return, you would get anywhere from £8 for half an hour to £15 for the full hour per charging port you had. Most Dc commercial EV charging have anywhere from 2 to 4 ports.
If the charger was only used 6 times a day by 2 cars for 200 days this would mean on average you would bring in an extra £8,400 at the bottom end to £12,000 at the top end, this would be from 1 commercial EV charging, Unit with 2 ports and managed on the Monta app.
