Electric Vehicle Charging in association with
Workplace and Commercial Electric Vehicle Charging
Adding a charger to your workplace can be a great way to support your staff and customers to use electric vehicles, however it has to be right for the business, meet the business needs and ensure that it works as an asset.
We have installed chargers for many businesses, working with the client to achieve value for money within budget while meeting their user needs. We can carry out all the groundworks in house, should they be required, also installing parking guards, bump rails and underground ducting.
During our free survey and quotation, we will discuss with you how best to achieve installation and the ways it can be achieved. We can answer any questions, while presenting options for delivery. These can include
- Open charge for employees and visitors
- Key fob / app controlled authorisation charge
- Measured charge where the use can be limited to a specific amount of time or during solar energy generation
- Pay per charge, for users to pay for the energy used, at a rate set by the EV management software, this could be a discounted rate, cost neutral rate or even a rate that generates income.
There are so many ways we can deliver EV charging at your workplace, that its best for us to attend your premises, carry out a free survey to assess your needs and evaluate them against what can be achieved with the infrastructure available.
We love to help, and with our passion for electric vehicle charging, we are always happy to visit you with our no pressure, no obligation survey.
