In a nutshell

EV drivers are always looking for a chance to charge their car batteries and parking complexes are the perfect place to charge up.

Free Consultation

The demand for electric vehicle (EV) charging is rapidly increasing and customers are starting to expect to have these services when they pay to park. If you’re the operator of a parking lot, EV charging is the easiest and most lucrative service you can offer. After all, charging stations shouldn’t cause any extra work for you. If you’re worried about the electricity, the simultaneous use of multiple chargers can cause a strain on the electricity system but, Virta’s smart charging features will help you control the charging load.

The opportunity to provide electric car charging will attract a lot of EV drivers to your parking facilities. And, as your EV charging stations are added to the network operator’s station map, you’ll get even more visibility and new customers to your parking lot. You can set an economical price to attract more customers, or charge a bit more to get a direct return on your investment –  the decision is yours.

According to an updated EU's Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD), all new buildings and premises under renovation that have more than 10 parking spots must prepare for EV charging with pre-wiring for charging points. By adding EV charging stations, you’ll not only adhere to these mandates, but you’ll help fight climate change by doing your part to reduce CO2 emissions.

Make money by offering EV charging services

A public charging station is a value-added service. The charging station owner gets to set a price for charging, and it can be defined based on kilowatt-hours, the duration of the charging event, or a combination of the two. By charging a bit more than just the electricity price, EV drivers will pay off the investment. The earnings are transferred to the charging station owner on a monthly basis. Our API can integrate with existing parking operator systems. This translates to a seamless experience for your customers, along with a single bill for the entire visit.

Dynamic load management at a low cost

Offering fast charging is essential, especially as EV’s battery sizes and charging speeds are developing fast. At large parking complexes, it’s likely that a number of electric cars will be charged simultaneously. Dynamic load management (DLM), ensures that the electricity system will not overload and cars are always charged with the maximum power available. Investing in excessive electricity capacity is unnecessary - Virta’s smart charging stations take care of electrical safety and efficiency for you.
