Customised Charging: Tailoring Tariffs for Workplace EV Infrastructure

Posted June 19, 2023

With company overheads on the rise and the cost of electricity still incredibly high, a lot of businesses are interested in how they can cover their costs or even generate revenue through their workplace EV charging infrastructure. Because we use the very latest technology, our charging management software gives you full control over your EV chargers – and that includes the ability to fully customise your charging tariffs.

Workplace EV Infrastructure

Customised solutions for maximum flexibility


Our EV charging solutions for businesses are designed to provide the highest level of flexibility so you can tailor them to your specific requirements. Our software platform’s intuitive dashboard lets you customise your chargers and their tariffs, enabling you to lock them down at certain times or on certain days and change tariff charges according to times of day or user. The possibilities are practically limitless.


Deciding how much you want to charge and who those rates apply to is entirely up to you. The price per kilowatt is laid out by your electricity tariff, but you can use the software to programme multiple tariffs for different users. You might decide that certain drivers can have free charging, whilst others are subsidised, and visitors might be charged a different rate entirely.


Generating revenue


A lot of businesses choose to generate income from their chargers. The good news is, with a Plug Me In EV charging infrastructure, apart from a small transaction fee, you keep all the profits. That applies whether you’ve bought the chargers outright or are on our Charging as a Service scheme.


It’s worth noting that if you set your charging tariffs too high, your employees and visitors may be disincentivised to use them, unless they have no other alternative. You need to carefully consider what other options are available to them and how much they cost.


Seamless user experience


There are also plenty of options for activating the chargers and ensuring the user receives the appropriate tariff. Options include activating the charger via an RFID (radio-frequency identification) cards, contactless cards, or by scanning a QR code that’s on the charger. Where payment is required this can be deducted from the driver’s payment card, with any profits being deposited directly into your company’s nominated business bank account on a monthly basis.


Paving the way for a greener, more efficient future


Workplace EV charging presents a valuable opportunity for businesses to optimise revenue, enhance sustainability efforts, and provide added convenience to employees and visitors. With Plug Me In's advanced solutions and customisable features, you can unlock the full potential of your charging infrastructure, paving the way for a greener, more efficient future.
