Customer Experience

Offering EV charging facilities makes it more convenient for EV drivers to visit your business and leads to higher satisfaction and loyalty.

Facilitating Fleet Transition to EVs

Installing chargers is essential if your company transitions its fleet to EVs. This strategic move reduces costs and emissions significantly.

Sustainability & ESG

"We opted for Smart Commercial Solar for our EV charging requirements because at the time, the solar project they were delivering for us was progressing smoothly—on time, on budget, and without any safety concerns. This gave us a strong sense of confidence in their abilities. So, when it came to installing EV chargers, there was no better option for us. We were already familiar with this company and knew we could rely on them."

Your EV FAQs

How many EV chargers should we install in our carpark?

The number of EV chargers you should install depends on several factors related to your business. To make an informed decision, consider the following aspects:

  1. Evaluate the number of EV drivers associated with your business, including employees, visitors, and other relevant parties. The more users you have, the more chargers you may need to accommodate them.

  2. Take your budget into account. Ensure that your budget covers both the installation costs and the ongoing energy usage to operate the chargers effectively.

  3. Consider your energy grid's capacity and the size of the chargers you plan to install. These factors will influence how many chargers your infrastructure can support without overloading the system.

  4. Decide whether you want to future-proof your business by accounting for potential increases in EV adoption and demand.

  5. Determine the primary purpose of installing EV chargers. Are you aiming for profit generation, gaining a competitive edge, or fulfilling internal needs? Clarifying this goal will help align your charger installation strategy with your overall business objectives.

By carefully considering these factors, you can determine the optimal number of EV chargers to install in your car park.

How much does installing EV chargers in our carpark cost?

The cost varies depending on the charger, but it typically amounts to between $2000 and $3500 per charger. This includes hardware (i.e. the physical charger), software, cabling, and 12 months operations and maintenance service.

EV chargers can be paid for upfront, via monthly repayments or can be bundled into a PPA.

How long does installing EV chargers take?

Commercial electric vehicle charger installation can take up to anywhere between 4 hours to 3 days. The time frame depends on the number of chargers and your existing electricity system.

My business already has solar installed. Can we power our EV chargers with that?

Yes, you can. While it depends on the brand of the EV charger, most chargers are able to utilise the solar power previously installed. If most charging on your premises will occur during daylight hours, powering them using solar-generated energy is a highly cost-efficient way to go.

Contact a member of our team for more details.

My business has not adopted commercial solar. Can Smart just install chargers?

Yes, absolutely. Smart can install EV chargers for businesses without solar. Contact one of our solar experts today to chat about your options.
