CHARGING SOLUTIONS FOR DESTINATION LOCATIONS
Did you know that over 55% of EV drivers are concerned about the lack of publicly accessible charging infrastructure. Destination charging can help alleviate this concern, whilst generating additional revenue for your business.
Research suggests that EV drivers often choose their hotel based on the charging offering it provides, however 90% of hotels lack EV infrastructure. Chargers attract new guests, increase visibility amongst EV drivers & offer an additional revenue stream. ChargeGuru offers a complete design & installation solution and our software enables complete pricing flexibility of all of your chargers, across all your locations.
Often EV drivers spend more time shopping when charging is available. Increased dwell time normally results in increased basket spend. Charging infrastructure attracts & retains customers, whilst also unlocking an additional revenue stream. We'd generally recommend that shopping destinations follow "1 charge point for every 10 parking spaces", but we help you assess and plan a cost-effective, scaleable solution on a site-by-site basis.
RESTAURANTS & PUBS
Restaurants & pubs are perfectly placed to provide "top-up" charging to EV drivers. When customers spend 1-3 hours on site, they can plug-in and enjoy a welcome boost to their electric range. Charging provision helps attract new customers, increase visibility amongst EV drivers & offer an additional revenue stream. Our software solution enables you to set different tariffs for guests & non-guests and when you're open & closed.

OUR SOFTWARE SOLUTION: KEY FEATURES FOR DESTINATION CHARGING
EV GRANT SCHEMES FOR DESTINATION CHARGING
As a hotel owner or operator, you could claim up to £350 per charging socket through the Workplace Charging Scheme (WCS) - administered by the Office for Zero Emission Vehicles (OZEV).
The WCS reduces the purchase and installation cost of a new charging station by 75% per socket, up to a maximum of £350 per socket. A single business can claim for up to 40 sockets through the scheme.
At ChargeGuru, we help you understand exactly what grants are available to you in order to design & install the perfect charging solution. We'll then help you claim any OZEV grants which apply to your installation. That's EV charging, made simple.
