EV Charger Installation for Retail Locations
Upstate Electrical Solutions Can Install Electric Vehicle Chargers at Your Business
Increasingly, your customers are driving electric vehicles or EVs. In fact, within 20 years, about 70% of the cars on the road are expected to be EVs
— and those drivers will all want to have a place to charge their cars. You can attract those potential customers to your business when you provide EV charging stations.
As a business owner, you're in a position to provide a valuable service to your customers — one that will also attract prospective customers to your establishment. When you opt for EV charger installation
, you issue an invitation to every EV owner within driving range that you welcome their business, and even more: that you understand their needs and have their best interests at heart. You also make a statement that you care about our planet's climate and are taking steps toward sustainability — a message that's dear to the heart of the Millennial and Gen Z customers you're courting.
Your Customers Want to Charge Their Electric Vehicles
is a real thing. That's the feeling an EV driver gets as they watch their battery's charge drop-down, mile by mile, on the screen of their car. When they can, they'll head to a business where they know they can find a car charger. That way, they can juice up their vehicle while running their errands or enjoying a good meal, returning to their car to find it charged and ready to go.
When you install an EV charging station, you instantly make your business more appealing to all those EV drivers. They'll see you listed on sites such as PlugShare.com
, which connect EV owners to charging stations — in essence, providing advertising exposure for your business. Many EV drivers now plan their errands around where they can charge. Through EV charger installation, you put yourself on an exclusive list. And you're not doing this for free! You can bill customers for the electricity they use if you want. Or think about adding EV charging as a benefit in your shop's loyalty program, so it becomes even one more reason for customers to come back to you again and again.
EV Charger Installation from Upstate Electrical Services
We can answer all your questions about installing EV chargers, including what types of chargers your premises can handle. In most cases, your building's electrical grid has the capacity to handle Level 2 chargers
, which charge at 208 to 240 volts. These EV chargers deliver a nice, steady charge of 45 miles an hour — enough to satisfy the range anxiety of your EV-driving customers while also giving them plenty of time to browse your store or relax in your restaurant.
If your building can handle a greater electrical load, let's talk about Level 3 chargers. These are akin to the Tesla SuperChargers
, delivering up to 80% charge in 30 minutes or less. EV drivers will head out of their way to find these Level 3 chargers when their battery is dropping into the scary ranges. That means these chargers are ideal for bringing new customers to your door. And if these are intriguing to you but your older building doesn't have the electrical capacity for them, we should talk about how we can help you upgrade.
When you install EV chargers, you have the option to choose networked charging stations. These allow you to accept credit cards as payment and come with added benefits. Each networked EV charging station
is monitored to measure exactly how much electricity was delivered, making it super easy to bill EV drivers automatically.
