Wondering where to find electric car charging stations Adelaide? Or perhaps you want to know how much it will cost to fill the tank. Maybe you’re even looking to discover whether you can turn a profit off this relatively new technology. We’ve compiled the answers to these questions and more below. Read on to find out:
Electric car charging stations Adelaide are fairly accessible these days as both the public and private sector have invested significantly in this type of technology over the past few years. Additionally, more than six hundred sites have put their hands up for government funded station installation over the coming period so there should be no shortage of places to fill up your vehicle. It is important to remember, however, that stations which offer shorter, smaller charges are most common in metropolitan locations, while larger capacity sites are more common on highways and in more rural areas. This means that if you’re wanting a large fill, you may have to wait a bit if you’re juicing up in the city.
How Much Does It Cost To Fill The Tank?
With most standard electric car charging stations Adelaide it will cost between 30c and 60c per kWh. This means it would cost between $11 and $50 to get your car from empty to full. Factors that influence this will include the size of the vehicle and expected run time as well as whether you’re juicing up using public or private facilities. These prices will also obviously vary on how your power is generated, for example, do you have your own sustainable supply such as solar panels or a hydroponic system, or are you reliant upon an external electricity supplier who picks and chooses their rates.
There’s a common misconception that because electric car charging stations Adelaide quite obviously use power, they cannot be used in wet weather. In actuality, as long as your station has the appropriate weather resistance and certifications, it can be used rain, hail or shine. Stations will have directions for safe operation on their labels and in their instructions and we strongly recommend following these guidelines in order to prevent injury or damage to equipment.
While you may be wondering whether the market is already saturated, the good news is that it is actually possible to profit by offering electric car charging stations Adelaide. If you run a business that has a decent customer base of vehicle drivers, a privately owned station could function as a secondary income stream. You’ll obviously need to do a cost vs benefit analysis to see whether your profits and projected increase in loyalty and customer base will be worth the initial purchase price.
When considering purchasing a fleet of vehicles many companies are put off by the perceived cost of powering them off site. The good news is that it is definitely possible to power your fleet with private electric car charging stations Adelaide and, as noted above, it isn’t actually all that expensive to fill their batteries off site if you can’t afford a station that can service your whole fleet up front.
