Okay, I guess every one of us is aware of the changing world. Electric cars are on market. Every time I’m on the road, I see electric cars. This is an opportunity for those that want to start their own business but do not know which business.
Since 2008, president Obama has promoted hybrid vehicles. There is no doubt that in future everyone will be driving hybrid (electric cars) vehicles. I mean those cars that don’t use petroleum (gas) whatever you call it. In fact some say in future, one will have to buy the hybrid of choice and lease the battery..lol. These special batteries are important in electric cars because it is the special batteries that keep the electric hybrid car running. Why is this so long to introduce. Well, I wanted to explain that electric cars require recharge. They are similar to cell phones. When the energy gets low, you have to recharge the cell phone. So in future, we will be driving to electric car charging stations to recharge our electric cars. Those of you who studied basic economics principles know what I’m talking about. As more and more electric cars are on the road, the more need for electric car changing stations.
Basically, you need to know automotive vehicle skills. If you are an amateur, don’t worry just educate yourself first. Things important to learn in an electric car charging station are differences between acid based batteries and lithium-ion batteries that are used in electric cars or hybrid cars.
Your customers are those people who are currently driving electric cares or hybrid cars. Also, those people contemplating of buying electric cars or hybrid cars future will be your customers.
The advantage is that people will want to stop remembering plugging to charge their electric car batteries. So they would drive their electric cars with the battery to your electric car charging station to charge the battery.
Where can you start you electric car charging business?
If you are based in U.S, contact your local authorities. This might be different in other countries. One thing you need to do is making sure that your electric car charging station is located in a busy place to serve large numbers of people. Also, you electric car charging station should be easily accessible and spotted from the main highway.
What types of license and registration do you need to start electric car charging station?
In United States, licensing requirements would be the same as for any automotive type of establishment as well as certification in handling hazardous materials. For detailed information on hazardous material contact U.S Environmental Protection Agency or you local authorities. I’m not sure about other countries. Remember that even in U.S, every local county, town, city have their own codes to enforce. It is therefore important to check before starting any type of business.
What are the risks of starting electric car charging station?
I did good research, electric car charging statin business are risk free. Except if you are in a country, state with no or few electric cars. This is why you should do your own market research before starting.
