EV is about to expand rapidly, with sales of EV cars increasing by 76% in 2021. With this level of expansion, there will soon be a demand for EV charging everywhere – not just at home. EV charging at work will soon become the new normal, and it would be prudent to get ahead of the game on this one.
EV charge points at work are a great recruitment tool, an applicant with an EV will be looking for company benefits like being able to charge at work.
Even if none of your staff currently have EVs, it won’t be long before they do. With the sale of ICE vehicles being outlawed in 2030, anyone who usually drives a new car will be shifting to EVs quickly.
The installation might even encourage some employees to adopt an EV early. If they are confident they can charge both at home and work, they may decide to upgrade their car to an EV earlier than 2030. This has huge benefits for your employees, who will be happier spending less money on fuel, and for the planet as they cut their emissions.
The other thing to consider is how your business looks from an outside perspective. Your customer is more likely to do business with a business that aligns with their personal views, if one of the first things they see when they visit your workplace is EV charge points, that is getting you off to a good start. It shows you are environmentally conscious and ethically aware of the impact of your business.
Providing EV charging at work is particularly important to consider if you are currently doing major renovations to your business. Keep costs down by installing them now rather than having to redo them in the future. If you are concerned about the new government requirement for EV installation during renovations, give us a call and we can help explain the new policy.
