Every day more and more drivers choose electric cars in Ukraine. This creates a corresponding demand for opening charging stations for electric cars for both personal and commercial (business) purposes.

We will talk about the possibility of registering a company that will use electricity for commercial purposes, for example, to open Your own business with electric charging stations.

Is it profitable to open an electric charging station in Ukraine?

The average cost of electricity supplied to legal entities is about four UAH.  

Calculations per 100 kilowatts:

  • 4 UAH * 100 kilowatt = 400 UAH per 100 kilowatt (legal entity);
  • 1,5 UAH * 100 kilowatts = 150 UAH per 100 kilowatts (physical person).

Thus, it turns out that at 100 kilowatts, individuals save about 150 - 200 UAH. 

But when doing business, you will need to join the rapidly developing energy market. In this case, you need to decide what will be cheaper: to buy electricity on the market yourself or through intermediaries?

According to our experience, most often independent registration on the electricity market, and thus obtaining a license for electricity supply, will give you more opportunities and will be more profitable.
