The Enel X offer provides for the installation of charging stations on public land (such as municipal areas, provincial highways etc.) or on private land for public use
This offer is aimed at businesses who wish to install charging stations in their corporate parking areas; Shopping Centres and malls; and structures that handle a flow of guests, visitors and tourists. This type of installation requires a separate connection, registered to Enel X, so that the consumption costs of the charging station can be separated out from other types of power use.
The offer includes:
Connection of the charging station
Installation of the charging station
The charging stations installed on private land are the same as those installed on public land, used by EV drivers to charge their electric vehicles.
1. Offer for Businesses
The areas where vehicles are parked for most time, e.g. residences or workplaces, make the best locations for low cost EV charging. The lack of a garage or parking space may prevent some EV owners from being able to charge at home. This makes the option of charging at work an incentive for purchasing an electric vehicle.
Installing charging stations in a workplace has the following advantages:
Staff Loyalty and encouragement: any employee who owns an EV, will be grateful to their employer for providing the service;
Charging service available to others: the installation of the charging station and the service provided by the company will make a positive impression on clients or visitors;
Brand image: the active promotion of this service improves a company’s image and encourages environmental and ecological awareness;
It encourages the conversion of a corporate fleet to EV: the company can prepare an EV fleet that will use the same charging station.
2. Offer for Shopping Centres
A shopping centre (or mall) with a charging station will catalyse the interest of EV owners making it easy for the customer to chose to use this mall over another because of the charging service offered. Moreover, the ecological choice will enhance the reputation of the shopping centre. In this case, the client would only use the station for partial charging, not for the time necessary for a full charge (= more or less 5 hours).
3. Offer for tourist and visitor structures
Tourist and visitor structures are the perfect locations for a charging station. Guests owning EVs will prefer businesses that offer this service whether they use it during meal times or for a longer stay. In this case the clients will be able to partially charge, topping up the energy used in the recent trip to reach the structure, or complete a full charge overnight.
