Looking for a way to improve the profitability of your business? Electric vehicle charging stations may be the key to the extra business you’re after. With electric cars becoming more and more popular over recent years, the demand for electric vehicle charging stations has never been higher. While the idea of EV stations at hotels and restaurant premises is relatively new, it pays to be an early adapter.

Why invest in electric vehicle charging stations?

  1. Meet the growing demand from customers

Corporate fleets and growing numbers of consumers are switching to electric cars and hybrids. In fact, in 2016 there has been an estimated 80,000 light duty electric vehicles on the UK roads, according to NextGreenCar reports. Drivers of electric vehicles will obviously be attracted to hotels and restaurants with electric vehicle charging points. By making the investment, you can attract new customers while enhancing current customers’ experiences.

  1. Combine EV charging with reward schemes

Many of today’s hotels and restaurants will already operate reward schemes – but electric vehicle charging stations can help enhance current schemes. Your business could combine charging with reward cards and loyalty schemes for an even better customer experience.

  1. Boost your image

It’s hard to get noticed in the hospitality industry but something that can help set you apart is a green initiative. By doing something to tackle climate change, you’re helping boost your business’ profile and attracting more and more customers to your brand. What’s more, it’s great for business PR too if you stand out as a leader in sustainability.

  1. Help your business meet sustainability goals

If you’re looking for ways to meet your environmental and sustainability goals, electrical vehicle charging stations are a great choice. They can add to an already established portfolio of practices and help your business meet energy-related goals such as a reduction in greenhouse gases.

  1. Employee attraction and retention

Electric vehicle charging stations aren’t just good for your customers and business. They also might help your business to attract and retain employees that either support environmental issues or have an electric vehicle of their own. Plus, with more and more millennials becoming passionate about green policies, they’ll appreciate efforts made to make a business green.
