Problem is, the business is going to ask "what's the value proposition? what's in it for me? what's the cost/benefit of this?" Will it attract more paying customers or increase revenue? If yes, by how much vs. total cost of installing this device and the ongoing subscription fees (if Chargepoint) + electric bills + other ongoing costs.
If a business already is receiving enough/plenty business w/o this, they may not need any more.
I've had conversations w/someone who works for Chargepoint and (IIRC) he mentioned a problem is that for a business, each parking spot has a monetary value to them. If you tie up spaces by designating them only as EV spaces, when it's empty, that's one less (valuable) space that an ICEV (vast majority of vehicles) can't take use. To me, it sounds like it can be a losing proposition to install charging stations.
For instance, I can't see a local busy shopping mall sorta near me wanting to bother unless someone (e.g. govt) mandates they install them. They already are a zoo on weekends and reasonably busy on weekdays. Installing a couple EV charging stations I bet wouldn't be justified at all in cost. There are 8 free public L2 stations (I use these sometimes) only 1.1 miles away.
