3. Attract high-value customers
With EV adoption growing fast, there's no shortage of EV drivers looking for a convenient place to charge. Transforming your business into an EV charging destination allows you to capture this growing market and attract new customers. Once you have EV chargers installed, your location will become visible on popular public charging maps. This boosts your brand visibility allowing drivers to find your location. Plus, did you know that EV drivers are nearly twice as wealthy as the average American? This means your EV-driving customers will likely spend more on higher-end items every time they visit.

Environmental concerns are increasingly top-of-mind for your customers. By having charging stations on your property, you can establish your business as an eco-conscious organization—and even earn some prestigious sustainability certifications.
