4 Reasons To Consider Installing An Electrical Vehicle Charging Station At Your Business

Electric vehicles are the way of the future. As gas prices rise and fossil fuels become more scarce, more and more people are choosing to buy electric vehicles. The big challenge that comes up is charging them. Yes, vehicle owners can install chargers at home, but life would be a lot easier for everyone with an electric vehicle if business owners also stepped up and installed them at their places of business. But installing an EV charging station at your business does not just benefit EV owners — it also benefits you and your business in the following ways.

1. You'll come to be known for your green efforts.

More and more, customers want to buy from businesses that share their values. Many of your customers are probably already interested in and supportive of green living. By installing an EV charging station, you are demonstrating that you share those values and interests. Long-term, this is almost certain to attract more clients, and it will also make your current clients more loyal.

2. Your employees can save time and energy.

Do some of your employees have EVs? Chances are, even if they do not right now, they will in the next few years as EVs continue to become more common. When you have an EV charging station at your business, your employees can plug in while they're at work. This cuts down on the driving they have to do after work to visit a charging station, and it may even enable them to stay and work overtime more often since they won't have to rush home to charge their cars. Happy employees are productive employees, and productive employees earn you more money.

3. Clients can charge up while they are visiting.

When clients show up to your place of business for a meeting, they can charge their car while they're inside. This provides them with a convenience they can't get just anywhere and may prompt them to choose your business over a competitor. 

4. You can save on taxes.

When you buy and install an EV charging station at your place of business, your business may be eligible for certain tax credits and deductions. The less money you need to pay out in taxes, the more you ultimately get to keep for reinvesting in the business or paying employees.
