Can electric car charging be a business?

Yes, electric car charging can be a business.

The simple answer is yes.

Electric vehicle (EV) drivers are limited to charging rates of about 3 to 46 miles of range per hour if they have Level 2 EV chargers installed. This might be enough for EV owners who only need to top up for shorter daily commutes.

But this changes once you take into account longer commutes and road trips. If you really want to kick it up a notch, DC fast chargers can charge your EV in approximately 30 minutes. But given the installation and maintenance costs (around $50,000), they aren’t exactly suitable for private use. However, they are good for public use – which presents a huge opportunity for those looking to turn a profit.

You can just simply charge vehicle owners for the electricity they use at your station—but there are other ways charging stations can earn money: You can offer subscription services where customers pay a monthly fee or annual fee for unlimited use; you could also offer package deals with other services like car washes or oil changes; or even offer free WiFi and charging for your customers while they wait (which will help keep them from leaving their cars unattended).
