The team behind smart electric vehicle (EV) charger Optimus, www.GoZeroCharge.com, is excited to be in attendance at the prestigious Salon Privé event at Blenheim Palace from today until Saturday, September 2, at stand R15.
Aware of the possible juxtaposition of a smart EV charger brand attending a celebration of modern classics, supercars and hypercars, Go Zero Charge is not trying to sway C-level executives, founders and influencers away from their favourite petrol or diesel vehicles. Rather, the team looks forward to engaging with business leaders, thought leaders and visionaries and informing them of the current lucrative opportunity for businesses to support EV charging solutions now and earn significant supplementary income as car parks become the fuelling stations of tomorrow.
At the event, Go Zero Charge is holding a free competition to win an Optimus charger, plus installation worth up to £1,500. The entry mechanism is simply scanning a QR code, though attendees also have the opportunity to complete a bespoke buzz-wire game to gain three additional entries.
Peter O’Brien, CMO at www.GoZeroCharge.com, commented:
“In addition to admiring the rare classic and new supercars at Salon Privé, this is a great opportunity for brands like ourselves to connect with business leaders, thought leaders and visionaries. Some people might question the presence of a smart EV charger brand at such an event but, simply put, attendees and members of Salon Privé are renowned as visionaries and we firmly believe they’ll see the untapped potential of commercial EV charging in car parking bays.
“We’re sure that whichever lucky winner walks away with their own Optimus will quickly realise that it’s the smartest EV charger on the market, plus we can’t wait to see attendees and members have fun with our buzz-wire game.”
For businesses, the reservable functionality of all Optimus chargers means that fewer chargers can support a large number of vehicles. The lucrative profit-per-kilowatt offering gives power back to businesses. For instance, a large-scale venue could choose to support one in 10 parking spaces with EV charging. If the venue had a capacity of 200 vehicles, using Go Zero Charge’s revenue calculator, charging an additional £0.30 per kilowatt at a conservative 20% utilisation (percentage of use in 24 hours – four hours and 48 minutes per day) could generate £66,759 in potential profit per year*. As EVs become the new norm, such a conservative estimate of utilisation is certain to increase on a yearly basis, offering even more money-making potential to businesses.
Unlike other companies which offer EV car parking solutions either cheaply or even free, Go Zero Charge gives its commercial partners 100% of their EV charging profits and only adds a fee per kW on top of the charge (post-installation). With a searchable network and reservable system, businesses, multi-dwelling apartment complexes, venues and more have full control over whether and when others can access each charger. EV drivers then pay for the kilowatt hours they use, providing a supplementary income for the Optimus charger owner.
All commercial partners gain access to the Go Zero Charge portal, an online interface which monitors every charging unit every 60 seconds, which parking bays are reserved and how much profit is being generated, including allowing businesses to determine profit margins by adjusting the additional charge per kWh for electricity. Furthermore, venues with private parking, such as apartment complexes, are free to open chargers to the public and generate additional revenue.
Users gain access to a wide range of advanced functions which provide a stress-free charging experience. Go Zero Charge’s easy-to-use mobile app allows total peace of mind, as customers can visit any business, car park or venue knowing that a charger and space has been fully reserved and will be available upon arrival.
