Why Gas Stations Aren’t Rushing To Install EV Chargers
June 30, 2021
Many gas stations are open seven days a week, 24 hours a day — and stations are where the National Association of Convenience Stores estimates 40 million gasoline transactions take place every day.
The revolutionaries seem steadfast. Automakers have pledged to only produce electric models in years to come. President Joe Biden has touted, since the beginning of his campaign, the goal of installing half a million electric vehicle charging stations across the nation’s highways.
The big issue that these stations are having when considering putting in an EV charger is the payout from them and how long it will take to start making money on them with the price of them being drastically more expensive than regular gas pumps.
But could this be the perfect time for some of these fueling stations to move forward with EV charging stations? If you are the only fueling station with EV chargers, it’s like that old movie saying…If you build it, they will come!
