Almost every industry in the UK has been ground to a halt as a result of Covid-19. Many businesses have found ingenious ways to keep the money coming through the door and a huge number have finally found a way of taking their business online or adopting remote work practices. With that said, many premises are lying empty during this time as physical stores and offices are have been forced to close.
At the same time, many businesses have been given access to grant funding and loans from the government to help them to survive during this period. While this money may be necessary to cover the day-to-day running costs of the business, it may leave some extra with no obvious use at the moment. We have the answer.
If the premises are shut and you have some spare money, this is the perfect time to make the changes to your workspace that you have been putting off. There is nothing worse than disruption to business operations when you could be making money. Business owners grudge shutting down offices, warehouses and shops for upgrades and renovations. However, given that many of these are closed at the moment, this window could be a great opportunity to get the work done. One such upgrade could be the installation of electric vehicle charge points.
Given the amount of grants available at the moment for commercial charge point installation, the possible savings to be made on electrification of your fleet and the potential tax savings for employees on their company cars , most businesses should seriously be thinking about the change to electric. With lead times on our commercial installs currently around 2 months from enquiry to installation, this final transition period out of lockdown could allow for these changes to be made before anyone returns to work.
We understand that many businesses are struggling during this time but investing in electric now could make major savings moving forward and will also give your business significant green credentials. If you are a company owner or manager who is considering installing charge points at your premises or converting your fleet to electric, either partially or fully, there is nothing preventing this from happening now. To get the process started, give us a call on 0845 862 8890 or visit evchargepoints.com. A member of our technical team will happily talk you through the process or arrange a no-commitment consultation or socially-distanced site visit. We look forward to hearing from you.
