As businesses come back to life after the pandemic, new revenue streams have become important to make up for the losses incurred due to the numerous lockdowns. A lucrative option for business owners across Ireland is to explore the option of installing EV chargers at their commercial centre such as restaurant, gas station, other commercial buildings.
