If you work at a facility such as a shopping centre, having the option of EV charging for consumers who own an EV will make the establishment convenient and attractive for them to visit.

Businesses can benefit financially by using EV’s and can benefit through incentives of going electric, such as cutting costs off fuel duty and road tax. There are a variety of government grants and schemes that will aid businesses across the country.
