Who would run an EV charging business? Complicated installs, runaway costs, reliability issues, ICEd charging bays and charging equipment that becomes obsolete long before it has a hope of paying for itself. Then add councils who demand a revenue share based on unrealistic profit expectations, frustrated drivers struggling with accessing the chargers, complaints about subscriptions and billing issues. Who would want to become a charge point operator?
It wasn't supposed to be this way. And whilst EV charge point operators tighten their belts and hope for a brighter future, the problems with infrastructure are getting worse: existing and expensive rapid charging points are out of date and need replacement, AC charging points are either unused or deliver a tiny charge to hybrid owners leaving pure EV owners high and dry. Large corporates see a low barrier to entry and are crowding into the market, making it even harder to compete. There may be a good time coming, but it's a good time coming. The losses are stacking up. Not every Charge Point Operator around today will be in business tomorrow.
It's time for change. And we can help.
Our designers began developing EV charging technology back in 2006, and helped set up the world's first charge point operator back in 2007. We've been at the forefront of the technology ever since, and we've learnt a thing or two along the way.
Like, for example, what makes for a successful charge point installation. An installation that works commercially as well as technically. An EV charging system that won't regularly get ICEd up and that brings drivers back time and again to regularly charge their vehicles. An EV charging system that provides sufficient capacity for everyone to get a charge.
Our systems work for both hybrids and pure EVs alike and maximises your return on investment. The result? An EV charging hub that can be installed virtually anywhere, with a typical payback of between three and four years. The cost? From under £20,000 for a five vehicle charging hub with both AC and DC charging capabilities that is suitable for on-street, in car park, workplace or fleet charging facilities, all powered from a conventional 63-125A three-phase power supply. Want something bigger? Our PowerTech DC system scales from six to eighteen DC chargers delivering 350kW to every charge point, with the ability to grow to 720kW charging in the future. The payback? Typically between three and four years in a busy city-centre car park, business park or park and ride.
Of course, we know that one size does not fit all, and that is why our products are bespoke and built to order. Looking for a dedicated EV charging hub offering 350kW chargers? We've got you covered. Want a rapid charging hub that doesn't cost the earth to install, but that can be upgraded in the future as consumer demand increases? That's our speciality. Have a restricted grid connection and need to find a solution? Give us a call.
When you speak to other charge point manufacturers, you'll hear about the technical specifications. When you speak to us, we'll discuss the business opportunities and tailor our product around your needs. We have a EV Charging Income Calculator that forecasts income from each charge point based on existing traffic flows and projected uptake of EVs and hybrids over the next twenty years. Working with you, we can identify the right technology for your business to ensure you have a successful and profitable business in the future.
