EV Canopies

With an increasing number of electric cars and vehicles on the roads it’s becoming important for businesses to ensure they’re catering to these changing habits and needs. Electric vehicle charging infrastructure is both cost effective and sustainable, offering a safe and dry area to plug in electric and hybrid vehicles, electric vehicle canopies are a great addition to a number of businesses.

What Are The Benefits Of Electric Vehicle Canopies?

These modern and well equipped charging facilities will help you make the most of your parking area, whilst also making a statement on sustainability and reducing carbon emissions. Unlike regular petrol stations, EV charging stations can be few and far between, so installing an electric vehicle charging canopy on your premises will become invaluable.

Installing multiple electric vehicle charge points outside your business comes with a range of key benefits, we’ve pulled together just a few:

Sustainable and Eco-Friendly

One of the best ways to help boost the uptake of electric cars and other vehicles, is to provide modern, well-equipped and easily accessible charging facilities. As the world moves towards a greener future these solar powered options provide clean and renewable energy which can be used on-site or to charge electric or hybrid vehicles. This helps to generate a sustainable future with an eco-friendly system for charging vehicles.

2030 Legislation: Ban On Petrol And Diesel Cars

In a huge milestone for climate action, the UK government has announced that they will ban sales of new petrol and diesel cars and vans by car manufacturers in 2030. This historic step towards net-zero will evidently see a huge rise in demand for electrical vehicles which comes with it an increased need for charging stations to help keep up with and facilitate this transition.

Potential Use For Advertising

Electric vehicle canopies will also help to increase land value and provide additional revenue opportunities. Providing options for personalised branding or advertising, along with the choice,  if you add the addition for EV charging units, to charge visitors for using the facilities. This over time will offset canopy cost all together.
