Added value for garden centre customers and employees

Charging facilities in the customer parking area increase the length of stay, resulting in a potentially higher turnover. Charging the car electrically at charging points while shopping thus leads to added value on both sides: for the customers and for the supplier. In addition to the charging function, a bidirectional wallbox offers another customer-oriented advantage: with the customer's consent, the vehicle can feed electricity back into the garden centre's power grid via the wallbox. Customers thus receive remuneration for the electricity they feed from the vehicle into the company grid, which can be charged directly when paying at the checkout. This leads to greater in-house electricity resources and creates less need to access grid electricity. And: customers pay less money for their purchases, and in return the garden centre receives inexpensive renewable electricity for its own consumption. 

At the same time, establishing a charging station infrastructure for employee vehicles is profitable. This gives your staff the opportunity to charge their vehicles conveniently and inexpensively from your electricity capacities during working hours, instead of having to do it at home. Electric company vehicles can also be charged conveniently and cost-effectively. Give your company the image of a "green" company. 

In the course of bidirectional wallbox use, the electricity available in the vehicles can even be used efficiently in two senses: either the electricity is fed back into the company's own grid and thus covers its own needs, or it is fed into the public grid, resulting in corresponding charges. If the wallbox infrastructure is embedded in a larger overall framework, e.g. by connecting it to a company's own electricity-producing photovoltaic system and other ecologically compatible generators, such as wind turbines, combined heat and power plants or fuel cells, this reduces the use of grid electricity while at the same time significantly reducing costs.
